Unable to convert pdf to image using pdf2image

See original GitHub issue

def convert(files): pages = convert_from_path(files, 500) out_file="ConvertedToImage.jpg" for page in pages:, 'JPEG') return out_file

Above is the code snippet of the function. I am getting a following error while converting the pdf to image: Traceback (most recent call last): File “C:\Users\DEll\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36\lib\site-packages\pdf2image\”, line 190, in _page_count return int(’Pages:\s+(\d+)', out.decode(“utf8”, “ignore”)).group(1)) AttributeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘group’

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last): File “”, line 11, in <module> divide.send(in_file) File “C:\Users\DEll\Downloads\Interns Py\”, line 123, in send toIm=convert(in_file) File “C:\Users\DEll\Downloads\Interns Py\”, line 86, in convert pages = convert_from_path(files, 500) File “C:\Users\DEll\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36\lib\site-packages\pdf2image\”, line 46, in convert_from_path page_count = _page_count(pdf_path, userpw) File “C:\Users\DEll\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36\lib\site-packages\pdf2image\”, line 192, in _page_count raise PDFPageCountError(‘Unable to get page count. %s’ % err.decode(“utf8”, “ignore”)) pdf2image.exceptions.PDFPageCountError: Unable to get page count. I/O Error: Couldn’t open file ‘pdfinfo’: No error.

I got insight from

Below is my code for doing something similar and made use of convert_from_bytes() instead of convert_from_path() , then fed the full file path to the function using r’string’ for raw string and a forward slash . Taking those into consideration I eliminated some errors like :

FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘\Desktop\companyprofile.pdf’ UnicodeDecodeError: ‘charmap’ codec can’t decode byte 0x8d in position 1159: character maps to <undefined> pdf2image.exceptions.PDFPageCountError: Unable to get page count. I/O Error: Couldn’t open file ‘companyprofile.pdf’: No error.

from pdf2image import convert_from_path,convert_from_bytes from pdf2image.exceptions import ( PDFInfoNotInstalledError, PDFPageCountError, PDFSyntaxError )

images = convert_from_bytes(open(r’/Users/Robotnic/Desktop/companyprofile.pdf’,‘rb’).read())

for i, image in enumerate(images): fname = “image” + str(i) + “.png”, “PNG”)

I think you should be able to relate the code to yours
