How to convert a PDF to an image

2 minuti di lettura
To make a preview image of a PDF document I do use PDFBox that is an Apache library made to work with PDF.

You can install the library manually or use the Maven repository:


To convert the PDF, here it is the code:

PDDocument doc = PDDocument.load("myFile.pdf");
PDPage firstPage = (PDPage) doc.getDocumentCatalog().getAllPages().get(0);
BufferedImage bufferedImage = firstPage.convertToImage();

You can even load the PDF document by a Stream or a Url. You have the first page preview of your PDF file in the BufferdImage variable. Then you can save it into the preferred extension.
