Problem converting PDF to GIF

Post by SteffenR » 2007-02-09T05:59:52-07:00

Hi there..
I have a really strange problem with converting a PDF-File to a GIF Image or to other Image Formats.
The outputted image is much bigger (dimensions) than the input PDF File..

Here you find the used PDF and the outputted GIF File..

I tried the following commands:

Code: Select all

convert problem.pdf output.gif
and

Code: Select all

convert problem.pdf -trim output.gif
Imagemagick-Version:
ImageMagick 6.0.6 11/15/06 Q16

Thx in advance for your help,
SteffenR

Suggest that you specify the size of the output you want so the code will know.

sry.. i already did..
The output is the same - only resized by the given size via convert -resize 200x150 eg..

Anybody another tip to solve this problem ?

Thx..

You need:

Code: Select all

convert problem.pdf -trim +repage output.gif
The original image actually contains three signatures plus some printing, including a logo, on a transparent background.
