What type of images does your PDF contain?

I'm fairly certain that PDFBox has no provisions for extracting images from PDFs. Text - yes, images - no. A quick look at its feature list would seem to confirm that.

Edit: I take that back - it seems that PDFBox does have some fairly low-level routines for image extraction which do work for some kinds of images, although not all of them. So it would seem to depend on the PDF in question, and its embedded images,like James said.

Hence my question. I have seen extraction of JPEGs and PNGs before.

Image in pdf is non selectable but all extraction is enabled for pdf properties .
it gives error DCTFilter.decode while using pdfbox.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
