One of the members on the Fantasy Grounds forum made a PDF image extractor. when you run it it extracts all the images from a PDF into a single folder. You can download it it from the first post in the link.

It still doesn't get transparency right.

The horror of the wrong transparency

The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.

This seems to be working pretty good so far.
http://www.pdfmate.com/pdf-converter-free.html

The instructions for extracting images are at the bottom of this page:

It doesn't appear to be preserving transparency, but at least it's converting the transparency to white instead of black. So far, anyway.

LibreOffice is able to open PDF files, and it allows you to copy and paste images while preserving transparency.

How do these handle Maps from Pathfinder PDF's? I haven't seen a free tool yet that properly extract these (as they are stored on a "button" and have up to 4 copies of the map per button to handle gm/player/grid options) and keep original resolutions with transparencies.

I'll have to check LibreOffice though, haven't tried that yet...

Copying images while maintaining the transparency is glorious! I've been looking for such a solution for a very long time.

The only thing that would be better would be something that automated the process and maintained the transparency.

Thanks for the LibreOffice tip EightBitz!
