What is a good, free Windows program I can use to batch convert PDF files to JPG files, please?

I have used TTRPDFToJPG3 (https://sourceforge.net/projects/ttrpdftojpg/) which would be ideal, except that when it batch converts the PDFs, it puts every outputted JPG into one folder, instead of sorting them into one folder of JPGs per PDF file. Not a major problem, and I can of course manually sort the JPGs themselves, but if there is a program that converts PDFs and then puts the JPGs into a folder named after the specific PDF then that would save a little trouble.

Thanks for any answers.

I've used Xpdf before. It takes a little time to get the command right but it might work for you. Looks like you'd need pdftopng then a second pass to convert PNG to JPG (ffmpeg or imagemagick).

I used it for work once. We asked for a spreadsheet and they sent PDFs and wouldn't budge. Xpdf came to the rescue and let me rip their poorly formatted tables out as plaintext so I could clean them up and get on with the project.
