Projects / PdfRipImage


PdfRipImage is a utility to extract images from .pdf files and convert them to the format of your choice. It is really a front-end for 'pdfimages' from Xpdf and 'pnmto*' from netpbm. The program is available as a command line shell script and a GNOME graphical version.

        This really came in handy recently when I inadvertently deleted a file, and needed to recover it from inside a PDF. Thanks!

        It would be helpful if it would tell you, once you've extracted the images, that it's put them in a directory for you.
