Image processing allows you to:

use the Copy To feature to copy each page of the document to a larger or smaller page

use the Resample options to change the size of the output image

The options shown here are applied to each page of the file after any previous processing, such as Page Processing, FAX/TIFF or Watermark options, are applied.

Copy To

Sets any copying options you want to apply to the outgoing pages

The concept of image copying is similar to enlarging or shrinking a page using a photocopier, with the added ability to position the page on the new image using the scaling and alignment options.

For instance, you could output an Tabloid-sized page, 11"x17", and copy it to a 8.5"x11" sized image with the original page contents centered on the new image.

Copy To:

Check this box to enable the Copy To options.

Units:

Determines the unit of measure used to enter any Image Size and Image Area Margin dimensions. Choose English to enter the cropping measurements in inches or Metric to enter the units in centimeters.

You can enter units with up to three digits of accuracy, or to an eighth of an inch (0.125in or 0.318cm).

Image Size:

The Width and Height are the actual dimensions of the new image.

Image Area Margins:

Enter the desired Left, Right, Top, and Bottom image area margin settings for the new image The original page will be copied inside this area using the scaling options as selected.

The combined Left and Right image area margins must be less than the Width of the new page. The combined Top and Bottom image area margins must be less than the Height of the new page.

Image Scaling:

Determines how the original page is placed on the new image.

Fit to Page will scale the original page to fit on the new image size chosen, scaling up to a larger image or down to a smaller one as needed. Pages will maintain their aspect ratio if the Maintain page aspect ratio check box is checked.

Actual Size keeps the original information at the same size. Any part that does not fit on the new image size will be cut off. If Shrink page if larger than image size is checked, then you also have the choice of maintaining the aspect ratio.

Shrink page if larger than image size

Scales the image down to fit the new image size fax paper if the original image is larger.

Maintain page aspect ratio

Turn this option on to prevent distortion when scaling larger or smaller image to different image sizes. When this option is on, the height and width of the page change in relation to one another.

Horizontal Alignment:

Choose how to horizontally align the incoming image.

Left will align the left side of the image to the left side of the new image.

Middle will center the image in the horizontal middle of the new image.

Right will align the right side of the image to the right side of the new image.

Vertical Alignment:

Choose how to vertically align the incoming image.

Top will align the top of the image to the top of the new image.

Middle will center the image in the vertical middle of the new image.

Bottom will align the bottom of the image to the bottom of the new image.

Resample

The Resample feature allows you to scale the output file to a particular width and height in pixels, as a percentage of the original size, or by setting a new image resolution (DPI).

These options override any settings you may have chosen in the Advanced Options Dialog.

 

Pixels

Enter in the new Image Width in pixels. If Lock aspect ratio is on, the Image Height will automatically be calculated to prevent distortion of the image.

Uncheck Lock aspect ratio to enable the Image Height field and specify an height for the image.

Percentage(%)

Enter in the new Image Width(%) as a percentage of the original page size.  You can scale images up to 500% larger, but note that if the image is very large to begin with, it may not scale successfully due to memory limitations. If Lock aspect ratio is on, the Image Height(%) will automatically be calculated to prevent distortion of the image.

Uncheck Lock aspect ratio to enable the Image Height(%) field and specify an height for the image.

Resolution(DPI)

Enter in the new X Resolution for your image.  You can scale as low as 50 DPI and up to as high as 3600 DPI. If Lock aspect ratio is on, the Y Resolution will automatically be calculated to prevent distortion of the image.

Uncheck Lock aspect ratio to enable the Y Resolution field and specify an height for the Y resolution of the image.

Lock aspect ratio

Constrains the image height and width so the image does not get distorted when resampling.
