Note: ImageEngineExport is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for download
ImageEngine Export exports the images from the source PDF document as Adobe Photoshop files.
The image data is picked out from the structures of the PDF document and converted directly into the Adobe Photoshop format. The advantage of this procedure is that the color space of most PDF images types is not affected. This makes it possible to convert the image data of nearly all images directly to the corresponding Photoshop color space.
Images with the "DeviceN" or "Separation" color space can be treated either as gray scale images or as color images in the alternate color space.
Additionally, it is possible to embed an ICC profile into the Photoshop file if valid profile data is present in the PDF image structure.
What's new in ImageEngineExport
Fixed a problem which caused to leave an empty folder (intended as a temporary depot) instead of the folder with the exported image files.
Fixed a resource conflict which could cause Acrobat 5.05 (under Mac OS 9 as well as Mac OS X) to crash when using the "Safe As…" menu.

To convert pdf to Photoshop files? All it takes is to take a screen shot with Snapz Pro or SnapNDrag. Lots of screenshot applications are free out there. Paying $80 for something which does the same thing as some free software?
That's the way I see it.
