Pdfimages saves images from a Portable Document Format (PDF) file as Portable
Pixmap (PPM), Portable Bitmap (PBM), or JPEG files.
Pdfimages reads the PDF file
PDF-file, scans one or more pages, and writes one PPM, PBM, or JPEG file for each image,
nnn is the image number and
xxx is the image type (.ppm, .pbm, .jpg).
Pdfimages reads a configuration file at startup. It first tries to
find the users private config file, ~/.xpdfrc. If that doesnt
exist, it looks for a system-wide config file, /etc/xpdf/xpdfrc. See the
man page for details.
Many of the following options can be set with configuration file
commands. These are listed in square brackets with the description of
the corresponding command line option.
Specifies the first page to scan.
Specifies the last page to scan.
Normally, all images are written as PBM (for monochrome images) or PPM
(for non-monochrome images) files. With this option, images in DCT
format are saved as JPEG files. All non-DCT images are saved in
PBM/PPM format as usual.
