Convert PDF file to image in memory
Posted on 2013-01-18
I have an ASP.NET/VB.NET application that needs open a PDF file (that can have more than one page) and convert each page of it to image in memory (System.Drawing.Image field type) to insert in a SQL Server table.
I know how transform a System.Drawing.Image field to Byte() for put in a table column, but I don't know how open a PDF file and convert it to System.Drawing.Image field. How can I do this with most possible low cost (free is great)? Can I use Adobe Acrobat SDK? How?
Please, if possible post source code in VB.NET.
Thanks in advance,
