how to avoid that pdfimages split the images?


I am trying to convert a pdf to jpg, and import it into a lightweight vector graphics in Linux to add text and lines (vector so that I can edit and change it).

When I run:
pdfimages -j file-single-page.pdf  images-output
Unfortunately, it cuts the images into 2 pieces.

Would you know how to avoid this?

thank you

I don't have a clue about "pdfimages" and I'm replying to bump your thread. A workaround might be to open the .pdf to the page whose image you want to capture with fbgs, log in to another tty and run fbgrab. You'd have to convert the resultant .png to the format you want.

I just used this:
pdfimages -f 2 -l 2  -j Wurthe.pdf Wurthe
with no problem to convert page 2 of the pdf to a .jpg.
