This question already has an answer here:

On the genealogy site one often needs to include scanned image of old documents for clarity and interpretation. This is fine when working with JPEG files, but I have been working with a source that insists on downloading images as PDF files. I have no way to convert those to JPEG files locally. Is there a way to get Imgur to store these files, so that I can include a link in my questions?

When I need to do this at the Genealogy & Family History Stack Exchange I just open the PDF on my laptop running Windows 7 and then use the Snipping Tool to take a screenshot of the part of the image which is relevant to my post.

I would not advise attaching PDFs or including whole images images of genealogical documents unless you have checked their Copyright.
