One of the solutions to be able to extract all the Thumbnails of
the one PDF file and write them into a new PDF file, is to use a
PostScript Applet.

A PostScript Applet is a small program written in a PostScript
language (levels 2/3), just like an ascii simple text file. Totally
multiplatform (Win, Mac, Unix), we edit it in a text processor to
configurate the working preferences in each case. To execute it, we open
it (Distillate) with the Acrobat Distiller (v.
3 or 4) and ...voilą!

The filosofy of a PostScript Applet gives a lot of agility in
the development (free of interfaces and
platforms) and it gives direct solutions to specific problems in the
world of PDF and PostScript.

If you are interested in receiving a Demo of this working
procedure, please let me know and in some days you will receive the
PostScript Applet adapted to your needs.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Marc Antoni Malagarriga
