Convert .tif to .jpeg

A coworker has a flyover tif file which is too big to register in another program. I am trying to convert it to a .jpeg.


I tried the copy raster function, but couldn't get it to work. It is already RGB, 8 bit unsigned, so I didn't understand what the problem was. Error message:


Executing: CopyRaster "N:\Common\Pad Scans\151005_Pad5_ortho-full.tif" "N:\Common\Pad Scans\151005_Pad5_ortho-full.jpg" # # # NONE

Anyways, I loaded it as a layer, and just exported the map as a .jpeg, 3000 dpi works size wise. Our problem is that the corners of the image have a known location, and the export is adding a margin to the image. Trying to remove the margins is affecting the aspect ratio, or cutting out parts of the image.


Can someone please tell me either how to export the image with no margins, or how to import the image to not have margins in the first place?
