I got a new digital photo frame for xmas, and it is big enough that I wanted to use it to display the score sheets while I play the piano. Only problem: music scores frequently come as pdf files, and the frame only handles simple image files…
ImageMagick to the rescue!
I was doing this on windows, so I first had to download Ghostscript (http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/doc/GPL/gpl900.htm). For some reason I already had ImageMagick installed…. (hmm).
Then the magic incantation:
convert -density 200x200 minuet-g.pdf minuet-g.jpg
ImageMagick automatically splits the pdf into individually numbered .jpg files. The -density argument was necessary to get all the lines to show up.
