Unfortunately, Preview is not currently scriptable... hard to believe, but true. Send feedback to Apple and ask them to add this functionality... its seems like a natural doesn't it?

Photoshop can do what you want, combined Applescript with Photoshop's built-in scripting. (Expensive, unless you already have Photoshop.)

Graphic Converter could do it with other types of images, but doesn't do PDF.

Maybe someone else knows of an inexpensive and alternative app that can handle this.

Regarding Applescript, there is a great <GREAT> beginning Applescript article in the December 2002 issue of MacWorld magazine. (Cover: "What's .Mac Worth?") Perhaps you can dig one up in a library or from a friend. It's written by Sal Soghoian, the product manager for Applescript and terrific guru/evangelist. I took a one day class from him last year and the article is basically worth a half day of the class.

Good luck. I encourage you to explore Applescript. It sounds like it could help in a production environment like yours. Visit and check out some of the power.
