I am looking for a program that will convert a .pdf file into a .tif image. The .pdf files are maps that are created using a CAD application, which one I don't know. Ideally, we would like an application that would allow my customer to perform batch conversions (more than one file at a time). If any of you know of such a utility, please pass the information along as soon as possible.

If the PDFs are ONE page you can open them in illustrator and export as TIFF.

The above answers are correct, just wanted to add that I like to use Photoshop for this.  Since you're converting from a vector format to a raster format, Photoshop immediately gives you a small window upon opening the PDF file for setting the vector-to-raster conversion options (anti-alising, color conversion, pixel dimensions, resolution) on the fly.  Then you just Save As a TIF file.

I liked the driver option. It seemed to do the best job of any utility I have found up to this point. Thanks for the suggestion cypherljk.
