Extract Images Node

The Extract Images node searches for any image stored in a PDF document and then extracts it using the specified settings. Each image is extracted separately and sent as individual messages in the flow.


General Settings

Format - The image format used when extracting the images from the PDF

TIFF - Lossless compression does not reduce quality

GIF - Lossless compression format for image files that does not reduce quality

Color documents (and color compression)

    • Lowest acceptable resolution = 150 DPI
    • Conventional resolution = 200 DPI
