The task of the day: extract all images from a PDF file.

I have found a little utility on my Linux box called pdfimages (it’s from the package xpdf). With this great command line tool you can save all the graphics from the file (as you can see from the following example which produces a series of numbered images with “ImagesFromPDF” as the prefix):

# pdfimages -j PDFFileName.pdf ImagesFromPDF
