    Do you want to create the thumbnail before or after the file is uploaded to the server?

This class can convert PDF documents to images. This way you can extract images of any page of a PDF document.

It requires the GhostScript program to be installed because it is the program that renders PDF pages as images.

If you need a solution that does not require GhostScript, just say so, so this request can become featured, as there is no other package that can do that for now, so maybe somebody can submit an alternative solution.

    GhostScript is an application that exists for Linux, Windows and other platforms. If your hosting is under Linux, you need to install the Linux version. You may need to have at least a VPS server to be able to install applications if your hosting company does not provide them.
