NAME
       thumbpdf - generate thumbnail images for a PDF file created with pdftex


SYNOPSIS
       thumbpdf [ OPTION... ]  PDF_FILE


DESCRIPTION
       thumbpdf  is  used to create thumbnail images of individual pages within a PDF (Portable Document Format) docu-
       ment.


USAGE
       First run pdftex(1) on your document to create a PDF file.  Then run thumbpdf to generate the thumbnails, a PDF
       file containing the thumbnails, and a pdfTeX file to include the thumbnails in the PDF file.  Finally, run pdf-
       tex(1) on your file again to create the final PDF file.

       thumbpdf calls gs(1) to generate PNG images of the pages within PDF_FILE, and pdftex(1) to create  a  PDF  file
       containing the thumbnail images.
