pythonmagick pdf to image

I've always used PIL for image work in python, but I needed to convert a PDF to an image recently and using image magick looked to be the way. There is a pythonmagick interface to use imagemagick in python, but there is zero documentation... Here is what I'm using to do the job:
#!/usr/bin/env python

import PythonMagick

pdf = 'doc.pdf'
p = PythonMagick.Image()    
p.density('600')
p.read(pdf)
p.write('doc.jpg')
This sets the density value (default is 72) that the pdf is read at, so that you can get a higher resolution image from the PDF, and then simply writes it to a jpg file.
