# pdflatex, \includegraphics, and multi-page PDF files

I have a PDF file with multiple figures; each figure is a separate page in the PDF file.

I am using `pdflatex`, and I would like to use `\includegraphics` or equivalent to include some of the figures.

Of course I could use an external tool to split the PDF file into multiple one-page PDF files. Then I could use `\includegraphics` as usual. However, I would have a much simpler workflow if I could avoid this extra step. Hence the question:

How can I include, e.g., page 3 of `foo.pdf` as a figure?

I am aware that there is a Latex package called `pdfpages`, but it seems to be designed for something else: with `pdfpages`, each page in the input file will produce a full page in the final document, not just a box.

`graphicx` knows the `page` option:

``````\includegraphics[page=3]{foo}
``````

should work, or

``````\includegraphics[page=..,trim=...,clip]{foo}
``````

for only parts of the page. If you want to include more than one page then use Package `pdfpages` and the command `\includepdf`

Many thanks, it indeed works! I was already writing that I would like to do something like `\includegraphics[page=3]{foo}`, but didn't try it, as I couldn't find anything like that in the documentation of the `graphicx` package... Thus a follow-up question that might help me and others in the future: where is the `page=` option documented? – Jukka Suomela Dec 29 '10 at 19:35
that is defined only for the driver `pdftex`, the reason why you find it not in `graphicx`, but in the file `pdftex.def` – Herbert Dec 29 '10 at 19:53
But that effectively means that it's not documented at all, since pdftex.def certainly isn't where anyone should look for such information, and other that a single mention that the `graphicx` package has "automatic pdfTeX support", the pdftex documentation isn't really helpful either. (I've been using graphicx for years and didn't know about this either.) – Alan Munn Dec 29 '10 at 21:17
Anyone knows how to put not a entire page, but just a piece. I mean, just 60% of one page in a pdf file. – João Mar 7 '13 at 19:51
@João: use `\includegraphics[page=..,trim=...,clip]{file.pdf}` – Herbert Mar 8 '13 at 8:32
