Converting Images and need powerful software?

About 'Convert Image'

'Convert Image' is a simple to use, yet sophisticated image conversion and manipulation utility. If you need to convert one or thousands of images of varying types this is the tool.  The most popular task our customers perform is to convert PNG to/from a JPG file.

'Convert Image' can be very useful if you require complicated conversion jobs be done on a regular basis. By saving and recalling a conversion job file, 'Convert Image' quickly remembers all the conversion tasks and their details. All of our conversion tools have numerous features. For example you can schedule a conversion job at a regular interval (time or calendar based) while optionally moving/deleting the input files. Also, our conversion tools have the ability to launch other programs and perform file operations.

Run this software from the command line allowing for use within batch files as well as being used from other programs programmatically.

In addition to file conversion, numerous special processes for images have been included. These are:

  • Manipulate: Resize, rotate, flip, shift, perspective, skew, twirl and more!
  • Color: Autocontrast, autolevel, hue, contrast, saturation, desaturation, blue, green, red, gamma, invert and more!
  • Special effects: Add noise, diffuse, dilation, emboss, erode, blur, mosaic, relief, texturize and more!
  • Filters: High pass, Low pass, Laplas, Line detection, and more!

Image conversions by command line

The command line is one of the most widely known, accepted and implemented methods for allowing one software app to initiate another app. That's why we've made it our goal to make all of our software command line able.

Automate conversions with the command line using:

  • Simple bat files
  • Windows built in scheduler
  • 'Convert Image's built in scheduler
  • Third party apps that have command line interfaces

What is the command line?

NOTE: After installation, you can find several simple batch (*.bat) files for quick and easy usage by going to Start\All Programs\Convert Image\Example Batch Files. These will work immediately provided the installation was in the default folder. Email us at  if you have any questions or need additional examples. We will get you up and running fast!


Although we'll discuss the use of the command line here, it's only to give you a taste. For the full, accurate, and up to date information see the 'Convert Image' command line documentation. There you will also find a full list of examples and how to troubleshoot. See using the Windows Scheduler also.


There are two approaches to using the command line:

  • Specify one or more conversion tasks in a conversion job
  • Specify a single conversion task in detail. See Convert Image command line examples to get started quickly with specifying a conversion task or continue reading.

Specifying a 'Conversion Job'

Specifying a 'Conversion Job' is very easy, as you only need to tell 'Convert Image' where to find the associated *.SII 'Conversion Job' file.  A 'Conversion Job' file is created within the user interface. Set up all the conversions you want within the user interface, then save the conversion job file from the File menu. All the details associated with this conversion job are executed in one fell swoop.

The syntax for specifying a 'Conversion Job'  is:
 ConvertImage /J{ConversionJobFile}  [/V] [/L{LogFile}] [/B{LogToJobFile}]

Items above enclosed in square brackets "[ ]" are optional, all other ‘switches’ are required.  Therefore /J should always be specified on the command line.
Example:

To run the 'Conversion Job' specified by "C:\MyJobs\convert-PNG-to-JPG.SII" type the following in at the 'Command Prompt':
  ConvertImage /J "C:\MyJobs\convert-PNG-to-JPG.SII"

You can include or exclude spaces between switches and parameters.  For example,  "/F6" is the same as "/F  6".  For long file names you may be required to use double quotes.  For example /J "C:\Program Files\MyApp\PNG to JPG Conversion Job.SII".

Specifying a 'Conversion Task'

Specifying a 'Conversion Task' is a bit more tedious, but does not require the prior creation of a 'Conversion Job' file.
The syntax for the command line when specifying a conversion task is:

ConvertImage /S{Input File(s)} /T{Output File(s)} [/F#] [/C#] [/G] [/R] [/L{LogFile}] [/B{LogToJobFile}] [/V] [/Z] [/1-9] [/P#] [/a-j]

 

Items above enclosed in square brackets "[ ]" are optional, all other 'switches' are required. Therefore /S, /T should always be specified on the command line. There is one exceptions, however and that is when /G (Save to input folder) is specified, the /T switch is not necessary.

You can include or exclude spaces between switches and parameters. For example, "/F6" is the same as "/F 6".

Command switches are case sensitive, therefore /F is completely different from /f.

For long file names (e.g. a path or file name with spaces in it, or longer than 8.3 format) you are required to use double quotes. For example:

ConvertImage.EXE /S "C:\Input Folder\Coffee.jpg" /T "C:\Output folder\cream.png" /F1 /C8 /V

 

/S{Input File(s)} is used to specify which files to convert. You can specify a single file, or in some cases a whole set of files using the wildcard syntax (i.e. "C:\MyFiles\*.BMP"). /T{Output files} should always be different from /S{Input File(s)}.

 

/T{Output File(s)} is used to specify where to save the converted file(s) to. You can specify a single file, or in some cases a whole set of files using the wildcard syntax (i.e. "C:\MyFiles\*.BMP"). /T{Output files} should always be different from /S{Input File(s)}.

 

/F# tells 'Convert Image' what the input file type is. You must supply a number for the # symbol. Remember the input file, specified by the /S{Input File(s)} switch, has an extension which determines it's file type. For all constants see File Type Constants. /F /C are required if you are not using file names with standard file extensions (standard file extensions are jpg, tif, gif, etc). For example if you working with bitmap files with file names like mybitmap.abc then you definitely need to specify the /F and/or /C switch.

 

/C# tells 'Convert Image' what the output file type is. You must supply a number for the # symbol. Remember the output file, specified by the /T{Output File(s)} switch, has an extension which determines it's file type. For all constants see File Type Constants. /F /C are required if you are not using file names with standard file extensions (standard file extensions are jpg, tif, gif, etc). For example if you working with bitmap files with file names like mybitmap.abc then you definitely need to specify the /F and/or /C switch.

 

[/G] Save files to their input folders. Use this instead of /T to place the converted files in the same folder as the input file. This cannot be used when converting a single, specified file from within a folder. Use the /T switch instead.

 

[/R] Seek out and do all files found in the sub-folders specified in the /S switch. Recursive subdirectories. You may add this switch if you are processing whole directories of files. See /S, /T and /G for more details on selecting whole directories to be converted.

 

[/L{LogFile}] Log file path and name (e.g. d:\mylogs\MoreInfo.LOG). If this switch is specified a log file with the given path and name will be created and the results of the conversion will be written to it. See also /V and /Z.

 

[/B{LogToJobFile}] Save the Log file as a 'Conversion Job' ONLY IF ERRORS OCCURRED. This is useful if the files that had problems can be done at a later time, or with a different method. /B is different from /L, since the file generated with /B will not include extraneous comments not allowed in a 'Conversion Job' file. Save as a .SII file type so it can be loaded as a job.

 

[/V] Verbose mode. Specify this switch to display a message box indicating how the conversion went. See also /L.

 

[/Z] Verbose Log. All file operations will be recorded in the log.

 

[/1] TIFF: Pages to convert. For example if you have a multipage TIFF and you want to convert the 1st and 3rd page use "/1 1,3". To do pages 2-5 use "/1 2-5" .

[/2] TIFF: Compression to use when converting TO a TIFF file (default is no compression). Use "/2 0" for no compression and "/2 1" for LZW compression.

0 - No compression. Save image as 24bpp uncompressed TIFF file.

1 - LZW. Save image as 24bpp TIFF file with LZW compression.

2 - RLE. Save image as 1bpp TIFF file with RLE compression.

3 - CCITT3. Save image as 1bpp TIFF file with CCITT3 compression.

4 - CCITT4. Save image as 1bpp TIFF file with CCITT4 compression.

[/3] TIFF: Append to existing when converting to a TIFF. Use "/3 TRUE" to append "/3 FALSE" not to.

[/4] JPEG: Quality of the resulting JPG from 0 to 100 (default is 100). 0 is lowest and 100 is highest quality. The higher the quality the larger the resulting output file. Use "/4 100" for highest quality.

[/5] TAG: TITLE of the image. For example to associate the title of "President" to the resulting image use "/5 President" .

[/6] TAG: DESCRIPTION of the image. For example to associate the description of "Money is the product of a humans capacity to think" to the resulting image use "/6 Money is the product of a humans capacity to think" .

[/7] TAG: DATE/TIME of the image. For example to associate the date/time "July 4th 1976" to the resulting image use "/7 July 4th 1976" .

[/8] TAG: AUTHOR of the image. For example to associate the author "Krishnamurti" to the resulting image use "/8 Krishnamurti" .

[/9] TAG: COPYRIGHT of the image. For example to associate the copyright "Copyright 2005, Softinterface" to the resulting image use "/9 Copyright 2005, Softinterface".

Image File Type Constants for Use with /F# and /C#



Example 1: Convert from PNG to a JPG (Single file)

Specify the source (/S) and output files (/T), the PNG format (/F8) of the input, the JPG format (/C1) of the output, specify a JPG quality of 78 (/4 78) with on-screen confirmation (/V):


ConvertImage.EXE /S "C:\Samples\Coffee.png" /T "C:\Output\cream.jpg" /F8 /C1 /4 78 /V

 

To change the output file type change the /T{Output File} and /C# switch. To change the input file type change the /S{Input File} and the /F# switch. The /C# /F# switches are not always needed

Example 2: Convert from PNG to a JPG (Whole folder and sub-folders)

Specify the source (/S) and output files (/T), the PNG format (/F8) of the input, the JPG format (/C1) of the output, specify a JPG quality of 20 (/4 20) with on-screen confirmation (/V), specify subfolders (/R):

 

ConvertImage.EXE /S "C:\Samples\*.png" /T "C:\Samples\Output\*.jpg" /F8 /C1 /4 20 /V /R
