Android, how to get PDF thumbnail images in application?

Question:I am using some application on Android to read PDF. I would like to take thumbnail images of all the pages in that PDF to my application. Any suggestion on this or any other API? Is there any solution on VeryPDF?

Answer: When you need to generate PDF thumbnail by cloud API, maybe you can try to convert PDF to image and then generate thumbnail from image files. Now VeryPDF does not have cloud based API which can help you generate PDF thumbnail  directly. You can use VeryPDF PDF to Image Converter Cloud API to convert PDF to image first and then generate PDF thumbnail by VeryPDF Image Format Converter Cloud API. Please check more information of those software on homepage, in the following part, I will show you how to use those cloud based API.
