Pre-printing preparation of images
Pre-printing preparation of images is a rather difficult process, especially if there are many images to be processed. To prepare images for printing, you will need to specify DPI, standardize their type and resolution, change colors to meet the desired criteria, add author's signature, and probably name images according to their order. It is unsuitable to do all this manually, so polygraphic workers need a program allowing to perform all these actions with many images in a couple of mouse clicks.
Here is a sample of converting a group of images changing their DPI to 600 and resolution to 2400x3600 and saving them in TIFF format.
- Launch Image Converter Plus. Go to "Photos" tab, select and add images you want to process.
- Go to Profiles tab. In "Operation before save: Add operation" line, click "Add operation" and select "Resize" from the menu.
- Click "+" mark located to the left from "Add operation" line to open the group of settings for added operations.
- In "Resize", specify the needed value of "Horizontal Resolution" (in our case, it is 300 pixels/inch). "Use as horizontal" checkbox connects horizontal and vertical resolution and should be enabled in most cases.
- Go to Profiles tab. In "Operation before save: Add operation" line, click "Add operation" and select "Watermark" from the menu.
- In "Watermark", specify the path to the file used as a logo in "Apply watermark from file" line.
- Select horizontal and vertical alignment in "with horizontal alignment" and "with vertical alignment" lines.
- Select horizontal and vertical offset in "with horizontal offset" and "with horizontal offset" lines.
- In "Save images in .... format", specify the format you need (for example, Jpeg).
- Specify output format settings (optimal values are specified by default).
- Specify the folder to save converted images to.
- Specify other settings.
- Press "Start" button to start conversion.
