Convert PDF to JPEG using REST API in Python

You can convert PDF to JPEG format programmatically by following the steps given below:

  • Firstly, create an instance of the ConvertApi
  • Next, create an instance of the ConvertSettings
  • Then, set the storage name and pdf file path
  • Set resultant image file format as “jpeg”
  • Create an instance of the PdfLoadOptions
  • Set the pdf file password and load_options
  • Create an instance of the JpegConvertOptions
  • Define the grayscale, from_page, pages_count, quality, rotate_angle and use_pdf etc
  • Set convertOptions to settings
  • Now, provide the output file path
  • After that, create ConvertDocumentRequest with ConvertSettings as argument
  • Finally, call the ConvertApi.convert_document() method with ConvertDocumentRequest to save the converted file

The following example code demonstrate how to convert PDF to JPEG image format using REST API in Python:

Download the Converted PDF

The above code sample will save the converted PDF document on the cloud. It can be downloaded using the following code example:

Convert PDF to PNG File Format in Python using REST API

You can also convert PDF to PNG file format programmatically by following the steps given below:
