I want to show a list of pdf files on a webpage, with a preview image of the first page of the pdf file. How can I create server side an image of a pdf file?

Hi Arnaud,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

At present, we do not have PdfViewer control in ASP.NET. But we can view the pdf document as images in ASP.NET by using ExportAsImage available with PdfViewer.Windows.

Attached a simple sample on this.

On this sample, we have created the thumbnail image for the first page of the document by using PdfViewer.Windows dll and by clicking the thumbnail image, respective Pdf documents get loaded by exporting all the pages of the Pdf document to images.

Please, let us know if you need any further assistance.
