Photoshop will open both file types, you can then use photoshop to convert/resave as any other format you like, eg. jpg, png, gif...
Fireworks will open ai files.

Hi blueohyess,

Yup, Photoshop would be my first choice. If you don't have it a good alternative is The Gimp. Besides being a very powerful raster image editor, The Gimp is free. Yes, free. You can download your free Gimp from:


Documentation doesn't mention ability to open Illustrator files but it says "many others." It does open PDF, though. And being a free program it's worth the download to find out.

Why go thru all that troble when you can do it directly from Illustrator?
Im guessing you are using Illustrator since you are mentioning .ai...
Anyway just do this: file > export > jpg > image quality: 10, color model: RGB, resolution depth: screen (72 dpi), anti-alias: checked
...and you'll end up with a fine jpg file that you can place on any webpage you want.

Not sure what you mean by main body of the page. Most browsers will open a pdf as a new page. If all they want to show is the pdf, just upload the pdf to your server, put a link to it and it will open as a page by itself.

here is another way, just open pdf with Adobe acrobat reader, zoom file to 100% and make a screen shot  "Alt + Print Screen" then you can paste it in word document and save as jpg.
