Sub_title: No commandline tools, please.
 

After 2 days of searching unsuccessfully for a Linux prog to extract images from PDF files, (NOT convert PDF to image)
I grabbed what appeared to be the best 3 Windoze apps available:
pdf_image_extraction_wizard
bex23
pdfedittools.

Unbelievable! I have never seen such shitty apps in my life.
Is this the trend for Winapps today?

Can anyone point me to a Linux prog, PLEASE?

So it sounds to me like they are fundamentally opposed to DRM:
Quote:
Digital rights management (DRM) is an umbrella term that refers to access control technologies used by publishers and copyright holders to limit usage of digital media or devices. It may also refer to restrictions associated with specific instances of digital works or devices.

Of course, that could be taken to the extreme. Gmail, Google Earth, and Street View are already starting to poke some people. I wouldn't be surprised if they had a long-term plan to create a mind-reading data-collector, like this:

Except the Google version would be more stylish, easier to use, and include a search option and a Pig-Latin translation.

Sub_title: still looking
 

thanks Flash and PG.
It is messier than using pdfripimage, from xpdf-utils, which, altho being a console tool is easy to use and works perfectly.

There is a Gnome GUI frontend available (Pdfripimages), but that entails installing most of Gnome. Not worth it for one utility.

still looking.
