xx.pdf 0x0x0 : not a picture

Post by David999 »

Hi,

First time using this and ran into a problem right away. Here's what I did:

I'm on a Mac, scanned some student tests at 300dpi, using a Fuji Xerox scanner to a pdf file. Followed these instructions:

http://www.formscanner.org/quickstart-guide/convert-pdf

and got the "xx.pdf 0x0x0 : not a picture" result.

What went wrong? Appreciate any help. Thanks.

No. Do I need it?

Hello forum!

I've run into the same issue!

I'm using Sierra 10.2, have XNConvert (64 bit) installed, and Ghostscript 9.21 installed. I've clicked to "ignore read errors". I still get the "not a picture" error when trying to convert PDFs.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Merci Pierre! Aside from using the Ghostscript install package (which I found here http://pages.uoregon.edu/koch/), how would I ensure it is written in my PATH? Thanks!
