Can you please help me in finding Adobe SDK solution that can be used with python on Linux and can be hosted on cloud which can render pdfs (those which are considered as malformed by other open source pdf renderer like poppler but rendered by Adobe Reader on desktop) and convert them to tiff or other image format.

Definitely not the Acrobat SDK. (1) it's for automating Acrobat on Windows and Mac only (2) it's not for server use.

 

Consider: Adobe PDF Library. A C++ library with some other interfaces, written by Adobe, licensed by Datalogics. https://www.datalogics.com/products/pdf-sdks/adobe-pdf-library/

 

Consider: web based Adobe services https://www.adobe.io/apis/documentcloud/dcsdk/

 

But first - what do you mean by "considered malformed"? Do you get an error saying "malformed"? Or do you, for example, get a message saying Acrobat Reader is needed to read the file, in place of the first page? This is important, the solutions mentioned will not help you overcome this, you need to look at your workflow instead.

Thanks for replying.

Do you have any idea that we can use python for pdf to image conversion by using web based Adobe services because I can only see python as a lanuage available in extract API ?

 

For the malformed pdf, we were trying to use an open source pdf renderer to open it but it gave syntax error while Adobe Acrobat is able to render it and when we saved that pdf again by using Adobe Acrobat 

the open source renderer is able to process the PDF.

So, for that use case we are trying to explore Adobe SDKs to render pdfs and convert it to image or if we can even just save it again, i believe that would work.
