           Summary: white border is added while fake-printing pdf to png
           Product: Ghostscript
           Version: 8.64
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P4
         Component: Graphics Library
        AssignedTo: support at artifex.com
        ReportedBy: bluedzins at wp.pl
         QAContact: gs-bugs at ghostscript.com

The problem is the same as in ImageMagick. I am trying to convert pdf file into 
png -- in GS instead of converting I am printing the file. And the problem is, 
no matter what I do, in result I get the image but with huge white border, the 
image itself is pushed into lower, left corner.

It is easiest to see in this example, single page pdf, whole page is black, 300 

I execute:
gs -q -sDEVICE=pnggray -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -dFirstPage=1 -dLastPage=1 -r300 -sOutputFile=black.png 
black.pdf 2>&1

I should get the same black rectangle, instead I get this:

One note: from what I see specifying the density is irrelevant here, the image 
gets bigger or smaller, but the white border remains.

[ sorry if the component is wrong, this is my first report at this site ]
