You need to be able to open and print your original document in order to create a JPEG image. For example, to create a JPEG from a Word document, you would need to have Microsoft Word, or another application that can open and print Word documents, installed on your computer.
Raster Image Printer 12 uses Profiles, which are a group of settings, to create the output image you want. Raster Image Printer comes with a few system profiles including: Color Optimized TIFF, Monochrome TIFF, Fax TIFF, Serialized Color Optimized TIFF, Adobe PDF, Non-Searchable PDF, and Color Optimized JPEG. To create color JPEG images, simply set the profile “Color Optimized JPEG” as Raster Image Printer’s default profile.
