With The Tool You Get These Features

This tool is designed in such a way that it gives you the freedom to extract and export images from PDF as you want. Let’s have a look at all of its features:
Under “Apply Attachment Filters” you get two filters to export attached images from the PDF files or a folder:

A. Extract Attachments Upto (Size): This clearly indicates the size of the attached image or graphic file that you need to export. There are two textboxes one for specifying the size number and the other is for specifying the unit of size (MB or KB).

B. File Type: Using this filter, you can specify which type of attached images you want to include or exclude.

Under “Apply Image Settings” you have the option to export embedded or inline images as PDF files. Further, you can select either “create individual PDF” or “create single PDF”.

Extra Features to Make Exporting Images From The PDF File More Easy For You:

1. If your PDF document has security like an opening password, the software will prompt you to provide the password of the PDF file. These passwords will not be saved in the tool. Your PDF is completely safe with this utility.
