Maybe a different forum might help you, this is a PHP forum :)

I don't know offhand if the usual PDF reader Acrobat can do what you want to do, but one alternative possibilitiy is to get the part of the pdf document that contains the graphics you wish to copy showing on your screen completely. Then use the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard. Then open up a suitable image program, such as Photoshop or Irfanview and paste the screen dump into the application as a new image. Then you can use the facilities of the image program to crop the image as you like, and to save it as a jpg file.

This of course is all manual work, and I do not think you can automate this method if you have lots and lots of images you want to work with.

I agree with coolsti
Maybe you need to post this somewhere else. But if you really want to do this with PHP then I'll have to say that the only way to edit images in PHP is GD library which I don't think is capable of editing PDF.
