I would be interested in the answer to this question myself. My question is why do you want to do this and do you have another format (SGML) that you could convert from. I am dealing with mimosa disks at the moment and they are in SGML and PDF format. (I can convert SGML to TIFF)

I don't think you're going to find an easy solution to this one. The Adobe web site contains the tech spec on the .PDF file format, but it's not a bitmap object internally. You have to render it and convert the rendered image into a bitmap. A much more challenging operation.

The only way I can think to do it is manually by screen capturing the Adobe (in full screen mode - <Shift/Ctrl/L>) and then pasting into PaintBrush and saving from there.

There is a print driver (with .OCX available) from Imecom (formerly Fax Resources) www.faxresource.com that will convert simply by "printing" to the driver... can convert to any standard .tif format. Cost is about 500 (site license), tho.. but it is great.
I used it to implement an enterprise fax server and imaging system.
It's available for windows '95/98 and NT (3.51 and higher)

By the way, they have a downloadable full-functioning demo at www.faxresource.com... the only "gotcha" is that it burns in a "Demo" overlay in your pages.....
