My first suggestion is ImageMagick
() which is a complete open source image
processing library (and applications) that supports a large number of
image formats. It supports rendering PDF by "forking" Ghostscript
and then working with the returned data.

If you want something that doesn't require GS, or that is
faster and more robust, our SPDF_CP library ()
will happily render PDF documents directly to many image formats
(including TIFF). In fact, one of my test applications for SPDF_CP is
called pdftiff - guess what it does ;).
