Can't you just lift that part of the file and save it as a pdf?

(Oh, and you should ask permission to reproduce any figure from the copyright holder)

What operating system are you using? I'm only really used to apple nowadays, in which case you can use preview to copy into a new file and then save as pdf. On windows, I'm not sure how you can do this (though there must be a way).
