Question on TIFF to PCL conversion

Post by jlatus » 2019-05-03T08:10:22-07:00

I have a 2-page TIFF converting to PCL. The input TIFF named m1.pcl is 79KB. Under ImageMagick 6.4.2-Q16 convert would create two output files:

m1-0.pcl 113KB
m1-1.pcl 113KB

Under ImageMagick 7.0.8-Q16 I get one output file:

m1.pcl 84KB

Is there any way to make a change so I get the same two file outputs under 7.0.8 as I did under 6.4.2 ?

The conversion command in use is:

magick convert -density 100 C:\m1.tif C:\m1.pcl

Thank You

For v7, I suggest you use "magick", not "magick convert".

I don't know the PCL format. Perhaps it can store both images in one file, so try "+adjoin". See http://www.imagemagick.org/script/comma ... php#adjoin

Code: Select all

magick -density 100 C:\m1.tif +adjoin C:\m1.pcl
Why are you using "-density"? What do you want this to do?
