Generate Thumbnail of Pdf in Android

I want to generate the image(thumbnail) from pdf file just like done by WhatsApp as shown below
WhatsApp

I have tried


  1. PDFBox (https://github.com/TomRoush/PdfBox-Android)

  2. Tika (compile 'org.apache.tika:tika-parsers:1.11')

  3. AndroidPdfViewer (https://github.com/barteksc/AndroidPdfViewer)



and still unable to find a way to generate image from pdf.




PDFBox:

There is a github issue that deals with this problem (https://github.com/TomRoush/PdfBox-Android/issues/3) but this is still unresolved.

Note: I am successfully able to extract image from PDF using PDFBOX




AndroidPdfViewer:

Answer

Use PdfiumAndroid as mentioned by barteksc here...

Sample Code for generating pdf thumb

//PdfiumAndroid (https://github.com/barteksc/PdfiumAndroid)
//https://github.com/barteksc/AndroidPdfViewer/issues/49
void generateImageFromPdf(Uri pdfUri) {
    int pageNumber = 0;
    PdfiumCore pdfiumCore = new PdfiumCore(this);
    try {
        //http://www.programcreek.com/java-api-examples/index.php?api=android.os.ParcelFileDescriptor
        ParcelFileDescriptor fd = getContentResolver().openFileDescriptor(pdfUri, "r");
        PdfDocument pdfDocument = pdfiumCore.newDocument(fd);
        pdfiumCore.openPage(pdfDocument, pageNumber);
        int width = pdfiumCore.getPageWidthPoint(pdfDocument, pageNumber);
        int height = pdfiumCore.getPageHeightPoint(pdfDocument, pageNumber);
        Bitmap bmp = Bitmap.createBitmap(width, height, Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888);
        pdfiumCore.renderPageBitmap(pdfDocument, bmp, pageNumber, 0, 0, width, height);
        saveImage(bmp);
        pdfiumCore.closeDocument(pdfDocument); // important!
    } catch(Exception e) {
        //todo with exception
    }
}

public final static String FOLDER = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory() + "/PDF";
private void saveImage(Bitmap bmp) {
    FileOutputStream out = null;
    try {
        File folder = new File(FOLDER);
        if(!folder.exists())
            folder.mkdirs();
        File file = new File(folder, "PDF.png");
        out = new FileOutputStream(file);
        bmp.compress(Bitmap.CompressFormat.PNG, 100, out); // bmp is your Bitmap instance
    } catch (Exception e) {
        //todo with exception
    } finally {
        try {
            if (out != null)
                out.close();
        } catch (Exception e) {
            //todo with exception
        }
    }
}

Update:

Include library in build.gradle

compile 'com.github.barteksc:pdfium-android:1.4.0'

For generating Image of any PDF Page:

Call the method generateImageFromPdf(uri) by passing any PDF uri that is stored in your storage.

The method will generate the PDF.png in PDF folder of your storage.
