    Yes I can google it, but I thought maybe someone knows a name of a good reliable one, so I am not wasting my time trying out shitty ones

    working on a e-commerce site for a client, his dropshipper only has their catalog in pdf files for people and do not have the images on a disk to use

    I have close to 10,000 images to pull and I don't want to have to individually copy and paste them into photoshop and save them

    Ouch.. I don't like your luck.

    Does PDFtoHTML convert embedded images into standalone images in the HTML output? Might be worth looking into. I know it pulls the text layers out into readable text (we use it to search PDFs in our datastore)
