PDF images are ready
Triggered when all pages from all PDFs have been processed and converted to base64 image strings.
URLs are ready
Triggered when all images have been uploaded and their URLs are ready. This event only occurs if upload_images is true.

Workflow example

⏩ In general, Base64 images are faster to process so the event "PDF Preview PDF Images are Ready" will fire first. In case you want to use the actual image URLs (saved to S3), you should wait for the "PDF preview URLs are ready" event to be fired.
πŸ”— You can use a list of PDF URLs as input for the PDF Splitter. You can do this by simply giving it a list of files and use the ":each item's URL" operator.
βš™οΈ The plugin will return a list of strings that contain the information about the PDF and page + the actual image. It will look like this: "pdf_{pdf_number}_page_{page_number}__{Image string}" For Base64 images, the image string will be the base64 image string. For image URLs, the image string will be the Amazon S3 URL.
πŸͺ„ In both cases, if you want to display the images, for example in a repeating group, you need to split the strings "by __ (double underscore)" and pass "each item's last item" to the repeating group datasource, the data type should be "Image".
