I fully agree that this is most likely a better way. It does not even have
to be single page PDF, as far as I know both imagemagick and ghostscript
can make single page bitmap images for each page in a multi page PDF.

So what would be needed is a shell script/BAT file with a row of commands
like the one above to convert the given PDF to several bitmap images of
different resolutions. The user exports to PDF and the runs the script. (In
Windows you could even put the BAT file in the Send to folder, then you can
right click on the PDF file and "send" it to the script.)
