Won't extract Image from this pdf

Post by SteveN » Fri Nov 26, 2004 2:30 pm

Hi all,

Can you see why this pdf won't extract the image on page 2. Page 1 is OK

The instruction:

Code: Select all

res = PDFXCp_SaveImageFromPage(pdf, i - 1, j - 1, mySaveFormat, "C:\test.tif")
gives an error
Error [PDFXCPro]: Error while retriving information about the image
trying to save the image on page 2

The document was scanned in Acrobat 5, then opened and saved in Acrobat 6

Acrobat viewer 5 says
"There was a problem reading this document(9)"
when moving to page 2
Adobe Reader 6 views it OK

Sample Acrobat 6 pdf

Hi Steve,

the issue is with the comnpression algorithm used - this image uses JPEG2000 which will not be supported until Version 3.5 which we are preparing for release in December - there will also be a new set of JBIG2 algorithms in this release too.
If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.

Best regards
Tracker Support
