PDF to JPG file

I was wondering if it is possible to have a VB program read in a pdf file and write each page as a jpg file.  Is there an API call for PDF writer that I could do this with.  I need to do this in batch mode.

There is no product called "PDF writer", you probably mean Adobe Acrobat (vs. the Adobe Reader). There is a "Save As" JPG function in Acrobat. With VB you can use the VB/JavaScript bridge in Acrobat that allows you to call a number of Acrobat JavaScript functions. This should (I've never done this myself) allow you to save the file as JPG images.

Which version of Acrobat do you have?

I don't have Acrobat yet, I was wondering if anybody could provide a solution first.
