PDF2IMG

Datalogics PDF2IMG is a conversion utility that allows you to transform pages in a PDF or XPS document into graphics image files like BMP, GIF or JPEG. You can also use PDF as one of the export formats. That means that you could take a 15-page PDF document and use PDF2IMG to turn it into 15 separate PDF documents, one PDF for each page in the original file. Or you could convert that 15-page PDF into a series of 15 different PNG files.

This product was created using the Adobe PDF Library, a Software Development Kit (SDK) based on Adobe Acrobat technology. The Adobe PDF Library is available from Datalogics.

PDF2IMG Versions

PDF2IMG Standard PDF2IMG Standard includes a command line utility designed to convert pages from PDF documents to image files. This is the simplest solution for customers interested in small-scale PDF conversions. For example, with PDF2IMG Standard, users can manually process individual PDF documents, or integrate the executable as a scriptable server tool for automatic and batch processing. PDF2IMG Standard is available for immediate purchase and download directly from our website on a subscription basis and is restricted to a single server per license.
PDF2IMG Pro PDF2IMG Pro provides the same command line utility as PDF2IMG Standard but also includes a set of APIs allowing you to integrate this software into custom C++, C#, .NET or Visual Basic applications. Also, PDF2IMG Pro provides advanced color and output options for generating graphics files from PDF documents. If you work in graphic arts or prepress, or generally need a broad range of color support for generating and printing content, PDF2IMG Pro is designed for you. PDF2IMG Pro is available for immediate purchase and download directly from our website on a subscription basis and is restricted to a single server per license.
PDF2IMG Premium PDF2IMG Premium offers all the features and functions of PDF2IMG Pro with flexible licensing and pricing arrangements to meet your large-scale processing needs. To purchase PDF2IMG Premium, contact our sales staff via our website or using sales@datalogics.com.

These features are provided with all three versions of the PDF2IMG software:

  1. PDF2IMG.exe. This executable is a command line program. Some command line options are only available in PDF2IMG Pro and PDF2IMG Premium.
  2. Resources. The PDF2IMG software release package includes a set of fallback fonts and CMap files. The product uses these resources when needed fonts are not embedded in a source PDF document that is to be converted and cannot be found in the system resource folders.

PDF2IMG Pro and Premium also include these components:

  1. PDF2IMGLIB. This is the primary library component (DLL on Windows or SO on Linux) that converts PDF document pages to image files. Individual APIs are described in the Appendix. PDF2IMGLIB uses the underlying Adobe PDF Library SDK.
  2. PDF2IMG.vcproj. This is the Microsoft Visual Studio project file with source code for building, running, and updating the PDF2IMG.exe to do your own additional development work. The command line arguments are described in Running the PDF2IMG Software.

The PDF2IMG COM interface is offered with PDF2IMG Premium only. This component performs the same conversion task and options as the command line program using a COM object. The PDF2IMG COM user interface can be used within a C# or VB application and is only available on Windows 32.
