Posted on 2010-01-07

Im trying to write an application, that has loads of PDF files in, and Id like to extract the first page as a jpg file which I can use as a thumbnail image.

Only thing is I can only find components that cost £100's that convert pdf to jpg. Does anyone know of a freebie I can use?

I know there are free pdf components for, but I cant seem to find one that converts to JPGs.

Any ideas?
