it would be great if when a pdf is uploaded that the appropriate thumbnails are created.

In other words, if thumbnail 1 and 2 are checked, then those images would be created as jpg.

Hi Jeff, 

Thanks for the suggestion.  There's no way we can do that currently because it requires some PHP libraries that aren't guaranteed to be on all servers (ImageMagick and GhostScript).   There are some code examples here if you wanted to give it a try: https://www.google.ca/search?q=PHP+Create+Thumbnail+from+PDF

And if you had a client project with the budget for it and a server that supported those libraries we could always look at doing it as a consulting job for you.  

In any case, thanks for the suggestion!

All my clients are on my reseller account and I control the libraries installed. I can write a plugin myself, but I think it is reasonable to test if the libraries are installed and then automatically do it. If not installed, then skip.
