//load PDF stream
public void loadPDF(InputStream stream);
//get total PDF page information
public int getPageCount();
//changing output tiff image quality and definition by setting image resolution

   public static void main(String[] args)
           //load PDF in memory
           PDFDocument doc = new PDFDocument();
           int pageCount = doc.getPageCount();

           for(int i = 0; i < pageCount; i++)
               //convert each PDF page to image
               BufferedImage image = doc.toImage(i);
               //save image as tiff format
               OutputStream out = new FileOutputStream("output"+i+".tiff");
               TIFFEncodeParam param = new TIFFEncodeParam();
               TIFFImageEncoder encoder = new TIFFImageEncoder(out, param);
