Re: Batch Convert Multi-page PDF(s) to Multi-page Tiff(s)

I really don't understand the fuzz. We are converting PDFs to TIFFs and JPEGs with IM on a regular basis. And it is just as easy as skeched by me. Give me a link to your four pages PDF and I will give it a try.

Hi, I would like to manipulate an image like this: http://www.unfallrekonstruktion.de/bilder/Example.JPG that is I would like to make a selection on a larger photograph, scale it down and insert the original version of some section of the image as a detail enlargement. I am working under Windows and...

Re: Batch Convert Multi-page PDF(s) to Multi-page Tiff(s)

You are making things too complicated.

convert test.pdf test.tif

will already convert the PDF into a multipage TIFF, with no need for interim steps.

Re: How to write command line output to text file?

Example do not detail the handling of standard error output in windows. If there even is such a concept in BAT scripts. The example demonstrates how you read stdout of a DOS command into VBScript. You can then perform the testing of the value within VBScript and act upon the result. So I think that...

Re: convert PDF highres to PDF lowres file

IM is not the right tool to do this. The easiest way to perform this task is to print the PDF via a PDF printer driver set to low resolution. This will leave vector objects and fonts untouched an re-calculate any raster graphics.

Re: -level option (under Windows?)

Anthony, I see the point in your arguing. Possibly this would only need some more explaination in the documentation. (I should have looked up what "quantum range" means; I believed it to be a strange word for "colour depth"!) I have performed huge amounts of histogram corrections over the last 15 ye...

Re: -level option (under Windows?)

I agree now that IM's behaviour in in agreement with the documentation, but does it coincide with what the user (me) would expect? If I want to make a histogram correction, I have probably analized the input file(s) beforehand. If they have a colour depth of 8 bit, I will have noted 8 bit values for...

-level option (under Windows?)

Having been active on the mailing list for some time, I now try the "new" board for the first time: I think there is a bug in the -level option when using fixed values as command line parameters for 8 bit images in the 16 bit versions of IM: Convert -size 256x256 -depth 8 -colorspace gray gradient: ...
