Code Sample for PDF Images Extraction

The code below was taken from the command line sample available for download in the PDF Images Extractor archive. In this sample an instance of the PdfImgExtract class is constructed and the images extractor object properties are set based on the command line arguments. Then the ExtractImages method is called to extract the images from the source PDF document to disk. The ImageExtractedEvent handler will simply display a brief information about the extracted image like the PDF page number from where the image was extracted and the extracted image size in pixels.
        public void PdfImgExtractSample()
            // create pdf images extractor object
            PdfImgExtract pdfImgExtractor = new PdfImgExtract();

            // set converter options
            pdfImgExtractor.UserPassword = userPassword; //PDF open password
            pdfImgExtractor.ExtractImageFormat = imgFormat; // output image format
            pdfImgExtractor.StartPageNumber = 1; //extract starting from first page
            pdfImgExtractor.EndPageNumber = 0; //extract from all pages
            pdfImgExtractor.ExtractPath = "."; //extract to working directory
            pdfImgExtractor.ExtractPrefix = "pdfimage_"; //image name prefix

            // notify when a new image was extracted
            pdfImgExtractor.ImageExtractedEvent += 
                new ImageExtractedEventHandler(pdfImgExtractor_ImageExtractedEvent);

            pdfImgExtractor.ExtractImages(srcPdfFile, true);

        /// <summary>
        /// ImageExtractedEvent handler called each time a new image is extracted
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="args">The event handler argument</param>
        static void pdfImgExtractor_ImageExtractedEvent(ImageExtractedEventArgs args)
            System.Drawing.Bitmap extractedBitmap = args.ExtractedBitmap;
            int pageNumber = args.PageNumber;
            Console.WriteLine(String.Format("Page {0} - extracted image size:
                pageNumber, extractedBitmap.Width, extractedBitmap.Height));
