'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 JPG, TIFF and Bitmap files.

'Convert Image' can be especially useful if you require complicated conversion jobs to 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.

All of our tools run from the command line allowing for use in batch files or can be automated from within 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!

  • Launch (Run) a program. This includes file operations such as delete, copy, etc.

Command Line Explained  

Quickly get going by checking out our Command Line Examples. You can do this by installing the program, running the program, then press F1 to open the help file. Once there, look for command line examples.

'Convert Image' can be run without a user interface with command line arguments much like in the good old DOS days.  Alternatively you can initiate command line execution by going to the operating system's 'command prompt' or within Windows from the START-RUN menu and typing it in there.  Lastly, the command line interface can be used from Batch files (files with *.BAT extension). 

 There are two approaches to doing the command line:

A)  Specify a 'Conversion Job' that was built using the graphical user interface (GUI)

B)   Specify a 'Conversion Task' in detail

Specifying a 'Conversion Job' is very easy, as you only need to tell 'Convert Image' where to find the associated *.SII 'Conversion Job' file.  All the details associated with this task are executed in one fell swoop.

Specifying a 'Conversion Task' is much more tedious, but does not require the prior creation of a 'Conversion Job' file.

Each approach is discussed in more detail below.

IMPORTANT: To use the command line successfully the operating system will need to know where exactly the application is located. Otherwise, you'll see the following error:

"ConvertImage" is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

We suggest you do one of the following:

A)    Set the path in your operating system’s environment variables to the installation location of ConvertImage.EXE. See your operating system’s help for setting the path.

B)    Create a batch file (a text file whose file name ends in .bat) that uses the fully qualified path of ConvertImage.EXE.

For example the following is a typical batch file:

"C:\Program Files\Softinterface, Inc\Convert Image\ConvertImage.EXE" /S "C:\In\Coffee.bmp" /T "C:\Out\Mocha.gif" /F2 /C4 /V

Specifying a 'Conversion Job'
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 JPG to Tiff.SII" type the following in at the 'Command Prompt':

 ConvertImage /J "C:\MyJobs\Convert JPG to Tiff.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\convert JPG to Tiff.SII".
 

Specifying a 'Conversion Task'
 

The syntax for the command line for specifying a conversion task is:

 

ConvertImage /S{Original File(s)} /T{Target 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 are two exceptions, however, and they are:

A)      /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.

B)      when /G (Save to original 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".  For long file names you may be required to use double quotes.  For example, /S "C:\Program Files\MyApp\MyImage.JPG".  Command switches are case sensitive, therefore /F is completely different from /f.

 

/S{Original 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{Target files} should always be different from /S{Original File(s)}.

 

/T{Target 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{Target files} should always be different from /S{Original File(s)}.

 

/F# tells ‘Convert Image’ what the original file type is.  You must supply a number for the # symbol.  Remember the original file, specified by the /S{Original File(s)} switch, has an extension which determines it’s file type.   For all constants see File Type Constants.

 

/C# tells ‘Convert Image’ what the target file type is.  You must supply a number for the # symbol.  Remember the target file, specified by the /T{Target File(s)} switch, has an extension which determines it’s file type.   For all constants see File Type Constants.

 

[/G] Save files to their original folders.  Use this instead of /T to place the converted files in the same folder as the original 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 (i.e. d:\mylogs\CITP.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.

 

[/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 target 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".

/P# Special Process Identifier. An integer, which tells 'Convert Image' which special process to apply to the Original (input) files.  For example /P2 tells ‘Convert Image’ to resize an image.  /P is almost always used with /a- /j switches. See table below for a list of all Special Processes.

[/a- /j] These parameters compliment the /P switch which tells ‘Convert Image’ which special process to perform.  /a- /j are used to specify additional parameters that may be necessary for the special process being done.  For example /P2 tells ‘Convert Image’ to resize an image.  In this case /a is used to specify the width, /b is used to specify the height, /c is used to specify the method of interpolation and /d is used to specify the background color. This might end up looking like:

ConvertImage /SC:\Input\Tryme.jpg /TC:\Output\Out.jpg /P2 /a10 /b20 /c2 /d0 /V

 

/P# Meaning Extra Parameters:   /a{Parameter1} … /j

Transform

Resize an Image

/a = New width of the image (Pixels)

/b = New height of the image (Pixels)

/c = Method of Interpolation (0 = None, 1 = bilinear, 2 = Bicubic).  The method by which the picture is recalculated (shrunk or stretched).  You have 3 choices (None, bilinear, and Bicubic).

/d = Background color of the new image. This is an integer value.

BackColor = Red + Green*256 + Blue*256*256 (Red, Green and Blue are 8 bits each)

For example,  = (R=51, G=193, B = 172) = 51 + 193*256 + 172*256*256 = 11321651

/e = Retain Aspect Ratio. ("TRUE" or "FALSE"). Set to true to ensure the ratio of height to width remains the same as the original image.  Use /a or /b but not both if setting this switch to TRUE.
