    Hi and welcome to TeX.SX. To clarify, do you mean an image or do you mean compile the document to a the final output? – Johannes_B Sep 15 '14 at 18:08
  • if you mean "image" such that it can be embedded into another document, is the document you want to convert just one page, or multiple pages? – barbara beeton Sep 15 '14 at 18:10
  • I mean an image. Right know when I compile the code I get some files inluding a pdf document. My intention is to transform the text document into an image in order to copy it to Word. – Jordi Bosch Sep 15 '14 at 18:10
  • I mean just one page. – Jordi Bosch Sep 15 '14 at 18:13
  • Perhaps tex.stackexchange.com/q/11866/17423 helps? – Sean Allred Sep 15 '14 at 18:17

I don't have enough points to comment but what exactly you are talking about? You want to convert a 1 page Tex document to image? Simply you can build as pdf and then convert pdf to images with many free tools.

  • Okey but I heard there is an easier method using directly the latex compiler to transform it into an image – Jordi Bosch Sep 15 '14 at 18:12

    Check here then. You can do that in the \documentclass – Odin Sep 15 '14 at 18:16
  • If it's one page .pdf document, you can include it anyway as image or using pdfpages package anyway. There is no need to convert to another image format again – user31729 Sep 15 '14 at 19:14

You must have ImageMagick installed. The following simulates everything you need to generated images from your TeX input file.

% filename.tex
% compile it with
% pdflatex -shell-escape filename.tex



\immediate\write18{pdflatex main.tex}
\immediate\write18{convert -density 100 main.pdf main-\@percentchar d.png }
