NAME

       thumbpdf - generate thumbnail images for a PDF file created with pdftex



SYNOPSIS

       thumbpdf [ OPTION... ]  PDF_FILE



DESCRIPTION

       thumbpdf is used to create thumbnail images of individual pages  within
       a PDF (Portable Document Format) document.



USAGE

       First  run  pdftex(1)  on your document to create a PDF file.  Then run
       thumbpdf to generate the thumbnails, a PDF file containing  the  thumb-
       nails,  and  a  pdfTeX  file to include the thumbnails in the PDF file.
       Finally, run pdftex(1) on your file again to create the final PDF file.

       thumbpdf  calls  gs(1)  to  generate  PNG  images  of  the pages within
       PDF_FILE, and pdftex(1) to create a PDF file containing  the  thumbnail
       images.
