Create thumbnail image (jpg/png) of PDF file using Python

Is there any way to do this directly within python?

If not is there any other good way to achieve it?

Thanks in advance for any help!

I have used ghostscript from within python to do this sort of thing. You may get
problems if the fonts are too exotic, but otherwise it works quite well. If that
sounds OK I can send you a script that I use.

Take a look at PIL -- http://www.pythonware.com/products/pil/. Among
other things, it allows you to easily create thumbnails.

I think I've solved this problem using a piece of software called
imageMagick. Good stuff so it is.
