ASCII with Images export only creates grayscale images as JPEGS and not TIFF images

Description


When exporting grayscale images out of a PaperVision Capture job, image files are in JPEG format instead of TIFF format.

Summary


Although a grayscale image is “colorless,” it is still considered a color image, and not black and white. TIFF files generally are not a color image file format. To export to a grayscale image in a TIFF format, one of the following conversion types will need to be defined during export (see the user guide for conversion descriptions):

  • private const ConvertFileType CONVERSION_TYPE = ConvertFileType.CVT_TIFF_G4_MEDJPG;
  • private const ConvertFileType CONVERSION_TYPE = ConvertFileType.CVT_TIFF_G4_LZW;
  • private const ConvertFileType CONVERSION_TYPE = ConvertFileType.CVT_TIFF_NONE;
