    Default [Graphix]howto convert pdf>tiff

    OK Hi all
    I put the question in another way...

    how to convert multi paged pdf file in multiple tiff files with desired resolution from command line.

    I hope this is more clear

    i search the net... i should do this first so sorry...
    imagemagic is a converter among raster images...

    convert -density 600 input.pdf output.tiff

    is do my job. it takes too many time. and the output.tiff was almost 1 GB size

    some people suggesting scripts like pdf>ps>png and they said that this way much faster works but I have no try this...

    also I know about PIL library for python and theoretically it should work too...

    I am puzzled why you need a density of 600; that is the reason for the very large file.

    My scanner usually uses 200 or 300 and the output is perfectly OK for normal use.
