Console: Convert an extra large PDF page to a TIFF image.

Post by Alex » Tue Nov 22, 2016 7:04 pm

This topic contains a code sample that shows how to convert an extra large PDF page to a TIFF image:

Code: Select all

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Drawing;
using System.IO;
using Vintasoft.Imaging;
using Vintasoft.Imaging.Codecs.Decoders;
using Vintasoft.Imaging.Codecs.Encoders;
using Vintasoft.Imaging.Codecs.ImageFiles;
using Vintasoft.Imaging.ImageRendering;

    /// This example shows how to convert PDF page of unlimited size to a TIFF file.<br />
    /// Size of PDF page is not limited because image renderer divides PDF page into tiles and
    /// process each tile separately.<br />
    /// Size of TIFF image is not limited because TIFF encoder divides TIFF image into tiles and
    /// process each tile separately.
    /// </summary>

VintaSoft Imaging .NET SDK (Standard) (Vintasoft.Imaging.dll) and VintaSoft PDF .NET Plug-in (Reader) (Vintasoft.Pdf.dll) are necessary for executing this sample.
