extract data from pdf
« on: October 02, 2012, 04:37:16 PM »
hello!

pdf manipulation is really cumbersome, but I really need to do the following:

- identify text blocks (editable or not), tables, photos, etc (draw a rectangular around them)
- extract them in their original size (for photos) or take a screenshot of them in the best possible resolution

how can I do these?

thanks!

For the record -
this seems to be more or less a repeat of this thread:

extracting info from pdf

edit/
There may well have been major advances since then, but imo it's worth looking there so it doesnt all get repeated ;-)
