Using Acrobat Reader? It can't extract images ... You would need the
full commercial program, not the free Reader product to do this.
That said if you're still having difficulty, send the file that you
want the images extracted from and I'll take a look. First e-mail me
though so I can tell you where to upload the file to -- Don't send to
this e-mail address.
