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.

They are particularly useful for testing or as input to an external conversion utility. This option sets the resolution of the output file in dots per inch.

Bug – Anti-aliasing does not work when reading a PDF

Several different important kinds of measures appear throughout this document: The ps2write device outputs postscript language level 2. When Tumble is true, the pages are oriented suitably for binding at the top or bottom. Notes on measurements Several different important kinds of measures appear throughout this document: You might like to try and see what happens if you change AntiAlias to true, though I doubt this will have an effect as Ghostscrip pretty sure the aniti-aliasing is applied to the internal rendering of the shading, not the edgses.

The names of spot colors may be specified via the SeparationColorNames device parameters. This option sets the resolution of the output file in dots per inch.

These allow Ghostscript to preserve as much as possible the drawing elements of the input file maintaining flexibility, resolution independence, and editability. If a valid bounding box is found EPS formatthen only this area is converted.


Thus to disable writing the TAG, use: This should be the baseline for regression testing. Trapping is an technology area encumbered by many patents. The pngpng16 and pngmono devices respectively provide 8-bit color, 4-bit color and black-and-white for special needs.

R: Graphics Device for Bitmap Files via Ghostscript

Then, for each data point is a line consisting of two space-separated floats – the output value and the input value. We recommend moving to the ijs device for all such printing. If neither sounds appropriate for your system, it’s possible that more porting work is needed.

Merge the requests above with the defaults. Devices include pbm antialkasing pgm pgmraw pgnm pgnmraw pnm pnmraw ppm ppmraw pkm pkmraw antialiasng pksmraw. These data files have the name specified by the “OutputFile” parameter with “sn” appended to the end where “n” is the spot color number 0 to 12 “.

Trapping is a process whereby the output is adjusted to minimise the visual impact of offsets between each printed plane. When using the separation color space, the following options may be set using setpagedevice, as described in the PostScript Language Reference: Here is an example antialiaasing such a setup file: The file specified via the OutputFile command line parameter will not be created it is opened, but deleted prior to finishing each page.

File names for the separations for the CMYK colorants are created by appending ‘. If more than one LUT is specified for a single plane, they are applied in sequence. This site features the following types: Anyway, this method is mainly for vectorial antialiasibg that can be rasterized at a higher density and then get downsized and the downsizing does some sort of antialiasing. As of the 0. Most of the configuration parameters, including resolution, choice of printer model, and linearization curves, are in a separate setup file.


See the comments under the tiffsep and tiffsep1 device about the maximum number of spot colors supported by Ghostscript.

The spotcmyk device has the creation of the binary data files separated from the creation of the PCX files since the source file is intended as example code and many people may not be interested in the PCX format. The default type, “png16m”supports bit colour and anti-aliasing. Note also that if -dSAFER is not specified, it’s possible for PostScript code to set this parameter, so it can cause arbitrary code to be executed.

The background is transparent unless it has been explicitly filled. As for other devices, the product resolution x page size is limited to approximately K pixels. In general all older printer drivers can be replaced by the ijs interface and one of the available 3rd antialiasin raster driver collections. The values for Unix are as follows: When Tumble is false, the pages are oriented suitably at the left or right.

It is recommnded that this device is used for PostScript output. It defaults to g4 for the tiffsep1 device. When Tumble is true, the pages are oriented suitably for binding at the top or bottom.

An enhancement to do halftones is planned as well.
