Open the PDF document you want to extract a graphic.
On the Basic toolbar click the down arrow beside the Select Text button.
Choose the Select Image. ...
Click once on the graphic to select it.
Right click on the graphic.
Choose Save Image As.

One of the tools in the (free!) command line Xpdf utilities can do it. Here's a 5-minute EE video Micro Tutorial that shows how to download and install the utilities:
Xpdf - Command Line Utility for PDF Files

And here's another one that shows specifically how to extract all the images from all the pages of PDF files in one easy task — without have to do many individual right-clicks and Save As operations:

Not quite sure what you mean by that. What I'm trying to say is that (based on my experience — yours may be different) EE doesn't care a whole lot about getting the Topics "right" on a question. This is just one of a many examples that I've seen in my brief six years at EE. I'm sure you've seen many more in your 19 years here.

The first comment provides a manual method — select, right-click, Save. The second comment provides an automated method — a utility that automatically saves all images in a PDF. Both approaches work and deserve to be solutions — recommend a split.
