JPedal Java PDF Viewer logo


JPedal is written in 100% Java and does not need additional platform-specific native libraries to be installed. If it runs Java 8 or above, it runs JPedal.

There will be times when using a PDF document is not enough. It might be the case that you need high quality detail, or want thumbnails of pages from your document. Then the JPedal PDF to Image Conversion tool (part of the JPedal Java PDF Libarary SDK) is all you need.
The image below shows pages from a PDF converted to PNG files using JPedal.

The ConvertPagesToHiResImages class includes additional options to obtain the best possible quality. For example you can scale up the PDF page rather than scaling down the raw images.
