NAME

       pdftoppm  -  Portable  Document  Format  (PDF) to Portable Pixmap (PPM) converter (version
       3.03)

SYNOPSIS

       pdftoppm [options] PDF-file PPM-root

DESCRIPTION

       Pdftoppm converts Portable Document Format (PDF) files to color image  files  in  Portable
       Pixmap (PPM) format, grayscale image files in Portable Graymap (PGM) format, or monochrome
       image files in Portable Bitmap (PBM) format.

       Pdftoppm reads the PDF file, PDF-file, and writes one PPM file for  each  page,  PPM-root-
       number.ppm, where number is the page number.

OPTIONS

       -f number
              Specifies the first page to convert.

       -l number
              Specifies the last page to convert.

       -o     Generates only the odd numbered pages.

       -e     Generates only the even numbered pages.

       -singlefile
              Writes only the first page and does not add digits.

       -r number
              Specifies the X and Y resolution, in DPI.  The default is 150 DPI.

       -rx number
              Specifies the X resolution, in DPI.  The default is 150 DPI.

       -ry number
              Specifies the Y resolution, in DPI.  The default is 150 DPI.

       -scale-to number
              Scales  the  long side of each page (width for landscape pages, height for portrait
              pages) to fit in scale-to pixels. The size of the short side will be determined  by
              the aspect ratio of the page.

       -scale-to-x number
              Scales  each page horizontally to fit in scale-to-x pixels. If scale-to-y is set to
              -1, the vertical size will determined by the aspect ratio of the page.

       -scale-to-y number
              Scales each page vertically to fit in scale-to-y pixels. If scale-to-x  is  set  to
              -1, the horizontal size will determined by the aspect ratio of the page.

       -x number
              Specifies the x-coordinate of the crop area top left corner

       -y number
              Specifies the y-coordinate of the crop area top left corner

       -W number
              Specifies the width of crop area in pixels (default is 0)

       -H number
              Specifies the height of crop area in pixels (default is 0)

       -sz number
              Specifies the size of crop square in pixels (sets W and H)

       -cropbox
              Uses the crop box rather than media box when generating the files

       -mono  Generate a monochrome PBM file (instead of a color PPM file).

       -gray  Generate a grayscale PGM file (instead of a color PPM file).

       -png   Generates a PNG file instead a PPM file.

       -jpeg  Generates a JPEG file instead a PPM file.

       -jpegopt jpeg-options
              When  used with -jpeg, takes a list of options to control the jpeg compression. See
              JPEG OPTIONS for the available options.

       -tiff  Generates a TIFF file instead a PPM file.

       -tiffcompression none | packbits | jpeg | lzw | deflate
              Specifies the TIFF compression type.  This defaults to "none".

       -freetype yes | no
              Enable or disable FreeType (a TrueType / Type 1 font rasterizer).  This defaults to
              "yes".

       -thinlinemode none | solid | shape
              Specifies the thin line mode. This defaults to "none".

       "solid":
              adjust lines with a width less than one pixel to pixel boundary and paint it with a
              width of one pixel.

       "shape":
              adjust lines with a width less than one pixel to pixel boundary and paint it with a
              width of one pixel but with a shape in proportion to its width.

       -aa yes | no
              Enable or disable font anti-aliasing.  This defaults to "yes".

       -aaVector yes | no
              Enable or disable vector anti-aliasing.  This defaults to "yes".

       -opw password
              Specify  the  owner  password  for  the  PDF  file.  Providing this will bypass all
              security restrictions.

       -upw password
              Specify the user password for the PDF file.

       -q     Don't print any messages or errors.

       -v     Print copyright and version information.

       -h     Print usage information.  (-help and --help are equivalent.)

EXIT CODES

       The Xpdf tools use the following exit codes:

       0      No error.

       1      Error opening a PDF file.

       2      Error opening an output file.

       3      Error related to PDF permissions.

       99     Other error.

JPEG OPTIONS

       When JPEG output is specified, the -jpegopt  option  can  be  used  to  control  the  JPEG
       compression  parameters.   It  takes  a  string  of  the form "<opt>=<val>[,<opt>=<val>]".
       Currently the available options are:

       quality
              Selects the JPEG quality value. The value must be an integer between 0 and 100.

       progressive
              Select progressive JPEG output.  The  possible  values  are  "y",  "n",  indicating
              progressive (yes) or non-progressive (no), respectively.

       optimize
              Sets  whether  to  compute optimal Huffman coding tables for the JPEG output, which
              will create smaller files but make an extra pass over the data. The value  must  be
              "y"  or "n", with "y" performing optimization, otherwise the default Huffman tables
              are used.
