    I had this very issue two weeks ago. I ended up using Adobe’s convert pdf to jpeg software. If I had more than a one page pdf, then the pdf embedder would have been the go to solution.

    I’m trying to insert the pdf into a current website page but can’t figure out how to access the plug in as you are showing at the 1:23 mark. What am I missing? Thanks so much. I’ve been adding pgn files to my pages/post and they are always blurry. A friend suggesting adding a pdf instead.
