Converting graphics formats

Go to home page. There are two kinds of PostScript files: The most important gsviee is that EPS images contain a bounding box definition which tells the minimum rectangular box that encloses all the graphics content of the file. LaTeX needs the bounding box when it places the image in the document.

Bounding box tells LaTeX how much space the figure takes on the page.

If you check the option “Automatically calculate Bounding Box”, GSview finds the bounding box automatically. If you uncheck it, you get a chance to set the bounding box dimensions by clicking with mouse. The bitmap should be first converted to png or jpg using for instance Microsoft Paint.

Then you can fsview a command line tool from MiKTeX called bmeps converh this:. You can also print to file using PostScript printer driver from your graphics program. However, this approach often produces incorrect bounding boxes. This way you can get an EPS file from any Windows program that can print. The quality may vary. You may not always get the best cknvert quality. When installing the driver, select the FILE port.

This way the printouts are always directed into a file. Remember to choose Fsview in the printer settings: Click Advanced in the printer properties. Then expand the “PostScript Options” group. You can also use any other PostScript printer and print to file. But some printers write bad PostScript files and you may get into troubles with them. Adobe’s driver is probably the one that creates most standard PostScript files.

As a last resort, when everything else has failed you don’t have the Epx driver or your program can’t printyou can scale the figure to ro size on screen and use the “print screen” button, save the content of the clipboard as a bitmap and follow the Bitmap to EPS path.

Use eps2pdf program, which is freely available from CTAN. With this program you can convert multiple files at the same time. Another way is to use GSview with Ghostscript. Whatever conversion method you use, make sure that resulting PDF encloses the entire ysview without any extra margins. Please compare a well converted image and a wrongly converted image. E;s you would like to use the same images in Microsoft Office programs, like Word or PowerPoint for example for conference slidesyou may need to do some format conversions.

Metafiles are the native vector graphics format in Windows. You can insert them directly in Office documents. In modern versions of Windows you should use enhanced metafiles. Choose “Convert to vector format” from the Edit menu in GSview. This will launch pstoeditwhich can convert PostScript to many kinds of image file formats. Pstoedit has several metafile types available.

The best one is “wemf” “Wogls version of EMF” but unfortunately this is one of the non-free extensions of pstoedit. If you don’t purchase the license, the wemf conversion will distort the colors of fo image.

Pstoedit’s other metafile options don’t need any license but they don’t produce very nice results. If you can’t get a decent metafile using pstoedit, then you can use bitmaps in Microsoft Office.

See the “EPS to other formats” instructions. Word is able to display the PostScript graphics of the file but the quality is not perfect.

Older Word versions may show just a rectangular box. If you print the Word document using a PostScript printer, you will get the original vector-quality image on the paper. If you don’t have a PostScript printer, you may get a jagged figure or just a rectangle. You can use bitmaps for instance in Microsoft Office documents. If the resolution of bitmaps is high enough, you can even print them and get quite good results. Select the needed resolution from the corresponding list or type your own.

If the bitmap will be viewed only on screen, use a low resolution that is approximately equal to the one of your monitor. Usually it is around dpi.

If your bitmap is going to be printed, use for example dpi. Resolutions larger than that are usually not necessary.

Higher resolutions will create very large bitmap files. If your image contains only black color, select a format name that ends with “mono”.

This will create a black and white bitmap. The file size will be smaller because no bits are wasted for color information. Launch pstoedit by choosing “Convert to vector format” from the Edit menu in GSview. A license key is needed for the SVG conversion. Otherwise pstoedit will distort the colors of your image.
