Topic: Rasterizing a PDF file to a BMP or TIIFF
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 131502

I am currently rasterizing a pdf file to a BMP or Tiff image. The tools I have tried are PDF2Image and 3-Heights™ PDF to BMP Converter API. However both these tools seem to have problems with a few of the pdf files. i.e. I have had missing words, wrong letter substitution, weird colour substitution, missing objects such as symbols in the raterized images. All I need is to get a high resolution colour bmp or tiff file that looks exactly like the pdf file.

I was wondering if anyone could suggest a third party tool that I could use in my VB application, which would raterize a pdf file to a bmp or tiff. The resolution requirements would be a minimum resolution of 300 dpi and maximum resolution of 600 dpi [if I can get more than 600 that would be an added bonus].

Thanks for all your help.
