Hey guys,
I'm going crazy here. I'm hoping some of you have dealt with this in the past. I'm looking for a decent PDF to PNG(or JPEG) rasterizer that runs on Linux. I'm not too concerned about the licensing. Any product would be ideal.

Thanks in advanced,
Tyler

You could first render the PDF into a Java component: https://pdf-renderer.dev.java.net/

And then render that Java component into a BufferedImage, which you can scale and save to a JPEG or PNG file (the javax.imageio.ImageIO class can handle the last part).

The magick image-converter of choice is - of course - convert from the Image-Magick package, most probably available for your preferred linux flavour.

produces XY-0.png .... XY-27.png for me for a 27 pages PDF.

Correction: 28 pages.
