How to Convert Document to JPG or TIFF image?

Conversion of documents to the PDF format is a frequent necessity, and practically every software that is utilized to create different types of documents and presentations enables the users to do so. But what if the document needs to be converted to an image saved in JPG or TIFF format?

What about the “Print Screen” solution?

One of the solutions you may find online (e.g. yahoo answers IT forum) will be to make a screenshot of the document, paste it to Microsoft Paint and then save it as JPG or TIFF. This is a good solution – you don’t have to pay for it, and it does not require any additional software to be installed.

Still, the resolution of the resulting image file will be 96 or 120 DPI (same as your monitor resolution), while the printer resolution is normally 600 DPI and higher. So, in case you intend to print the resulting file, its quality will be quite poor.

Technology of virtual printing – quick and simple solution to make a high quality copy of the document

The most elegant solution for converting documents to JPEG, TIFF, or PNG is virtual printing technology. It will make the resolution of the resulting image file coincide with printing requirements.

For example, if you need to have a printable copy of the document, you may change the resolution for 600, 1200 or even 2400 DPI depending on the desktop printer resolution in your office or in the print shop.

If you need to send documents via email in a copy protected mode, the quality of the JPEG files with resolution 150 DPI will be quite sufficient making the files small enough to be sent over without clogging your internet connection.

Universal Document Converter

Universal Document Converter is the software that has been developed for virtual printing. This program can convert Microsoft Word documents, Adobe PDF files, Excel worksheets, Autodesk AutoCAD drawings, PowerPoint presentations and any other documents to JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF, DCX, PCX or Bitmap formats. It can also convert the documents to searchable or bitmapped PDF file.

Universal Document Converter provides support for all types of documents. It differs from a regular printer the way it prints the documents – they are not printed physically – they are printed virtually, which means they are converted into any desirable format, but then, of course, you can print them physically, as usual. Universal Document Converter is very easy to use. Once you install it, it becomes an integral part of the toolbar of Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, and converting documents to desirable formats will take place with a couple of clicks.

Universal Document Converter also offers some advanced features, such as placing a text or an image watermark on each page of the converted document. This helps protect your files from illegal use. It’s very useful to copyright your documents if you intend to share them in the internet.

    «It is extremely easy to install and configure and I just love that it functions like a PDF-print function. I was looking for something like this for a long time and no other product could even come close in ease of use and functionality.»
