I understand that PHP GD library does not support convesion from a PDF file to a raster format.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a PHP script or Linux script (callable from PHP) that can do this conversion?

thanks

Or much more easier if you have shell access (ImageMagick too):

shell_exec ( "convert file.pdf file.gif" );
shell_exec ( "convert file.pdf file.png" );
shell_exec ( "convert file.pdf file.tif" );
shell_exec ( "convert file.pdf file.jpg" );
