Converting a PDF file to a TIFF file without loosing quality

Postby Joao_Ferreira_Pires » 2009-04-18T17:04:10+00:00

Deal all,

I'm trying to convert a PDF file to a monochrome TIFF file with the following command:

convert -monochrome file.pdf file.tif

However, the resulting TIFF image has a bad quality compared with the original PDF file. There is any additional option that I need to use to preserve the image quality?

I need to have a black and white images, to be processed by a digital content system.

Thank you in an advance.

Best regards,

The additional parameters used with convert application solve the problems I had felt related with quality lost when I convert PDF to TIF file.

Once again, thank you for your support.
