'Convert Image' Revision History
Comprehensive Image Conversion
Conversion Items may now be moved within the 'Conversion Task
List'. Select the CONVERSION menu item or the RIGHT MOUSE CLICK to open a pop-up menu item.
Move UP, DOWN, FIRST, and LAST are now available. CTRL-U and
CTRL-D also move a conversion item up and down respectively.
Users may now be asked to save the 'Conversion Job' file if they
are exiting, loading an existing 'Conversion Job' file, or
requesting to create a new 'Conversion Job'. If there is no
'conversion job' file at the time, there must be at least 2
conversion items in the 'Conversion job' to be asked to save.
Users will not be asked to save if they've loaded a 'Conversion
Job' and haven't modified it.
On rare occasion, loading a 'Conversion Job' file would not
work. This happened when setting to convert all pages in a tiff
by specifying "*", the asterisk.
Command Line: A time stamp will be put in
the log file (if /L is specified).
Japanese language file updated
User Interface greatly enhanced.
Windows 7 compatibility enhancements made. Default report
folders now updated.
Help system completely rewritten. CHM help file now used, and
web help is there for backup.
- User Interface: The terms "Original"
and "Target" file have been replaced with the more
intuitive "Input" and "Output"
- User Interface: If users launch the target
file and it does not exist, now it opens the folder in explorer.
User Interface: Upon completion of a
Conversion Job, the status bar now flashes 100% complete.
If minimized, the taskbar flashes to indicate completion.
User Interface: When running the scheduler, if program is
minimized the time remaining shows up in the task bar.
User Interface: When running the scheduler, PAUSE button now
enabled to halt scheduler.
The Shell Extender would open the program, however the user
interface would not look proper.
Move the input (original) file after processing has been added
as an option. See the File\Options menu or the Options button in
the user interface. This will be very helpful for those looking
to use the scheduler to convert a specific folder of files while
avoiding redundant conversions.
Scheduler updated. Countries where time format was MM/DD/YYYY
were sometimes problematic.
Command Line: /O switch was broken.
Command Line: Full path not required for /S /T /L /B and /J. If
the full path is not specified it is assumed the current folder
will be used. If the current folder path is invalid, then the
folder that contains ConvertXLS.exe will be used. This makes it
easy to specify the command line like so:
ConvertImage.EXE /S "Coffee.jpg" /T "cream.png" /F1 /C8
to 1.983 (4/21/2009)
to 1.980 (3/29/2009)
Usability: Users no longer have to press the ADD button for the
program to convert. Upon pressing the ADD button, the program
assumes you will be creating a conversion job
that has more than one conversion item.
Usability: When pressing the PAUSE button, the status bar now
reflects this fact, and the Green check or Red X is properly
displayed if the last running conversion job finished.
Usability: Users no longer have to press REWIND if the last run
went to 100% completion.
Usability: When pressing the PAUSE button, the mouse now
restores back to the arrow as it should.
Error Logging: If users pressed PAUSE during a conversion job,
and then clicked CONVERT, any errors logged from this point had
an incorrect 'Conversion Job Number'.
Command Line: Should run much faster now that many ini
parameters are not being unnecessarily loaded.
Language translation: When looking at an image within the image
viewer, the buttons were not being translated.
Language module added
Command Line: If a conversion job was not rewound, the command line
would report a successful conversion, even though it did nothing.
Now, if doing the command line, the complete conversion job is done
from beginning to end, regardless of whether or not the conversion
job was rewound last time it was edited.
number of files during trial changed from 250 to 100
CONVERSION\Converting from TIFF to TIFF when the target file did
not exist, and Appending was set to true caused a crash.
Numerous special processes for transforming images have been
image transformation added.
Viewer greatly enhanced
Numerous examples of command line usage added in documentation.
