Lately I have been receiving lots of artwork etc. in PDF files. I don't have Photoshop, but I am looking for a way to be able to work with PDF files for free. I notice many free alternatives when I Google it, but figured with all the artists and etc. on the forum that maybe someone had some thoughts on what I could do. Any help is appreciated. Cheers.

I was talking about taking an actual screenshot, I guess it depends on the size of the PDF though, if you go that way you'll probably lose quality too.

If you have Linux (*nix, whatever) you can use pdfimages to extract the graphics from a pdf file. If you don't have it I can help you out.

edit: might work on OS X too, but I have not investigated.

Adobe Acrobat reader is enough to read Pdf files, and it's free.

The pdf you have are psd files saved as pdf ... you'll need the psd files to modify these artworks with photoshop ...

So you need a PDF editor?

http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfedit/

Is this for windows?

Lots of options:

Again, *nix for the win. pdf2ps will generate a ps file from a pdf.
