pdfConvertPageToDeviceNImage

Convert a page to a DeviceN image.
int pdfConvertPageToDeviceNImage(PDFHandle pdf, int page, double dpi)
This function rasterizes a page in DeviceN mode, i.e., with separate color channels for each process color (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black), and for each custom (a.k.a., spot) color.

After calling pdfConvertPageToDeviceNImage:

Finally, call pdfClearDeviceNImage to release the memory used by pdfConvertPageToDeviceNImage.

To enable an overprint preview rasterization, call pdfSetConfig to set the overprintPreview parameter before calling pdfConvertPageToDeviceNImage:

pdfSetConfig("overprintPreview yes");
