    image capturing


    Hi All gurus,

    My problem may sounds a silly one but definitely i need help on it.
    PROBLEM:
    Is there any way that we can capture images from an PDF within the specified dimensions.

    The problem is something more than this but this is the initial phase of it.

    Open it with gimp, set the resolution for your needs (eg 300 dpi), and select the page you want. Then you can cut bits of the image as needed.

    Thanks for the suggestions but i am looking for an automation process where in i have to capture around 1200 images with an range of 750 x 450 pixels. probably a tool or an script ( or both) will work in this case . please send me the solutions.

    Take a look at ImageMagick. That can convert pdf's to jpegs and work on the converted files as well. You should be able to drive it with scripts, don't think your going to find a ready made tool that just works.
