How to batch converting PDF files to TIFF files with wildcard? Run pdf2img.exe with wildcard for batch conversion.

Hello,

I purchased your PDF to Image program today and have some questions.

The attached is what I need to process. You can see that I have ~1100 folders with an average of 150 PDFs in each. Executing this .bat file on the same server where the files are located is estimated to run 130+ hours to process 150K+ PDFs. Each PDF has a single page and standard resolutions. Server is a Hyper-V VM (Xeon X5460 3.16 GHz (2 Processors); 64 GB RAM; RAID-10 array with plenty of disk space free and drive highly defragged.

1. Is there a more efficient way to do this? .bat file appears to have to load your .exe each time. Is there a wild card variant I could use to process all PDFs in a single folder and output to another folder of choice?

2. In the Windows GUI, is there a way to specify folders not just files? And will the GUI run faster than the command line?

Thank you for your reply but it seems you have not answered my two questions.
Please re-read my original post and answer the following:

1. Is there a more efficient way to do this? .bat file appears to have to load your .exe each time. Is there a wild card variant I could use to process all PDFs in a single folder and output to another folder of choice?

2. In the Windows GUI, is there a way to specify folders not just files? And will the GUI run faster than the command line?

>>1. Is there a more efficient way to do this? .bat file appears to have to load your .exe each time. Is there a wild card variant I could use to process all PDFs in a single folder and output to another folder of choice?

You can simple run following command line to convert all PDF files in D:\temp folder to TIFF files, the output TIFF files will be placed to D:\out folder,

for %F in (D:\temp\*.pdf) pdf2img.exe -r 300 -compress 4 -mono "%F" "D:\out\%~nF.tif"

You can also convert all PDF files in D:\temp folder and subfolders to TIFF files at one time, place output TIFF files to D:\out folder,

for /r D:\temp %F in (*.pdf) do pdf2img.exe -r 300 -compress 4 -mono "%F" "D:\out\%~nF.tif"

Above two command lines can be used easily, please to try.

>>2. In the Windows GUI, is there a way to specify folders not just files? And will the GUI run faster than the command line?

GUI application hasn't a way to add a folder yet, we are planning add this function in the future releases.

No, the command line version is work faster than GUI version, you can write this command line into a .bat file, you can simple double click to run it when you need to do the conversion in the future.

But please notice a matter, when you write this command line into .bat file, you need use %% to instead of % in the command line, e.g.,

for %%F in (D:\temp\*.pdf) pdf2img.exe -r 300 -compress 4 -mono "%%F" "D:\out\%%~nF.tif"

for /r D:\temp %%F in (*.pdf) do pdf2img.exe -r 300 -compress 4 -mono "%%F" "D:\out\%%~nF.tif"

学校 Please refer to some more command line examples for "for" command at below,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
for %F in (D:\temp\*.pdf) do echo "%F" "%~nF.pdf"
for %F in (D:\temp\*.pdf) do echo "%F" "%~dpnF.pdf"
for %F in (D:\temp\*.pdf) do echo "%F" "C:\test\%~nF.xls"
for /d %F in (d:\temp\*.*) do echo "%F"
for /r D:\temp %F in (*.pcl) do echo "%F" "%~dpnF.pdf"
for /r D:\temp %F in (*.zip) do echo "%F" "%~dpnF.pdf"
for /r D:\temp %F in (*.pdf) do echo "%F" "%~dpnF.pdf"
for /r D:\temp %F in (*.pdf) do echo "%F" "C:\test\%~nF.pdf"
for %F in (D:\temp\20*.doc) do "D:\Program Files (x86)\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe"  -f 9 -i "%F" -o "X:\INVOICES\%~nF.pdf"

//You can use following one command line to batch convert all of your files at one time easily,

#1: Convert all DOC files to PDF files in D:\temp folder,

for %F in (D:\temp\*.doc) do "C:\VeryPDF\doc2any.exe" "%F" "%~dpnF.pdf"

#2: Convert all DOC files to PDF files in D:\temp folder and sub-folders (recursion),

for /r D:\temp %F in (*.doc) do "C:\VeryPDF\doc2any.exe" "%F" "%~dpnF.pdf"

//You can do same thing in .bat file, but you need use "%%" to instead of "%" in .bat file,

for %%F in ("D:\temp\*.pdf") do "C:\VeryPDF\pdftools.exe" "%%F" "%%~nF.pdf"

for %%F in ("%CD%\*.pdf") do echo "%%F" "%%~nF.pdf"

#1: Process all PDF files in D:\temp folder,

for %F in (D:\temp\*.pdf) do pdfrename.exe -find "invoice" "%F"

#2: Process all PDF files in D:\temp folder and sub-folders (recursion),

for /r D:\temp %F in (*.pdf) do pdfrename.exe -find "invoice" "%F"

You need use %% to replace % in .bat file, for example,

for /r %CD% %%F in (*.doc;*.xls;*.ppt) do "C:\Program Files\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe" -i "%%F" -o "%%F-%%02d.jpg" -r 43x50 -g 1-2 -E 0 -s killoffice=1

for %%F in (%cd%\*.htm) do html2pdf.exe "%%F" "%%~dpnF.pdf" "paperType=6,Overwrite=yes,margin_top=20,margin_bottom=10,margin_right=1,margin_left=10"

One Response to How to batch converting PDF files to TIFF files with wildcard? Run pdf2img.exe with wildcard for batch conversion.

  1. VeryPDF says:

    I have been testing a version of your converter. Looks really really fantastic.

    1) Can you tell me if it is possible to convert folders?

    pdf2img.exe C:\test\ C:\test\

    2) Can you tell me if it is possible to convert folders specify wild cards with PDF filenames for example:
    pdf2img.exe C:\*.pdf C:\*.tif

    3) Is it possible to recursively convert sub directories?
    i.e. a parent folder and all its subdirectories.
    c:\pdf2img.exe C:\test\ C:\test\ /all subfolders too...
