Clipped and Scaled image example:

PDF files can contain not just images but also complex clips and this fully automated example program allows you to extract each image and apply the clip associated with it. But how do you get the images from the PDF files complete with clipping?

Using JPedal to extract images

With JPedal you can extract all clipped images from a PDF at the highest possible quality or generate copies in user configurable sizes. Try the example code…

The above output was obtained by instructing JPedal to create one image 142 pixels high, another at 213 pixels high and the final image unscaled. The number of images and sizes required are all user configurable.
