The cURL command can also be used to access REST APIs via command line terminals. So we are going to convert the first page of PDF to JPG where the resultant file is saved to Cloud storage. Now in order to access Aspose.PDF Cloud, we need to first generate a JSON Web Token (JWT) while executing the following command.

curl -v "https://api.aspose.cloud/connect/token" \
-d "grant_type=client_credentials&client_id=bbf94a2c-6d7e-4020-b4d2-b9809741374e&client_secret=1c9379bb7d701c26cc87e741a29987bb" \
-H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" \
-H "Accept: application/json"

Now that we have the JWT token, please execute the following command to convert pdf to image format.

curl -v -X PUT "https://api.aspose.cloud/v3.0/pdf/URL2PDF.pdf/pages/1/convert/jpeg?outPath=ConvertedPage.jpeg&width=800&height=1000" \
-H  "accept: application/json" \
