It is a inconvenient to keep file in image format, as we can not check the detail of the image file easily. From the surface, we only can differ the image file by its file name. And it is costly to save the image file as they will take up bigger space than PDF file. If we can convert the image file to PDF and add subject for each then it will be quite convenient to store and check the image file.
If you have the demand in this aspect, please read the following article. I recommend you a software(Image2PDFv3.2) which can nearly convert all kinds of image files to PDF ones. It also provide a command line version of Image2PDF (which allows you to manually issue commands or include them in scripts) as well as a CGI process which will allow, for example, a web site or intranet to convert TIFF or other image files to PDF on the fly. Image2PDF is perfect for high-volume document archive/database systems that require unattended batch image conversions (TIFF or other images) to PDF format.
Then I will show you how to convert the image to PDF and add the subject for it by command line.
- As the software is the main player in the conversion, we should better know more about it and download it here: http://www.verypdf.com/tif2pdf/tif2pdf.htm#dl
- Through the common routine to run MS-Dos. Click “Start”-then “Run”- and input “cmd” in the blanks. Then you will enter the interface of MS-Dos. Please do as the usage shows: Usage: Img2PDF [options] <-o output> <images>
- Drag the software Img2PDF into the windows or input the detail location of software.
- Add the <-o output> <images> to it. -j [subject] : subject so we should –j –o [output file] --> [input file].
- Please see the detail operation in this picture. I take image file 00002.emf for example and name the newly produced file as 3.pdf.
- It will finish the conversion within a second. By checking of the property, we can judge that whether we have added the subject successfully.
