Support » Plugin: PDF Image Generator » Clever idea for dealing with PDF files and excellent support

  • I’m migrating from an older script into WordPress on a website where we have to publish one PDF file per day.
    This plugin helped me getting rid of 8 (EIGHT) tedious tasks when publishing a PDF file on my webpages:
    1) Open the PDF file;
    2) Capture a screenshot;
    3) Resize it to thumbnail;
    4) Save the thumbnail file;
    5) Rename the thumbnail file;
    6) Upload the PDF file to server;
    7) Upload the thumbnail file to server;
    8) Insert thumbnail in webpage;
    9) Link thumbnail to PDF file;
    10) Save the page.

    Now I only have 2 (two) tasks to do:
    1) Upload the PDF file to WordPress;
    2) Save the page.

    I only had some issues relating ImageMagick PHP library, as it has a bit of learning curve but that is not the fault of either the author or the plugin itself. If you try this in a XAMPP in a Windows machine environment, be aware that you must learn well about ImageMagick installation or have someone by hand who could help you set it up. In a Linux machine, things seems to be much easier to set up (in my case, it was).

    The author does an excellent job on support. Pretty impressive his effort to reply every single support and suggestions that we can view here in the plugin support forum, so I definitely have to rate this plugin with a high rating of 5 stars.
