Hi all!
I'm needing a way to check out the contents of a PDF file. The PDF's I deal with contain pages that make up a comic book. Each page in the PDF is a single TIF file ( with no extra nothings :) ). Just single tiffs of each page. SO - a 24 page PDF contains 24 tiffs (that fill the complete page). To which I impose - then print to a color printer with a booklet finisher.

What I'm needing is a way to view the specs ( size, dpi, mode ... ) of every tiff in the PDF to check that they are in spec (my specs) before I send them to print. I use both Acrobat 7 Pro and 8 Pro so I'm hoping there is something in them to generate a report of some type - But - I'm not against getting something else to run the PDF through to get that info. I could always export the files out of the PDF and check them out, one-by-one, in Photoshop but that would waste A LOT of time. :)

Anyone knows something to help me out? THANKS!!!

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
