*IMPORTANT*

The image you just exported is now in the folder where you saved it. The exported jpg or whatever you selected is NOT the image in front of you. You will still be looking at the .pdf.

Go to the file where you exported the file to see the exported file.
In other words, if you didn’t change the file location in image 7, than your jpg should be sitting right beside your .pdf, in the same folder. Go to the folder where your .pdf is located and you’ll find your .jpg.
