Convert PowerPoint to fax by command line

You can use VeryPDF Document Converter to convert PowerPoint to fax compatible TIFF files by command line. Document Converter is the advanced version of Document Printer. Hence, Document Converter is also named as docPrint Pro. Document Converter can print any printable file types to at least image file formats and PDF files.  It provides a command line version and a GUI version.

Please download Document Converter and then install it on your computer. After that, you can find the command line application, which is named doc2pdf.exe, in the installation directory. And this executable file is the tool we are going to use. To convert PowerPoint to fax by command line, please do as follows:

1. Open the command prompt interface

To use a command line application, you can’t just open it by clicking its icon like opening a GUI application. Instead, you need to call the command line application by typing a command line. This is why you need to open the command prompt interface at first. If you are a Window XP, you can do as follows to open the command prompt interface:

  • Open up the Start menu by clicking Start on the left side of the task bar.
  • Point to All Programs.
  • Point to Accessories.
  • Click Command Prompt.

2. Type a command line and press Enter

The second step is to type a command line in the command prompt interface, on the basis of the usage of the executable file doc2pdf.exe. Please take a look at the usage, related option, and some examples before you type a command line.

Usage: doc2pdf [options] <-i Document Files> [-o Output]


    -c <compression>  : compression for TIFF output format
        -c 3          : CCITT Group 3 fax encoding (1d)
        -c 4          : CCITT Group 4 fax encoding
        -c 32809      : THUNDERSCAN compression
        -c 88880      : 204x98 G4 ClassF TIFF
        -c 88881      : 204x196 G4 ClassF TIFF
        -c 88882      : 204x98 G3 ClassF TIFF
        -c 88883      : 204x196 G3 ClassF TIFF
        -c 88884      : CCITT Group 3 fax encoding (2d)


      1. "C:\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe" -c 88880 -i C:\in.ppt -o E:\out.tiff
      2. "C:\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe" -c 88881 -i E:\in.pptx -o D:\out.tiff
      3. "C:\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe" -c 88882 -i C:\in.pptm -o E:\out.tiff
      4. "C:\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe" -c 88883 -i C:\*.ppt -o D:\*.tiff

The option –c <compression>, which can be used to generate fax compatible TIFF files from PowerPoint, must be added to the command line. As you can see in the first three examples, each can generate a fax compatible TIFF from a different PowerPoint format. The last example can convert PPT to fax compatible TIFF files in batch.

Please use this method to convert PowerPoint to fax compatible files as you like. You know, you can also use VeryPDF Document Converter to convert between many other file formats. If you want to get more information about VeryPDF Document Converter, please visit the following website:
