Have you tried this one: http://www.aidecad.com/

Thanks will try that in future when need.
But now I need an image file either JPG or Tiff for a presentation.
Raheman M. AbdulCommented:
Workaround: Press Printscreen and paste it in MSPaint
follow the above step a few times if you want to capture all your drawing and paste into MSPaint joining the previous image screnshots.
Save the file as JPG

Yes can certainly do that but we are talking about a 24"x36" full size drawing PDF so screen capture to Paint would lose a lot of quality.
Raheman M. AbdulCommented:
I dont think we lose the quality (if i am not wrong)
Try photoshop or any other alternative software.
See if someone helps better solution.

I'm thinking it may be your default TIF and JPG viewers might be at issue, but...

At the risk of possibly degrading the image (possible but hopefully not likely), could you print the PDF to Letter size using the Adobe PDF print driver to get the image into 8.5x11 size for which a save into TIF and/or JPG should work afterward?
