To set options for image import/export
|1.||Select an appropriate Output resolution; you may choose from several options optimized for archiving images, faxing etc. or enter a custom resolution. See Image resolution.|
|2.||In certain cases when importing images for which the resolution is unspecified, it may be necessary to change the Input resolution from the default initial value of 300dpi (EscapeE accepts resolutions as low as 25 dpi).|
|o||You may force the initial input resolution to be used throughout the job by ticking Override. This is generally inadvisable unless the resolution of the images is known to be wrong.|
|o||More compression parameters may be configured when exporting to JPEG format. They may also be applied to images within IDF, PDF, PDF/A, PostScript format files. See JPEG compression options.|
|o||In addition to compression, when exporting to TIFF image format, further options may be configured. Click TIFF options... (see TIFF export options).|
|4.||To reduce the bulk of the document, you may opt to Omit blank pages. (Normally the viewing of blank pages on-screen is merely suppressed, see Show blank pages option.)|
|5.||Select the 'Image' area of the page to be exported. Choose from:|
|o||Full Outputs entire page(s): this is the default (equivalent to Select all option on the 'Edit' menu or pressing Alt A).|
|o||Paper size only Outputs an area of each page the size of the sheet of paper.|
|o||Printable region only Only the area of the page(s) which the printer is actually able to print on is shown; on many printers this may be several cm smaller than the full size of the paper.|
|o||Printed region only Only the area of each page that is actually printed on.|
|o||Selected area only You can export just part of a page by sweeping out the area for outputting then choosing this option.|
|6.||A border may be added to the Image by entering the widths of the left, top, right, and bottom borders in the editable box, in order one after the other, separated by commas.|
If only one width is specified, EscapeE automatically sets all four borders to that width. If two widths are specified EscapeE automatically sets the left and right borders to the first width, and the top and bottom borders to the second width. (Borders are normally set to 0 dots.)
|o||Select the units as cm, inches or pixels.|
|7.||Set up the Final size for the image:|
|o||Check Scale to to shape the final image to an exact size; enter the width and height in the boxes.|
|o||Check Trim to to crop the final image to an exact size; enter the width and height in the boxes.|
You may choose to use cm, inches or pixels as the unit of measurement.
|8.||A default image Cache size of 10Mb will usually suffice, but this value may be edited if necessary.|
|9.||When the Use ICC profiles box is checked, any colors expressed in CMYK will be converted to RGB by the RedTitan Color Management System using an ICC color profile: see the RTcms Help file.|
Click the ICC configure... button to display the configuration dialog for RTcms; select a CMYK profile and the required rendering intent.
|10.||Some formats (e.g. PNG, TIFF) allow the white parts of an image to be treated as transparent instead of opaque. Select Transparent white checkbox for 'transparent' treatment; deselect for 'opaque' treatment. See also Handling graphics.|
|11.||You may tick the Force monochrome box to convert colors to 'black and white' or 'gray scale' images.|
Select a conversion method from the drop-down list of options:
|12.||Select the smoothing options for 'colored images and the screen' and 'monochrome images' that you would like EscapeE to use when images need to be scaled down in size:|
|13.||Select a 'Shading' option as appropriate: Standard, Fine or Gray-scale. See Shading options.|
In addition, when you have finished setting up the options, you may also choose to create a Shortcut icon that uses all the options you have set by clicking Shortcut... (see Shortcuts - the easy way to construct a command line) or click the Save button to retain these settings after you close the program.
