Import PDF

Post by Yan Callier »

Hi,
I don't understand why I can't use a PDF in XnConvert. I have that in te status tab :
C:\Users\ycallier\Desktop\Alternative PhotoShop\Fond PAVE2.pdf 0x0x0 : pas une image

Fichiers sources: 1
Page(s) extraite(s): 0

Durée totale: 0 seconde
' Pas une image ' means 'Not an image' in english

Do anyone knows this problem ?
Many Thanks
cday

Do you have Ghostsript installed, 32-bit or 64-bit depending on the version of XnConvert you are using?

XnConvert will only process the first page of a multi-page PDF, I think. If you need to process the images in a multi-page file it would be necessary to extract the images in the PDF file to a folder and then process them as images in XnConvert.

If XnConvert won't open even the first page of your PDF file, could you upload an example file (1MB max) that won't open?

Hi cday,
I don't have Ghoscript installed.
I use a single page PDF. I upload an exemple, but it is the same thing with all my pdf document.
Thanks

Hi Yan,

You need GhostScript http://www.ghostscript.com/download/gsdnld.html installed to open PDF files using Xnview software, 32-bit or 64-bit according to the version of XnConvert you are using.

Your file opens with XnConvert 1.55, I haven't checked with 1.60 but it should be the same.

Edit:

XnConvert opens PDF files using a default DPI value of 300, this value can be changed if necessary as follows:

In general, higher DPI values produce higher quality images but also larger file sizes.
