doc2pdf –b 1 –i C:\file-in.txt –o C:\file-out.jpg
Here we take “JPG” is the example of output image.
In the command line,
doc2pdf stands for the called program and you should use its path when you input the command line,
–b 1 specifies the color depth as 1-bit.
–i C:\file-in.txt stands for the path of source file.
–o C:\file-out.jpg is the name of target file.
In the command line, you can also change the number of the color depth as 8 or 24 to set the color depth as 8-bit or 24-bit.
