You can install imagemagick and you can do it with:

convert filname.pdf outputfilename.jpg

How do I get to imagemagick? Assume I know nothing because that is pretty
much the case. I don't understand because I was able to put the picture on
my facebook page.

You can install imagemagick in the Software Center. If you prefer a tool that is graphical rather than command-line, you might want to use GIMP to perform the conversion. GIMP is provided by the package called gimp and it can also be installed in the Software Center.

Its a package like any other you can install. Using imagemagic will install less than if you install Gimp. Depends how much drive space you have to use.

Can you help with this problem?
