Creating a JPEG, GIF, PNG or BMP Image File

Top  Previous  Next

The Win2PDF setup program creates a printer in the "Devices and Printers" folder named Win2Image.

 

To create a image file in JPEG, TIFF, GIF, PNG, or BMP format:

 

Open a document from a Windows application (Word, Excel, Internet Explorer, etc.)

Print the document as you normally do but select the Win2Image printer

You will be prompted to enter the name of the document, as shown on this screen:

 

Win2Image File Save Window

Win2Image File Save Window

 

The default file name is supplied by the sending application.  You can choose the format using the "Save as type:" options.  Win2Image supports the following formats in color and monochrome/grayscale:

TIFF

JPEG

GIF

PNG

BMP

 

If the document contains more than one page, a separate file with a page number appended to the file name will be created for each page for all formats except TIFF.

 

You can choose a number of optional actions to take after the document is created by selecting the check boxes.  The options include:

 

View File - Opens the file in the default viewer after the file is created. For multiple page documents that create multiple image files, only the first page is opened.

Print File - Prints the file to the default printer after the file is created. For multiple page documents that create multiple image files, only the first page is printed. This option is only available when Win2Image is not the Windows system default printer.

Send File - Opens a new email message using the default MAPI-compliant email client such as Outlook and attaches the file to the message. For multiple page documents that create multiple image files, only the first page is attached. The email program is specified in the Internet Options icon in the Windows control panel.  If the Win2PDF Mail Helper application is installed, the Mail Helper application will be opened to send the email instead of the default MAPI client.

Delete after Sending - Deletes the document after it has been sent using the "Send PDF" option.

 

You can use the file save window to browse to a new location before saving the document.  Win2Image remembers this location, and will use the same location the next time you create a document.
