       pdfimages - Portable Document Format (PDF) image extractor (version 3.03)


       pdfimages [options] PDF-file image-root


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


       -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.

       -list  Instead of writing the images, list the images along with various  information  for
              each image. Do not specify an image-root with this option.

              The following information is listed for each image:

              page   the page number containing the image

              num    the image number

              type   the image type:

                     image - an opaque image
                     mask - a monochrome mask image
                     smask - a soft-mask image
                     stencil - a monochrome mask image used for painting a color or pattern

              Note:  Tranparency  in  images is represented in PDF using a separate image for the
              image and the mask/smask.  The mask/smask used  as  part  of  a  transparent  image
              always immediately follows the image in the image list.

              width  image width (in pixels)

              height image height (in pixels)

              Note:  the  image  width/height is the size of the embedded image, not the size the
              image will be rendered at.

              color  image color space:

                     gray - Gray
                     rgb - RGB
                     cmyk - CMYK
                     lab - L*a*b
                     icc - ICC Based
                     index - Indexed Color
                     sep - Separation
                     devn - DeviceN

              comp   number of color components

              bpc    bits per component

              enc    encoding:

                     image - raster image (may be Flate or LZW compressed but  does  not  use  an
                     image encoding)
                     jpeg - Joint Photographic Experts Group
                     jp2 - JPEG2000
                     jbig2 - Joint Bi-Level Image Experts Group
                     ccitt - CCITT Group 3 or Group 4 Fax

              interp "yes" if the interpolation is to be performed when scaling up the image

              object ID
                     the image dictionary object ID (number and generation)

       -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.

       -q     Don't print any messages or errors.

       -v     Print copyright and version information.

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


       The Xpdf tools use the following exit codes:
