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

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.

       -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 font:

	      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 font dictionary object ID (number and generation)

       -opw password
	      Specify  the owner password for the PDF file.  Providing this will bypass all secu-
	      rity 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.)

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.
