If you're having trouble with white backgrounds turning black when converting PDFs to other formats, you need to use this function with Imagick::ALPHACHANNEL_REMOVE as the parameter (this is not currently on the constants page, but it exists in PHP 7.2) to remove the alpha channel.

<?php
$im
->setImageAlphaChannel(Imagick::ALPHACHANNEL_REMOVE );
?>
