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.

File names for the spot color separation files are created by appending the Spot color name in ‘ ‘ and ‘. These are all switch settings on the DMP, and I have configured them for 8-bit data and carriage return exclusively. Otherwise ask for the page size by specifying only its dimensions.

High-level devices In addition to raster image files, Ghostscript supports output in a number of ‘high-level’ formats. An enhancement to do halftones is planned as well.

If you read the thread for the bug you opened in Bugzilla you’ll see why other options aren’t going to work, you need to use one of the ‘scaled’ devices.

For graphics parameters such as “cra” that need to work in pixels, the default resolution of 72dpi is always used. Happens the same on Linux and Windows. We have been warned by the people supporting the GIMP program that they reserve the right to change the XCF format at anytime and thus these devices may become invalid.

Then, for each data point is a line consisting of two space-separated floats – the output value and the input value.

These options can be set through the inclusion of a setup file on the command-line:.


Note that newer version of the hpijs drivers support the IJS protocol. A known issue with this driver is poor support for margins and page size. When using the separation color antiqliasing, the following options may be set using setpagedevice, as described in the PostScript Language Reference: The default value if you don’t specify this options is usually 72 dpi.

Ghostscript supports a variety of fax encodings, both encapsulated in TIFF see above and as raw files. First, make sure the IJS device is selected:.

The line immediately following AddLut is the number of data points. Points Points are a measure traditionally used in the printing trade and now in PostScript, which specifies exactly 72 points per inch approximately They may be ghostscripr as code examples, as well. We recommend moving to the ijs device for all such printing. The units in which height and width are given. The final control is to inform the trapping process in what order inks should be processed, from darkest to lightest.

If more spot colorants are encountered than is specified by ghostwcript, then a warning will be printed indicating that some spot colorants will be mapped to CMYK using the alternate tint transform. The PCX format does have the disadvantage that most of those viewers are on Windows. See the comments under the tiffsep and tiffsep1 device about the maximum number of spot colors supported by Ghostscript The psdcmykog device produces PSD files with 6 components: By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service.

HP provides official drivers for many of their Deskjet printer models. The spotcmyk device produces a binary data file similar to the bitcmyk device for the CMYK data.


These properties can be queried through the currentpagedevice operator. The tiffsep device also prints antialiasijg names of any spot colors detected within a document to stderr. The following example shows how to print on both faces of the paper using the long side of the paper as the reference: In order to use these drivers, you will need the HP Inkjet Server as well as Ghostscript, available ghostscriot http: For other information, see the Ghostscript overview.

The fax devices are faxg3faxg32d and faxg4.

Bug – bad antialiasing

There are a few undocumented parameters stored in the UserSettings dictionary. Setup files are in a simple “Key: Large numbers may generate very large intermediate files and will take longer to process.

This fixes the problem of relocation that is quite common on Win32 installations. The later case is described here. The background is transparent unless it has been explicitly filled.


If the resolution is not specified, Ghostscript queries the IJS server to determine the preferred resolution. The device also produces a binary data file similar to the bitmono device for each spot color plane.

You should not rely on them.
