Convert PDFs to images with the free online app, or learn how PDF rendering works with our embedded iText 8 Sandbox.

Render PDF to images using the free pdfRender app

Click the box to upload a PDF or drag and drop a file into the box. The maximum file size is 20 MB.

You will then be asked if you want to render all pages or a custom range. It is also required to select your preferred output format.

Next you can select a scaling percentage value or enter a custom number. The default is 100%.

Click Render PDF and then download the resulting zip file with the image(s).

Or play in the iText 8 Sandbox

In this Sandbox you can see how the pdfRender add-on works in iText 8, and experiment with changing the code yourself.

Click Upload File and make sure the file name of the PDF you upload matches the name you specify in private static final String ORIG.

Optionally you can adjust the rendering properties. Adjust the scaling of the output files with the setScaling() method or set the image format with the setImageType() method.

Then click Execute to run your code. To remove an uploaded file, click the x displayed next to the file name.


import com.itextpdf.pdfrender.PdfRenderImageType; import com.itextpdf.pdfrender.PdfToImageRenderer; import com.itextpdf.pdfrender.RenderingProperties; import java.io.File; import java.io.IOException; import java.io.*; public class PdfRender_Demo { private static String ORIG="/uploads/input.pdf"; private static String OUTPUT_DIRECTORY="/myfiles/"; public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException { final RenderingProperties properties = new RenderingProperties(); properties.setImageType(PdfRenderImageType.JPEG); properties.setScaling(1.0f); PdfToImageRenderer.renderPdf(new File(ORIG), new File(OUTPUT_DIRECTORY) + "/customfilename-%d", properties); } }
pdfRender is not natively available in C#. It is available in two versions; a Java version, and also a CLI (Command Line Interface) version which you can call from any language.
