Best App for Complex PDF to HTML?

I have about 100 really nasty photo intensive advertising PDF's that I need to convert to HTML pages. I've taken screenshots of some of them but this will take forever. I have the budget to spend some money to purchase a program to convert the docments but most of the apps I have tried have not done well in converting these complex images and text layouts. Something that is more snapshot based may work the best for retaining the layout. I just need some suggestions of programs I might try. Thanks All

Sorry. PC running WIN2000. Bandwidth is a concern as well as the reason I'm converting them to HTML is because we cant have thousands of people DLing 5 meg PDF's at all times. Some apps are more efficient than others. I just have to find a good balance between size and quality.

would a jpeg be sufficient? i'm thinking you can make a photoshop action to do a batch convert to jpg, then have an html template to load the correct image with a javascript script.
can someone confirm that photoshop can read pdfs? i'm pretty sure, but i'm not in front of it right now to confirm.

Yup, Photoshop can read PDF files. If they contain vectors Photoshop will rasterize them.

That's a bit above my budget. Something like this is what I'm looking for. This app only screwed up about 10% of my PDF's

I have an old version of Photoshop 6. I don't see a batch option to save PDF's as jpg's. Can you add such a script to this version of Photoshop?

Swylen,

Yes. You can create an Action (which is a recorded macro) to Save As JPG. Then you use the Automate feature in Photoshop to run the Action in the contents of a whole folder.

Good Vibes!
