How to convert any Document File into PNG Array in Python

With today’s setup, you will be able to easily convert a nice range of document file types into arrays of PNG images. As an added bonus, the entire process only takes a handful of minutes. It begins with pip install:

pip install cloudmersive-convert-api-client

And now that we have our client, we can formulate our function call. Here’s a general idea of how that can be structured:

from __future__ import print_functionimport timeimport cloudmersive_convert_api_clientfrom cloudmersive_convert_api_client.rest import ApiExceptionfrom pprint import pprint# Configure API key authorization: Apikeyconfiguration = cloudmersive_convert_api_client.Configuration()configuration.api_key['Apikey'] = 'YOUR_API_KEY'# Uncomment below to setup prefix (e.g. Bearer) for API key, if needed# configuration.api_key_prefix['Apikey'] = 'Bearer'# create an instance of the API classapi_instance = cloudmersive_convert_api_client.ConvertDocumentApi(cloudmersive_convert_api_client.ApiClient(configuration))input_file = '/path/to/file' # file | Input file to perform the operation on.try:# Convert Document to PNG arrayapi_response = api_instance.convert_document_autodetect_to_png_array(input_file)pprint(api_response)except ApiException as e:print("Exception when calling ConvertDocumentApi->convert_document_autodetect_to_png_array: %s\n" % e)

This function will automatically detect the format of your input file, and then perform the necessary steps to convert it into PNG image form, with one image for each page.
