EML to JPG: How To Bulk Convert .EML Into .JPG Files

Software screenshot.

People need to do all kinds of different things with email. In this article, we are continuing our series on converting .EML email files into different formats.  Today’s target format is the venerable .JPG or .JPEG file, which has existed in one form or another since 1987.

JPG is the most widely used format on the internet for encoding pictures. JPG image files are widely accessible and may be displayed on virtually any computer, tablet or smart phone. Because they are so accessible, JPG format is handy for a variety of reasons, including archiving image files for long term storage.

Eml Viewer Pro (also known as Pst Viewer Pro) is a multi-format email viewing tool that has strong export abilities.  One of the little known features of EML Viewer Pro is its ability to bulk convert email (both .msg and .eml files) into JPG files.

The image file below shows the entire process. Download a free 15 day trial of Eml Viewer Pro for your Windows computer and follow along.

The first step is to use the file explorer on the left side of the Eml Viewer Pro window to navigate to the location where your files are stored.They will be read into Eml Viewer Pro and displayed in an organized mail list. Your list may contain one, hundreds, or even thousands of .eml files.

Select the email(s) from the list that you want to export to JPG format. To select all of the emails in your list, type Ctrol-A on your key board. To select only one, just click on it. You can select a range of emails by holding down the shift key.

The next step is to locate the drop down list on the Eml Viewer Pro main menu. Choose the JPG export profile. This simply indicates to Eml Viewer Pro that the target format for it’s next export operation will be JPG.

Lastly, click the Export button. You may be asked to select the folder where Eml Viewer Pro will save the JPG files.  Select a folder and continue. The export operation will continue until the .eml files you selected have been converted into .jpg format.

The image shown above is an actual html email file that has been converted into a jpg image. The border was not part of the original email, which was actually very long and so we cropped it so that it would fit in this article. The actual dimensions of the resulting jpg image will depend upon the length of the message within the email file.

EML Viewer Pro will append the header information to the top of the jpg file, including From, Sender, To, and Subject line. The email message will follow. The message will be rendered as a html or rich text document first, or a text file.

Currently, file attachments are not converted to jpg format, and are ignored during the processing. If you need to convert emails into a format that supports converting file attachments, we recommend this article about how to use Eml Viewer Pro to convert your .eml files into pdf.

How to Archive .EML Emails as PNG Image Files

Files with the .eml extension are RFC-822 formatted email messages. EML Viewer Pro is a tool for managing eml files, and converting them to different formats, including image files like PNG, GIF, TIF and BMP. 


Today’s tutorial will show you how to use EML Viewer Pro to convert a html email message into a PNG file.  Download and install the 15 day free trial of EML Viewer Pro so you can follow along.

EML Viewer Pro can display your .eml and .msg email files in a list.  It’s easy to scroll through this list and browse your emails. You can also search your emails and display those that meet your specified criteria, such as a date range, from a certain sender, or emails that match a search query.

In our example, I have a html formatted .eml file that contains an advertisement from a computer sales company. Selecting the message from EML Viewer Pro’s message list causes the email to display.

To export this message to PNG format, I simply select the PNG export file from the drop down list in the toolbar. It is possible to select many .eml files for conversion (type Ctrol-A to select all emails in the list).  To start the export operation from eml to png, I click the export button.

The export button is the green down arrow that points to a yellow stack of paper (I drew a red arrow pointing to it in the above image).

The export operation will begin, and the email is formatted into a png file. The size of the png image file will vary with the length of the email.  In this example, you can see that the resulting PNG is quite long.  EML Viewer Pro has preserved the images and html formatting. The email header information is included in the top of the image.

Converting EML email files to PNG or other images are a good way to preserve emails for sharing or archiving. Because many html formatted emails have images that are hosted remotely, the contents of the email are not downloaded until the email is displayed. Saving the html email as a png file preserves a copy of the original message, and is not dependent upon the availability of a remote server.


EML Viewer Pro is a versatile tool that helps you transform your emails into many different formats. In addition to PNG, you can also format emails to pdf, csv (Excel), html, mhtml, and others. Download a free trial today and see what EML Viewer Pro can do for you.
