I'm currently using pdftoppm to convert a pdf to png files. I have a two page pdf, and I'm using the command:

pdftoppm -png filename.pdf filename

This generates two png files "filename-1.png" and "filename-2.png". Is there a way I can override what the index starts at? I want to zero-index the file names so it would create two files that are named "filename-0.png" and "filename-1.png". Any suggestions?

Why is renaming the files afterwards not feasible? – mpy May 23 '13 at 17:45
I guess it could be done afterwards, I was just wondering if there was an easier way. – 12hys May 28 '13 at 15:11

Only the PPM-root can be specified; I don't see any way to modify the index used. The first page (which you can specify with the -f parameter) is 1.

However the source is available, so feel free to modify it and change the base index to your liking.
