I am just looking for a way of converting a pdf file (just one page) scanned from my personal scanner( which scans directly to pdf on my computer) automatically in Matlab in order to compare the converted file (pdf to image) to another image? The pdf will have no images, only text and small rectangles. I saw some stuff by using ghostscript but it is a dead end for me. I welcome any other ways beside converting the pdf in order to do the job.
Thanking you advance...

Hi,Vic. Have you worked it out? As for me, I have never tried to convert a pdf file (just one page) scanned from personal scanner( which scans directly to pdf on my computer) automatically in Matlab in order to compare the converted file (pdf to image) to another image. But I have another question for you. I wonder have you ever tried to convert PDF to other image files before? I am testing the related PDF to JPG converting, PDF to PNG converting, and PDF to BMP converting programs these days. Do you have experience about it? Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Best regards, Arron
