Multiple crops of a single page

Post by abonsey » Wed Feb 10, 2016 8:36 am

I hope somebody can help.
There are multi page PDFs that I need to make multiple crops of each page (they contain images). The crops will be the same position and number on each page.
What's the best way to automate this with switch?

I would use PitStop Server and Switch to do that.

Make a PitStop Action of the type "Resize crop box" for each cropping that needs to be done. In the action you define x and y coordinates for lower left and upper right corners of the cropping. Maybe add a "Set media box to crop box size" at the end of each action.

In Switch make a folder for the incoming PDF's. From this folder make a connection to as many folders as you have made different cropping-actions (this will make copies of the original PDF). Connect each of these folders to a PitStop Server configurator and have each of these configurators run one of the clipping actions.

If I understood your question correctly, that should be it.
