Hi James,

We have an Active-X software to do it. It can be called from an ASP
page or from an application.

This Active-X software uses Acrobat API and there is a limitation in
**their copyright** that says it can NOT be used in a Server Machine. If
you can do that conversion in a workstation, then maybe you can be
interested in our tool.

Our tool exists for JPEG and PNG output formats and allows convert one
by one or a massive group of PDF's selecting pages and thumbnails sizes.

Feel free to contact me for further questions.

Best Regards,

Francesc Garre & Marc Antoni Malagarriga
