Convert the PDF specified by "sourcepdf" to a color PNG image file "destpng". The "pdf2png" command can be one of:


PDF to color PNG


PDF to grayscale PNG


PDF to color PNG with transparent background


PDF to grayscale PNG with transparent background


If "pagenumber" is 0, all pages are converted as separate files one per page in the format:







If the "pagenumber" is greater than zero, the specified page number is saved to the filename specified by "destpng".


To convert a page range, specify the startpage and endpage instead of a pagenumber.


To set the output resolution of the PNG file, set the xresolution and yresolution.  If no resolution is specified, it will save at 300 DPI.


Any file names that contain spaces must be enclosed with quotation marks. The "sourcepdf" can be a local file path, or an web address (URL) to an existing PDF.


This feature requires a licensed version of Win2PDF. Contact us for a time limited evaluation license.
