Convert PDF file to Fax TIFF file by special options


I'm evaluating pdf2img.exe command line image converter to convert PDF to tif - fax files.

I need to generate multi page, CCITT-G3/G4, 200x200, 1728X2200, min-is-white files.

problem 1: when I put "-multipage" the output files is always generated in CCITT-G4 mode (even for compress types 3,88882 & 88883), this is normal?

problem 2: I need the file to be min-is-white, the actual files are interpreted whit black and white reversed. how to make min-is-white files?

Can you please send to us your sample PDF file for checking? after we checked your sample PDF file, we will create a test package with some examples to you shortly.

We have lots of experience on Fax TIFF files, please refer to following web pages for more information, we can use different halftone and dither technologies to save ink and time for Faxable TIFF files,


Please refer to Fax TIFF options in the new version of pdf2img.exe application, see Red text lines,
