I've been getting alot of PDF's from clients that are actually low-rez and no good for printing. The problem is I no-longer have any pre-flight software to check the files easily.

I was wondering if it's possible to use Ghostscript or PDFtk (both of which I have installed) to extract information about the files. Namely ... image resolutions, image color space (CMYK or RGB), dimensions, etc...

I could then use a Shell Script to check these files.

Any help would be greately appreciated.
