What can I do with the Raster Image Printer?

Complete control over the file size and image quality of the raster image files created.
The image printer is configured to produce good quality pictures upon install, but there are times when you need to control the size of the file or the quality of the image produced. Increase the printer’s resolution (to a maximum of 600 DPI) to increase the quality of the image, or lower the resolution (to a minimum of 50 DPI) to create a smaller sized image.

Save space with automatic color options – the fewer the colors, the smaller the file.
The image printer takes the guesswork out of selecting the color mode the image is stored in when performing convert to JPEG, PDF, TIFF to name a few. Without affecting the image quality, the virtual printer can automatically reduce your document image to the fewest number of colors possible. This option is easily changed if you always need true color, greyscale or monochrome images.

Customize the image file format options to get the exact file you need, every time.
For certain types of applications, such as archival, fax, or proprietary systems, the type of image file that needs to be used is restricted in format and compression type, and will be rejected if it does not match. Raster Image Printer provides the ability for you to specify the image format and compression that must be generated in order to guarantee these files will be accepted by these systems every time.

Advanced file naming convention
If your files need to follow a specific naming convention or be stored in a certain location, the PEERNET Multi-Format Image Printer advanced file naming ability can be easily configured to meet your needs – be it for an archival, fax or other proprietary systems.

Ultimate control and tight integration with your workflow process.
To streamline or automate any process, the PEERNET raster driver provides several points in its file creation process that allows you to attach your own processing logic that will run or be invoked before or after the creation of your raster image file(s).
