NAME

       pdfimages - Portable Document Format (PDF) image extractor (version 3.00)

SYNOPSIS

       pdfimages [options] PDF-file image-root

DESCRIPTION

       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, image-root-nnn.xxx, where nnn is the image number and xxx is
       the image type (.ppm, .pbm, .jpg).

OPTIONS

       -f number
              Specifies the first page to scan.

       -l number
              Specifies the last page to scan.

       -j     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.

       -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.

       -p     Include page numbers in output file names.

       -v     Print copyright and version information.

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