What is "Gemini"?
Gemini quickly converts text & images in PDF documents into other formats. Whether you wish to post a user manual on the internet, an article from a newspaper, a financial report or entire book, Gemini saves you time and effort.
What can it do?
Gemini can export the text within a PDF in a variety of formats including HTML, RTF & plain text. It supports all standards of PDF plus password protected documents .
As well as text formats, Gemini can export photos and graphics as JPEG, EPS, TIFF, PNG and BMP. It can convert embedded images, render artwork or entire documents at a range of sizes, resolutions and colour depths.
The software also offers a host of advanced features and customisation making it one of the oldest and most comprehensive PDF converters available for Macintosh or Windows PCs.

Hyperlinks & Bookmarks
Gemini will preserve hyper-text links from the original PDF document. These can be links to pages, to other documents or to the world wide web.
If your document has bookmarks Gemini can output them as hyper-links. In HTML, it can present the bookmarks side by side with the pages using frames for easier navigation.
Even if your document does not have any bookmarks, Gemini will create a set of bookmarks by looking at titles and headings throughout the document - a real time saver when converting long documents.
Using the powerful batch-export feature for example, its a simple task to generate thumbnails for 100's of documents in one operation or to convert a folder full of PDFs into multi-page TIFFs or HTML.
Some PDFs are poorly constructed with bad font encodings making it near impossible to export the contents correctly. Gemini offers a powerful and flexible solution to this problem with its Character Map facility.
Using the Character Map* you can map specific characters in the document to any Unicode character. You can browse all the character shapes stored in each font within the document and change any or all of the mappings with ease.
All your mappings are remembered so that next time you want to extract from the document or another like it, you won't have to waste time making tedious manual corrections.
Convert Images to EPS Retaining Clipping Masks
Images can be output as Photoshop compatible EPS together with any clipping path used in the PDF. The output is fully compatible with Photoshop, Quark XPress and Adobe InDesign and by including complex clipping paths, saves you time and effort in re-masking.
If your PDFs contain OPI information, Gemini can export the images with their original names - the names used for the image files at the time the PDF was created. You can also interrogate individual images by right-clicking the mouse button whilst it is over an image.
Output Via Article Threads
Mark up your documents with article threads and Gemini will output them on an article-by-article basis so you don't have to spend time splitting up pages of text.
It quickly and accurately combines fragments of articles split across pages, reflowing the text complete with any images and tables as a single entity. The software will also produce a list of hyperlinks taking to each article in turn.
