The easiest way to do that would be to enclose your tabular in a document, with the standalone class.

\documentclass[a4paper, 11pt]{standalone}




Then compile it with dvipng or use ImageMagick to convert the div into a png.

    divpng is also available for windows. You could also use ImageMagick to convert the div in an png. Apparently MikTex has a program called dvipng.exe that converts dvi's to png's.

  • @Ricardo Please note the difference between preview and crop option of standalone package. More about it here: tex.stackexchange.com/q/63045/3235
