NAME
       pdftopng	 - Portable Document Format (PDF) to Portable Network Graphics
       (PNG) converter (version	3.04)

SYNOPSIS
       pdftopng	[options] PDF-file PNG-root

DESCRIPTION
       Pdftopng	converts  Portable  Document  Format  (PDF)  files  to	color,
       grayscale, or monochrome	image files in Portable	Network	Graphics (PNG)
       format.

       Pdftopng	reads the PDF file, PDF-file, and writes one PNG file for each
       page,  PNG-root-nnnnnn.png,  where  nnnnnn is the page number.  If PNG-
       root is '-', the	image is sent to stdout	(this is probably only	useful
       when converting a single	page).

CONFIGURATION FILE
       Pdftopng	reads a	configuration file at startup.	It first tries to find
       the user's private config file, ~/.xpdfrc.  If that doesn't  exist,  it
       looks  for  a  system-wide config file, typically /usr/local/etc/xpdfrc
       (but this location can be changed when pdftopng	is  built).   See  the
       xpdfrc(5) man page for details.

OPTIONS
       Many  of	 the following options can be set with configuration file com-
       mands.  These are listed	in square brackets with	the description	of the
       corresponding command line option.

       -f number
	      Specifies	the first page to convert.

       -l number
	      Specifies	the last page to convert.

       -r number
	      Specifies	the resolution,	in DPI.	 The default is	150 DPI.

       -mono  Generate a monochrome image (instead of a	color image).

       -gray  Generate a grayscale image (instead of a color image).

       -freetype yes | no
	      Enable  or  disable  FreeType  (a	TrueType / Type	1 font raster-
	      izer).  This defaults to "yes".  [config file: enableFreeType]

       -aa yes | no
	      Enable or	disable	font anti-aliasing.  This defaults  to	"yes".
	      [config file: antialias]

       -aaVector yes | no
	      Enable or	disable	vector anti-aliasing.  This defaults to	"yes".
	      [config file: vectorAntialias]

       -opw password
	      Specify the owner	password for the  PDF  file.   Providing  this
	      will bypass all security restrictions.

       -upw password
	      Specify the user password	for the	PDF file.

       -q     Don't print any messages or errors.  [config file: errQuiet]

       -v     Print copyright and version information.

       -h     Print usage information.	(-help and --help are equivalent.)

EXIT CODES
       The Xpdf	tools use the following	exit codes:

       0      No error.

       1      Error opening a PDF file.

       2      Error opening an output file.

       3      Error related to PDF permissions.

       99     Other error.
