Step 2: Install Syncfusion.Imaging.Pdf.Net.Core NuGet package

Step 3: Add one dummy pdf file  to your project folder which contain images

Step 4: Create one folder inside your project solution to store images which is an extract from the pdf

Step 5: Create a view with one button to read pdf file from the folder

            <input type="submit" value="Extract Image" style="width:150px;height:27px" class="btn btn-info" />

Step 6: Copy and paste the below code into the controller to read the pdf path from the folder

using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Hosting;
  private readonly IHostingEnvironment _hostingEnvironment;
  public HomeController(IHostingEnvironment hostingEnvironment)
            _hostingEnvironment = hostingEnvironment;

Step 7: Copy and paste the below code into your controller to extract the image from the pdf

public void ExtractImages()
            //Load the PDF document 
            string path = _hostingEnvironment.WebRootPath + "/PDF/sample-pdf-with-images.pdf";
            Stream stream = new FileStream(path, FileMode.Open);
            PdfLoadedDocument loadedDocument = new PdfLoadedDocument(stream);

            Image[] images = null;

            for (int i = 0; i < loadedDocument.Pages.Count; i++)
                images = null;

                //Get the page 
                PdfLoadedPage page = loadedDocument.Pages[i] as PdfLoadedPage;

                //Extract images 
                images = page.ExtractImages();

                for (int j = 0; j < images.Length; j++)
                    //Save the image to memory stream
                    MemoryStream imageStream = new MemoryStream();
                    images[j].Save(imageStream, ImageFormat.Png);

                    //Save the image to local file
                    imageStream.Position = 0;
                    string Imagepath = _hostingEnvironment.WebRootPath + "/ExtractImage/";
                    FileStream file = new FileStream(Imagepath + "Image" + i.ToString() + ".png", FileMode.Create, FileAccess.Write);
            //Dispose the stream
