How to rotate the page when converting WMF to TGA?

TGA (Truevision Graphics Adapter), or TARGA (Truevision Advanced Raster Graphics Adapter), is a graphic file format that can be used to store and inter-change deep pixel images, paint, and image manipulation programs that need to store image data of up to 32 bits per pixel. Today, TGA format is the most universally supported format. unlike most other graphic file formats, it has relatively few variations. This well-defined format is also fast and easy to read and decompress. It is widely used by the animation and video game industry and is also popular for still-video editing. WMF or Windows Metafile has been designed to be portable between applications, and it is supported by various programs, including Microsoft's Windows Photo Viewer, which is included in Windows 7.

3. Enter a command line

3.1First, in order to rotate the page when converting WMF to TGA, the command line should consist four factors as illustrated in the follow command line pattern.

htmltools -rotate <int> <WMF file> <TGA file>

  • the executable file ---- htmltools
  • the command ---- -rotate <int>, which can be used to rotate the page through the angle of 90,180, or 270 degree.( int refers to integer and the angle brackets <> are often used to mark the essential content.)
  • the input file ---- WMF file(s)
  • the output file ---- TGA file(s).

Second, when you enter a command line, you’d better use directories to represent files.

Take the command line illustrated below as an example, the directories rather than the bare file names appear in the command line. This is because computer could not recognize the file names without the appearances of the directories.

D:\htmltools\htmltools.exe –rotate 90 C:\in\*.wmf D:\out\*.tga

  • D:\htmltools\htmltools.exe is the directory of the executable file. It indicates that the executable file htmltools.exe is in the folder htmltools on disk D.
  • -rotate 90 is the command that can be used to rotate the page clockwise through the angle of 90 degree. The number 90 can be substituted by 180 or 270.
  • C:\in\*.wmf is the directory of the input files. The wildcard * represents all the input WMF files in the folder in on disk C.
  • D:\out\*.tga is the directory of output files. In the example, TGA is specified as the output format. And the whole directory indicates that all the output files should be placed in the folder out on disk D.

3.2.Enter your command line

If you still feel difficult to understand how to enter a command line, you can just replace the directories in the above example with the directory of the executable file, the input file and the output file in your computer. You can also change angle degree 90 in the command line if it is necessary.

4. Press “Enter”
