HOW TO OPEN part of pdf in photoshop.

Posted 30 August 2008 - 05:06 AM

i had a file in pdf format in which includes some graphs, pdf file has lot of other information also.

now i want to open a graphs in adobe photoshop , i need to open just only that graph and not the other material of the pdf.

how can i achieve this, the only thing i know is to do print screen and then save a pictues and open in photoshop but i donot want to do this, i feel there must be some what other option for it,

if i import the whole pdf in photoshop it is not look 100% of its orignal, is there any other way to just open a part of pdf in photoshop.

Thanks

You can print screen (but I think you have already said you don't want to do this) or you could try exporting the pdf as an image. Either way you will get the whole file and need to crop it down to size you want.

i go to file > open. click a pdf file. up pops a window that will load every page and say what dpi do you want to import in etc.... and i just select what pages i want.

not sure what else to tell you beyond that.

Im still learning Dreamweaver and and a few days ago I did that with a .PSD file that I opened in photoshop and I used the Rectangular Marquee tool and made a box around the part of the image that I needed (about 30%) of it. Then used Edit>copy, close the origional PSD and then in my case I went back to my Dreamweaver, placed my cursor in my place holder and then Edit>Paste. The Image Preview dialog box opened, i double checked to make sure that jpeg-better Quality was selected from the save settings and mindlessly clicked OK. The save box came up and I saved it with my project, and that was it. I now had a great jpeg in dreamweaver that started at 1.2 MB and ended with a cropped jpeg that was about 12KB.

This should take all of maybe 1 minute if you use photoShop. Took me a shameful amount of time but I'm new with DW. Just use the recmarquee tool and make a box around the part of the image that you need, edit>copy, close the image, open new doc, edit>paste and then you can save however you like in PS. DreamW said I can't use a PSD in DreamW but you can in PS.

If you get any part of any layer in the crop, go back, make a copy of the PSD, flatten the copy and then crop it. It says that it wont work if you get any part of a layer in the crop.

 Open PDF files

Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) is a versatile file format that can represent both vector and bitmap data. It has electronic document search and navigation features. PDF is the primary format for Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Acrobat.

Some PDF files contain a single image, and others contain multiple pages and images. When you open a PDF file in Photoshop, you can choose which pages or images to open and specify rasterization options.

You can also import PDF data using the Place command, the Paste command, and the drag-and-drop feature. The page or image is placed on a separate layer as a Smart Object.

Note: The following procedure is only for opening generic PDF files in Photoshop. You don’t need to specify options in the Import PDF dialog box, when opening Photoshop PDF files.
Do one of the following:
(Photoshop) Choose File > Open.

(Bridge) Select the PDF file and choose File >Open With > Adobe Photoshop. Skip to step 3.

In the Open dialog box, select the name of the file, and click Open.
Under Select in the Import PDF dialog box, select Pages or Images, depending on what elements of the PDF document you want to import.
Click the thumbnails to select the pages or images you want to open. Shift-click to select more than one page or image. The number of selected items appears under the preview window. If you’re importing images, skip to step 8.
Note: Use the Thumbnail Size menu to adjust the thumbnail view in the preview window. The Fit Page option fits one thumbnail in the preview window. A scroll bar appears if there are multiple items.
To give the new document a name, type it in the Name text box. If you’re importing more than one page or image, multiple documents open with the base name followed by a number.
Under Page Options, choose from the Crop To menu to specify what part of the PDF document to include:
Bounding Box Crops to the smallest rectangular region that includes all the text and graphics of the page. This option eliminates extraneous white space and any document elements outside the Trim Box.
Note: Bounding Box will not crop white space that is part of a background created by the source application.
Media Box Crops to the original size of the page.
Crop Box Crops to the clipping region (crop margins) of the PDF file.
Bleed Box Crops to the region specified in the PDF file for accommodating limitations inherent in production processes such as cutting, folding, and trimming.
Trim Box Crops to the region specified for the intended finished size of the page.
Art Box Crops to the region specified in the PDF file for placing the PDF data into another application.
Under Image Size, enter values (if necessary) for Width and Height:
To preserve the aspect ratio of the pages as they’re scaled to fit within the rectangle defined by the Width and Height values, select Constrain Proportions.

To scale the pages exactly to the Width and Height values, deselect Constrain Proportions. Some distortion might occur when the pages are scaled.

When more than one page is selected, the Width and Height text boxes display the maximum width and height values of the selected pages. All pages are rendered at their original size if Constrain Proportions is selected and you don’t change the Width and Height values. Changing the values will scale all pages proportionately as they're rasterized.

Specify the following options under Image Size:
Resolution Sets the resolution for the new document. See also About pixel dimensions and printed image resolution.
Mode Sets the color mode for the new document. See also Color modes.
Bit Depth Sets the bit depth for the new document. See also Bit depth.
The Width and Height values plus the Resolution determine the final pixel dimension of resulting document.

To suppress color profile warnings, select Suppress Warning.
Click OK.

Here is the link.... and it worked for me.
