1. Image Options:

  • Check the Button for "Free Image Writer" and Select Image Type: PNG, JPG, BMP, TIF, or GIF.
  • PNG:  PNG (pronounced 'ping') stands for Portable Network Graphics, and is the recommended format for high-quality images. It supports full quality color and offers excellent lossless compression of the image data, and is widely supported.  Please see the PNG website for a complete description of the format.   Here are Image PNG Options:


    PNG16M: 24-bit RGB Color

    PNGGRAY: Grayscale Color

    PNG256: 8-bit Color

    PNG16: 4-bit Color

    PNGMONO: Black-and-White Color

    PNGALPHA: 32-bit RGBA Color


  • JPG: JPG or JPEG is a compression method specifically intended for continuous-tone images such as photographs, not for graphics, and it is therefore quite unsuitable for the vast majority of page images produced with PostScript. For anything other than pages containing simple images the lossy compression of the jpeg format will result in poor quality output regardless of the input.  It is good for photographic or scanned images. Here are Image JPG  Options:

JPEG:  Color JPEG file
JPEG Quality: Scale 1-100%. Lower values drop more information from the image to achieve higher compression, and therefore have lower quality when reconstituted

BMP16M: 24-bit RGB Color
BMPMONO: Black-and-White Color
BMPGRAY: Grayscale Color
BMP16: 4-bit Color
BMP256: 8-bit Color
BMP32B: 32-bit RGBA Color

  • TIF: Tagged Image File Format (abbreviated TIFF) is a file format for storing images, including photographs and line art. It is very useful when all the image pages needs to be saved into a single image file (Page Number Digits need to be 0). Here are Image TIF options.

TIFF24NC: Produces 24-bit RGB output (8 bits per component).
TIFFGRAY: Produces 8-bit gray output.
TIFF12NC: Produces 12-bit RGB output (4 bits per component).
TIFF32NC: Produces 32-bit CMYK output (8 bits per component).
TIFFCRLE: G3 fax encoding with no EOLs
TIFFG3: G3 fax encoding with EOLs
TIFFG32D: 2-D G3 fax encoding
TIFFG4: G4 fax encoding
TIFFLZW: LZW-compatible (tag = 5) compression
TIFFPACK: PackBits (tag = 32773) compression

GIF16M: 24-bit RGB Color
GIFGRAY: Grayscale Color
GIF256:  8-bit Color
GIF16:  4-bit Color
GIFMONO: Black-and-White Color

  • Image Resolution: This option sets the resolution of the output file in dots per inch.
  • Page Number Digits: The digits of page number format. This number will append to the name of the images file name.
      If 0, only one file will be created. TIF image has multiple pages inside.
      If 1, the page number will begin a single digit 1,2,3...
      If 2, it will begin with 01, 02, 03, .. 10, 11,...
      If 3, it will begin with 001, 002, 003, ...., 010, ....

  • Text or Graphics Alpha Bits:  These options control the use of subsample antialiasing.  Their use is highly recommended for producing high quality rasterizations of the input files. The option 4 is used for most optimum output, but smaller values can be used for faster rendering and smaller image size. Antialiasing is enabled separately for text and graphics content.   
  • Rotation (degree): Rotate all the images by 0, 90, 180 or 270.
  • Flip Option: Flip all the images: No Flip; Flip Horizontally; Flip Vertically.

2. Output Options: Use default folder or name, view file after saving...

  • Use default Folder: The Image file will be saved under this folder automatically. Click the right Button to select the folder location.
  • Use Default File Name: The image file name for the saved file. 

  • Use Print Job Name: Use the file name parsed from Print job name.

  • View File after Saving: The Image file will be displayed automatically after the saving.
  • Simple GUI (Hide this dialog in saving File): This option dialog will be hidden during the saving. If either the default folder or the default file name is not defined, the Save As Dialog comes out, you can switch the File Type of PDF, PNG, JPG, BMP, GIF or TIF.
  • Add Time Stamp on File Name: Append Time Stamp onto File Name.
