Insanely handy! In the case that anyone is interested, pdfimages is included in the package poppler-utils, a library for rendering PDFs.
All though Gimp is popular, and to many people very useful, I think that is your best option, I use a different "graphics utility" (Image Magick), but the point is,
when it comes to working with PDF, documents, and extracting the images or text,etc. ... it is better to use additional utilities intended for that,
After all said and done, the "screen shot" method, is a very simple , easy solution as well. Then the image can be edited, resized, etc, with your choice of "graphics" utility,.. Gimp, ImageMagic,,etc...
