Mentioned about Document Converter, it also has two other powerful applications: GUI application and virtual printer application. You can use the GUI application to make batch conversion for it has a friendly user interface which can be easily used and understood. You can use the virtual printer application to scale page size or combine several pages on one single sheet to save paper and ink when you print documents.
Only three steps are enough for converting document of odt to grayscale image if you use doc2pdf.exe and please see the following contents for the conversion.
1. You need to open MS-DOS prompt window in which you can input the command line to run the conversion. Please click “Start” to open start menu and click “Run” in the menu for opening “Run” dialog box. Then please input “cmd” in “Run” dialog box and click “OK” button. You can also take the hot key “Window”+ “R” to help you open “Run” dialog box.
2. The command line to be inputted into MS-DOS prompt window is consisted of four parts: called program which is the command line application doc2pdf.exe, source file which is the ODT document you want to convert, target file which is the grayscale image you want to get and the parameter for setting grayscale image. These elements make up the following command line basic template:
doc2pdf –y –i C:\fileone.odt C:\filetwo.jpg (We can take JPG as the example of output image)
If you don’t understand the command line, you can see the following specific example.
"C:\Program Files\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe" –y -i "C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Desktop\fileone.odt” –o D:\filetwo.jpg
In this command line,
"C:\Program Files\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe" indicates the path of doc2pdf.exe. For your convenience, you can also copy the path and paste it into the command line prompt window or drag the file from its folder into command line window.
–y creates a grayscale image.
-i "C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Desktop\fileone.odt” stands for the path of source file.
–o D:\filetwo.jpg is the path of target file and this is the one specified by yourself.
3. You need to click “Enter” button to run the conversion from the document of odt to grayscale image and the conversion will be finished in a short while.
