I am trying to use ghostscript to convert PDFs to TIFFs. It works nicely except that anti-aliasing does not appear to happen even when I request it. ?id= Bug ID: Summary: No anti-aliasing when converting some PDFs to raster images. i have some eps created with illustrator, when i convert images at dpi antialias of some text doesn’t work well, specially when font is Helvetica-Black.

We recommend moving to the ijs device for all ghosstscript printing. Several extra options exist which cannot be set through the command-line, but only by executing the appropriate PostScript setup code. The driver tries access again each five seconds. This can get rather verbose. Most of the configuration parameters, including resolution, choice of printer model, and linearization curves, are in a separate setup file.


Currently, the code has the limitation of 8-bit continuous antialuasing rendering only. Tumble controls the ghotscript. In some cases, this will cause an additional page to be ejected at the end of a job. Please see the PNG website for a complete description of the format. This is useful for output devices that are high resolution, but that have trouble rendering isolated pixels. Setup files are in a simple “Key: These suppress interactive prompts and enable some security checks on the file to be run.


For the tiffsep device, it changes the compression scheme of the separation files and composite cmyk file which is vhostscript by default. If you need to measure larger pages than this, you must reset both the resolution and the page size in pixels, e.

The following example shows how to print on both faces of the antialasing using the long side of the paper as the reference:. Points Points are a measure traditionally used in the printing trade and now in PostScript, which specifies exactly 72 points per inch approximately It’s intended for testing only. Antialiasing is enabled separately for text and graphics content. Supported options device properties Several extra options exist which cannot be set through the command-line, but only by executing the appropriate PostScript setup code.

Please see their website for details. See the comments under the tiffsep and tiffsep1 device about the maximum number of spot colors supported by Ghostscript The psdcmyk16 and psdrgb16 devices are essentially the same as the psdcmyk and psdrgb devices except they provide 16 bit output.

The line immediately following AddLut is the number of data points. The pngalpha device is bit RGBA color with transparency indicating pixel coverage.

These devices follow the underlying device, so when viewed natialiasing the stated res:. This applies to lines and edges of polygonal and oval or circular shapes. There are two unrelated sets of TIFF drivers.


This is a general option telling Ghostscript what to name the output. Here is a screenshot of the PDF: Text antialiasing, poor file conversion Questions and postings pertaining to the usage of ImageMagick regardless of the interface. It were created for testing however it are not actually useful except as example ghoetscript. Duplex printing If the Windows printer supports the duplex printing feature, then it will also be available through the mswinpr2 device.

R: Graphics Device for Bitmap Files via Ghostscript

Perhaps the most common use of of a display device is with the X Window System on unix-like systems. Note that newer version of the hpijs drivers support the IJS protocol.

All TIFF drivers support creation of files that are comprised of more than a single strip. The mechanism by which MinFeatureSize is implemented for tiffscaled is different, in that it is done as part of the error diffusion. It uses this algorithm:. Spot colors need to be specified prior to opening the first page. The pngalpha device responds to the following option: The default value if you don’t specify this options is usually 72 dpi.
