  • 1.  Converting PDF to PNG and cropping the PNG file

    Posted 04-07-2022 03:40
    Hi, all.

    Is there any free Business Objects provided by Blue Prism that can convert the PDF file to PNG file and/or cropping the PNG file?

    or

    Anyone knows any other ways to do that?



    Best regards

    Hi HongJoo,

    You can use the Pdf2Png nuget from https://www.nuget.org/packages/Pdf2Png/ in a code stage to do the conversion. There is also a blog post about using Nuget with Blue Prism.

    However it can not convert those PDF which uses latest Adobe PDF structure after Acrobat 6 version.

    PDFs which you can not merge/manipulate using open source libraries won't work with this PDF to PNG solution is my best assumption.

    Other PDFs are easily getting converted to PNG using this solution.

    Thanks @Shashank Kumar for sharing this knowledge base here.

    Thanks for sharing the limitations. On other note, you can post the asset on DX if you want to so the community can make use of it.

    Oh that sound great. Can you help me with the steps how can an individual user post asset on DX and what is the procedure? I was under impression that only organizations are allowed and not individuals.

    If someone stumbles upon the below error while configuring this file conversion

    then rename your code stage to something different than what was shown in the above images and it will work.

    Hi Tejas - I am seeing the below error when i run the code:

    "Access to gsdll32.dll' is denied". Any inputs on how to resolve this.? Is this simply a permission/access issue? 

    Thanks!

    Maneesh, 

    Are write and read permissions enabled on the dll file? Also check that there is no instance consuming the dll.

    Regards,
