Did you try pdftoppm, this extracts to ppm image format, which can then 
be converted to other image formats as needed.  If it is a single image 
you need, I'd try gimp's PDF import and then manually edit/crop/save as 
you need.
btw, no pdf was attached when your message was received.

hi folks,

first, just want to reinforce Christian on today's event at St.
Anthony's -- it was a lot of fun and i think for at least some people
the FOSS element played a significant role.

now for my stupid question:  i am trying to extract some images from
stupid pdf from, of all places, marthat stewart living.  i don't know
that much about pdf but the images look to be svgish -- all lines and
fills, very simple really.  anyway, tried pdfimages from (in ubuntu) the
xpf-utils package, and it fails silently to extract any images from this
particular pdf (works fine on other files though).  so i guess i'm
looking at some kind of manual extraction or something...

<JS note="snipped file, too big for list consumption">
anyway, the
file in question is hopefully attached to this message -- i'd put it on
the web somewhere but my server's back in toronto and appears to be
suffering from disk failure...
</JS note="if SF-LUGgers can point matt to a source, do so to his email>

thanks for any help you can give,
