Two of the more useful Acrobat plug-ins on the market are Acronnects ImageEngine and ImagineEngine Export tools.
ImageEngine enables users to be all-knowing when it comes to specific data in regard to existing images within source PDF files.
Acronnect has now released updated versions of the PDF tools, ImageEngine 1.2.0 and ImageEngine Export 1.1.4, which include compatibility with Adobe Acrobat 7.0.
ImageEngine is an Acrobat plug-in that provides capabilities for users to gather information about a source PDF document, and export and render the images within that document as well.
ImageEngine Export is an Acrobat plug-in that exports the image data from the source PDF document and converts it directly into Adobe Photoshop format.
Utilizing either of these plug-ins does not change the original PDF document in any way.
The ImageEngine 1.2.0 upgrade also includes a new Render PDF function noted by Ilmenau, Germany-based Acronnect Software in a release.
This function combines the already existing import function with the render pages function and converts the source PDF document into an image-based PDF, according to the company. The Render PDF function applies the render method of the Adobe Acrobat application to gather images from the source PDF document and those images are then collected in a new PDF document.
Specific functions available in the upgrade include the inspect function, extract, export, render, render PDF and render pages function, render selection, and import images function.
