thumbpdf — generate thumbnail images for a PDF file created with pdftex

Synopsis

thumbpdf [ OPTION... ] PDF_FILE

Description

thumbpdf is used to create thumbnail images of individual pages within a PDF (Portable Document Format) document.

Usage

First run pdftex(1) on your document to create a PDF file. Then run thumbpdf to generate the thumbnails, a PDF file containing the thumbnails, and a pdfTeX file to include the thumbnails in the PDF file. Finally, run pdftex(1) on your file again to create the final PDF file.

thumbpdf calls gs(1) to generate PNG images of the pages within PDF_FILE, and pdftex(1) to create a PDF file containing the thumbnail images.
