I currently need to extract all the images from a multi-page pdf file with the requirement that the original quality of the images be retained.

The description of Pdf-Xchange Editor is promising, so I tried it on a 300 page pdf file.
After two attempts, I got the same result: Pdf-Xchange Editor closes itself at about 25% of the progress bar. I could not find any traces (I mean image files) of the processed images in the specified folder.

@AndTheWolf: confirmed, thanks for that. Updating entry.

The OCR language files for English, Spanish, French, German, Czech, and Finnish now are already in the "Tesseract" folder of the portable zip package, and there is no longer an OCRBaseLangPack.zip download on the OCR language page. The are other languages there, but six mentioned here are already in the base product.

I had a document with both text and pasted images. While Acrobat Pro kept complaining there was rendered text and wouldn't OCR the available images, PDFXChange got right to it.

As with other PDF-Exchange products the editor doesn't disappoint, it works as advertised and does all I want and more :)

Motion granted. :D

That's fine too, this program is great, it deserves more comments all the same!

@Special ;-)

I'd suggest leaving the thread as it stands;
Just consider this entertaining sequence of comments as some harmless comic relief...;-)

If two registered users press the waste-basket icon, the pesky comment will be deleted all the same. So, which one do you want me to click? 3:)
