htmltools.exe stands for the called program which can be seen in the installation folder of HTML Converter Command Line.
–rotate value is the parameter about the rotation angle which can be set as 90,180 and 270.The source file will rotate according the value clockwise.
www.verypdf.com can be seen as source file.
output.jpg is the target file.
The following example will be a good interpretation to the command line above for your better understanding.
"C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Local Settings\Temp\htmltools\htmltools.exe" -rotate 180 www.verypdf.com very.jpg
"C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Local Settings\Temp\htmltools\htmltools.exe" is the path of htmltools.exe.You can drag htmltools.exe from the folder into cmd.exe dialog box for convenience.
-rotate 180 is the rotation angle which is set as 180°.
