I dont know if this is exactly what you are looking for, but you could use CutePDF.

CutePDF is a small app that installs a printer on your machine that "prints" your file to a PDF. You can set resolution and everything. If you print specific pages, it will take those pages out of your document and make them into a seamless PDF.

Also, it is free! Hope that helps!

Adobe acrobat pro can provide this functionality. Not free though. I think what you are asking for would need a lot of code.

Thanks for the comments - Cutepdf doesn't do what I meed

I have tried with adope pro - still requires me to do it manually - Iwas hoping for an automated process.
