Shows what's broken.

For the corrupted pdf file at:,_Army_Corps_of_Engineers-_Puerto_Rico_-_Compact_of_Permanent_Union_%281%29%28Gerald_Ford_Library%29%281554455%29.pdf

The portion which normally says:
Size of this preview: ...
Full resolution ‎...

appears to have the formatting wrong for this portion. It is highlighted in the screenshot.

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

I have the same problem also, it seems to be with all PDFs and not just this one.

I'm wondering about my version of gs or pdfinfo (8.70 and 3.03).

So 2 issues here.

*when metadata fails to be extracted, dimensions should default to 0×0 so the failure is graceful.

  • metadata extraction fails for that image (you can tell by looking at iiprop=metadata in the api). This could hust be a broken image but should investigate.

Re comment 3 - if it happens for all pdfs for you probably an issue with pdfinfo command

Ah, I think I figured it out.

Most of my problems went away when I went from pdfinfo 0.22 to 0.12.4.

My next problem was dealing with an out of memory error when running gs, but messing with ulimit helped with that too.
