Raster Image Printer supports more than 24 file formats. Raster Image Printer is ideal for document imaging, computer-aided document design (CADD), and graphic design. This virtual printer specializes in producing the exact image you require (be it JPEG, PDF, TIFF, GIF, PNG, or any other) through its customizable image-specific properties. Using Raster Image Printer is as simple as printing to your desktop printer.

Raster Image Printer Features

With Raster Image Printer, converting a document into a high-quality image or file is as easy as 1-2-3 . . .

1) Start your application, and open the document you want to convert.

2) Print your document, but instead of your standard printer, select Raster Image Printer.

3) When prompted, select where you want to save the output file, choose the profile you want applied and you're done.

For users requiring custom TIFF/PDF/JPEG etc. files that meet a specific business requirement you can create personal conversion profiles to create the output file you want.

Raster Image Printer includes a user interface that is modern, clean and easy-to-use. There is a Dashboard, which is the hub for Raster Image Printer where users can edit their conversion settings, manage their printers and access licensing tools. In addition, the Dashboard provides quick access help and resources. Raster Image Printer uses Profiles, which are a group of settings used to create the output file you want. These can be created and edited through the Profile Manager interface. When created or editing a Profile within Profile Manager, users will have access to many output settings all detailed below. Another utility within Raster Image Printer is Printer Management, which allows users to copy, create, delete, and rename instances of TIFF Image Printer without having to work with the Devices and Printers menu.

Output setting options for Raster Image Printer include the following:

  • Save options - Save your documents as JPEG, TIFF, PNG, as a PDF file, or one of the other supported image formats. Easily create serialized files (one image per page per file) or multipaged files (all images in one file) and use the Append feature to combine images or to create sequences of images.
  • Color Reduction - Limit the number of colors in the output files to create color images, greyscale images, black and white images, etc. using color reduction options.
  • Disable Prompting - Amend the Prompt for the output location and base file name setting with the option to also pre-set the file name and save location.
  • Compression Settings - Individual compression settings for JPG and TIFF images, and full compression options for PDF files combine to give you full control over the file size of your output.
  • Fax Mode - Produce fax-ready images using standard fax profiles. Fax scaling and alignment options give you complete control over the fax image you create.
  • Custom File Naming - Add, edit, and reorder output filename parts to automatically create unique naming conventions using Filename Creator.
  • PDF Security - Create PDF files with specific PDF security settings. Select a file encryption level, designate file permissions, or add an open password and/or change password requirement.
  • Image Downsampling - Control the size and quality of any images (such as pictures, screenshots, company logos) embedded in Adobe Searchable PDF file, which can help reduce the final size of the output PDF.
  • Page Editing - Take advantage of the built-in page editing features - auto-rotate your pages, crop sections of your page, automatically trim the margins and adjust the page brightness in one easy step.
  • Page Resizing - Copy each page of the document to a larger or smaller page with full alignment options. Resample each page to a particular width and height in pixels, as a percentage of the original size, or by setting a new image resolution (DPI). Add borders to the page with a specific size and color.
  • Document Information - Add basic descriptive information to be added to your output file. These descriptions are used by Adobe’s search engine and also by many search engines to describe the document in their results list.
  • Stamping - Add text, image, page numbering and date/time of conversion stamps to your pages as you create them. Font style, size and color can all be customized. Stamps can be placed anywhere on the page with alignment, transparency and rotation options.
