This tutorial explains how to automatically extract attachments from PDF. I have used “Bytescout PDF Multitool” software to make it possible. This software has a simple feature to automatically find attachments in PDF file and extract attachments from PDF. You can save extracted attachments to your hard drive.
Whether there are Word files, Text files, or Images available in the PDF as attachments, it will help to fetch them and save to the destination. One PDF at a time can be added to find and extract attachments.
We have also covered many PDF image extractor, PDF converter, PDF text extractor, and other tools, but none of these tools are capable of extracting attachments from a PDF file. So, whenever you are in a situation that you need to get the attachments from PDF, this would be the perfect software to use. The software supports multipage and single page PDFs.
How To Automatically Extract Attachments from PDF?
Follow these steps:
Step 1: Get the setup file of this software and install it.
Step 2: Open the UI and add the PDF file that contains attachments.
Step 3: Find the Attachments option that is available under Text and data subcategory in the left sidebar and click it. It will immediately open a small window and show you the total number of attachments available in your PDF file.
Step 4: Press the Go button and then you will be able to save the attachments to a folder in any location on your PC.
After that, you can open the folder to access and view the attachments.
This software has many other interesting features that you can try. It can help you:
- Extract embedded media from PDF.
- Automatically Extract Tables from PDF.
- Convert PDF to image files, etc.
I really like the simplicity of this software. Just a couple of mouse clicks were all that I had to do and attachments were extracted from PDF files. The software can’t process PDF files in bulk, but it is still a very good option to fetch all the attachments available in a multipage or single page PDF file at a time.
