How to convert PDF into an image-only PDF?

Post by ryancole11 » Tue Dec 20, 2011 6:29 pm

Hi all,

I'm trying to open a PDF, loop through all of the pages in the PDF and render them to an image, and then insert that image into a new, second PDF. The end result is an image-only copy of the first PDF.

I used to be able to do this, but it looks like the only option for rendering an image of a PDF page into a new PDF is to use the Render+OCR function. I do not want to OCR the new image.

Is it still possible to put a non-OCR image into a PDF?

Thanks

Yes, it is still possible to put a non-OCR image into a PDF. This can be done by inserting the image directly into the PDF document or by converting the image to a raster image format and then inserting the image into the PDF.
