Hi! I’m trying out Retrobatch, and it looks good so far, but I’m not sure whether I’m using it correctly.
I have a folder full of PDFs and would like to export the first page of each as a JPG with a filename based on the PDF. For instance,
hGWells_theWarOfTheWorlds.pdf => cover_hGWells_theWarOfTheWorlds.jpg
newWcmsUserManual.pdf => cover_newWcmsUserManual.jpg
etc. I have a simple web script that builds a list of links to PDFs in a directory, and it would be nice to add cover images to the list.
I tried using Retrobatch by simply creating two nodes: Read Folder and Write Images and that mostly seems to work. However, one of my sample PDFs ends up generating a JPG from the lower-left corner of page 2 rather than the entirety of page 1. I saw there’s a Layer & Page Splitter node, but I didn’t see any way to limit it to the first page. Have I overlooked something?
