  6. PyPDF2: pip install PyPDF2

#Usage

Just got to terminal and run: python manage.py syncdb and python manage.py runserver and be happy.

In you views.py when the FileField has been saved you just neet to call <your_entity>.convert_to_png() or <your_entity>.convert_to_jpg(). If you need to resize the images just pass the width and height parameters like: <your_entity>.convert_to_png(200, 400). This call will create the images 200x400px.
