PDF Image Extraction Wizard is a free utility that allows you to easily extract bitmap images from PDF documents and store them as individual image files.

Hi!

Despite the interface type (I could bet that it was portable!!!), it writes about ten settings in the registry...

I had the same idea than Simon about this program!
Thanks, anyway.

This app basically tries to "remember" what you have previously typed eg. filename, first page, last page etc.

I don't have problem with that because it is most likely you are going to change these parameters anyway when you use it each time. It can't be your usage pattern is to process the same PDF + same page numbers over and over again! More likely, you will be using it occasionally to extract different pages from different PDF files, so the parameters that it writes to the registry isn't that not that much of a problem (unless you are into "stealth").

What bothers me is that it doesn't work! I tried a couple of PDFs (manual for my digital camera etc.) and it keeps telling me "Error with PDF permissions" even though I am 100% sure the PDF files are not password-protected.

Actually I tried with various manuals for Radioreceivers and not all of them could be processed. It works with unofficial PDF scanned manulas, but not really (or only partially) with the official ones...

I tried the program with various PDF's from commercial magazines. It extracted the pictures as advertized. I only had a problem once when I tried to extract pictures when the PDF file was open with the PDF reader.

This program - as nice as it is! - is not free. See here:

This program is shareware and costs $9.95 to register. The unregistered version will only extract the first 3 images in a PDF file. This limitation does not exist if you buy the full version.

Is this new?

Anyone eventually still has a completely free version?

Or knows of a free alternative, even not portable?

Cheers
Chris
