2. SYNOPSIS

thumbpdf [ OPTION... ] PDF_FILE

3. DESCRIPTION

thumbpdf is used to create thumbnail images of individual pages within a PDF (Portable Document Format) document.

4. USAGE

First run pdftex(1) on your document to create a PDF file. Then run thumbpdf to generate the thumbnails, a PDF file containing the thumbnails, and a pdfTeX file to include the thumbnails in the PDF file. Finally, run pdftex(1) on your file again to create the final PDF file.
