PdfRipImage is a utility to extract images from PDF documents and convert them to a format of your choice. You can choose to extract whole pages or just the images contained in them.
The program is available as a command line shell script.
pdfimages and pdftoppm from the Xpdf package
various pnmto routines from the netpbm package
The script is presented in a compressed archive. Unpack it and move it somewhere in your path. E.g.:
$ tar -xvjf pdfripimage_script*.tar.bz2
$ cd pdfripimage_script/
# cp pdfripimage /usr/local/bin/
The script version can read options from the command line or from a file called .pdfripimage in your HOME directory.
The .pdfripimage file can be created by copying the example.conf file from the installation archive. Reading this file will tell you all the options to over-ride the default values.
The format is quite simple, and the same options can be passed from the command line e.g.:
$ pdfripimage my.pdf FORMAT=TIFF TIFF_COMPRESSION=LZW
