PDFjam is a small collection of shell scripts that provide a simple interface to some of the functionality of the pdfpages package for pdfLaTeX. Facilities include n-up imposition, page rotation, reflection and trimming, selection of pages, and many more. PDFjam depends on a working installation of (pdf)LaTeX, complete with the pdfpages package. For Mac OS X, some example applications (droplets) are provided for drag-and-drop access.
a2ping is a Unix command line utility that converts many raster image and vector graphics formats to EPS or PDF and other page description formats. Accepted input file formats are: PS (PostScript), EPS, PDF, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, PNM, BMP, GIF, LBM, XPM, PCX, and TGA. Accepted output formats are: EPS, PCL5, PDF, PDF1, PBM, PGM, PPM, PS, markedEPS, markedPS, PNG, XWD, BMP, TIFF, JPEG, GIF, and XPM. a2ping delegates the low-level work to Ghostscript (GS), pdftops, and sam2p. Only the first page of PDF and PS files are converted.
extendedPDF is an OpenOffice.org macro that converts an OpenOffice document into a PDF document. The output includes the original document's headings as PDF bookmarks, and includes the original hyperlinks as PDF hyperlinks. Document meta-information (such as title, author, and keywords) is also added.
ppmcaption adds text to PPM, PGM, or PBM images. Multiple blocks of text can be placed on the image, with varying fonts, font sizes, colors, transparency, and alignment. Any BDF font file can be used for the text. The advantage of using this program instead of a pipeline of PBM filters is that ppmcaption is much faster and easier to use.
psbind examines the margins in a PostScript document and rearranges the pages to fit them onto paper efficiently. It outputs a transformed PostScript document. Because psbind detects the margins in its input automatically, it is particularly useful on documents with large or unbalanced margins.
