Print to Image and Other Rasterizing Options

Thumbnail the cover or rasterize the entire document.

You might sometimes need to convert PDF to other graphics formats. You can easily add a “Print to Image” printer by following [Hack #39] and changing a few ingredients. Alternatively, rasterize your PDF documents using Adobe Acrobat or Photoshop. Because Photoshop gives you the most power, you might prefer to “Print to PDF” and then open these pages in Photoshop.

Install a PNG (or JPEG or TIFF) Printer

The procedure for creating a bitmap (e.g., TIFF, JPEG, PNG) printer is the same as the procedure for creating the PDF printer in [Hack #39] . The configuration is just a little different. In this example, we’ll configure a PNG printer, but you just as easily can create a JPEG or TIFF printer. The DEVICE option determines what gets created. We discuss alternative devices a little later.
