How to Extract Images from PDF?

Discussion in 'Graphics & Multimedia' started by MiletNZ, Sep 21, 2010.

    Hey all,

    Before you reply and tell me to google, I have Googled this and found a few solutions but I want to see if anyone here has done this successfully?

    I've got some PDF Articles I want to turn into posts on my Site and some of them have photos I want to extract and use on my site (not just in the article).

    Anyone done this? What program or method has given you the best quality image?

    Reverse engineering is the best method . Used it plenty of times . And the quality is as good as the original .

    Have had a look at the first two options thanks for the advice, but I went with just saving the pics through Photoshop, it seems to look okay

    1. Open pdf file in FineReader (Adobe) or CuneiForm (Free)
    2. Save all pages as images.
    3. Edit the images (in any graphics editor).

    Seems like more effort than it's worth. This is the way I eneded up going with:
    Open PDF in Acrobat Reader
    Right Click Picture and Copy
    In photoshop go to New File - It automatically changes the Image size to the same size as the picture in Clipboard
    Paste and Save as png

    many of the above techniques work and if all else fails, simply do an "screen capture" then edit the .jpg in Photoshop

    I also use Photoshop to open the files, or if there are too many, I use Adobe Acrobat and I save them as .jpg or whatever type.

    Good luck :)

    I found PDF to Image Converter that convert PDF files to several image formats such as JPEG, JPG, TIFF, PNG and more.. great tool for short PDF files.

    I use FineReader and text recognition. Than safe pictures or text with pictures, as I need. It is a very easy-in-use program so I don't think you will have problems with it.

    For those that don't have or can't afford Adobe products - Try Xara, it'll open the PDF, and if it hasn't been flattened, you'll be able to grab the graphics and export.
