Hi everyone,

This is my first post and I am sure I will get solution from someone among so many experts over here. Thanks in advance.

Basically I need to extract the pdf pages as jpg/tiff and currently I am using the save as feature where the image type can be specified. Its working perfectly, but the problem I am facing is that the Text in the page is not so sharp as it looks in the pdf.

I saw on some website that, graphic and text image can be extracted separately. I have attached 2 sample images herewith 1 image is only about the graphics on that page as JPG format, and another image is about the Text and in PNG format as a transparency. Both the images are extracted from a pdf and are of a single page.

I would highly appreciate if any experts can help me about the process as how to extract the text image (transparency) and graphics separately.
