Saving Files

Top  Previous  Next

The Fax Tif View can be used to save images which have been modified, save images from one compression type to another, and also to change images from one file format to another (TIFF to JPEG, for example).


Saving changes to an image file


Changes made to an image file can be saved using the File - Save As/Export menu item.



Press Advanced... button to set advanced options.

Depending on the image format, a dialog box will be displayed prompting for format specific details.



Saving a TIFF file to use a different compression


Changing the compression for a TIFF file is easy using the Able Fax Tif View.

Simply use the Save As/Export feature of the Fax Tif View and press Advanced... button, which will bring up the following window:



The compression method to be used can be specified in the Compression section of the above window.

Once you have made your selections, press OK to save the file with the new settings.


If you want to save all your TIFF files with the same compression, you can go to user settings

Settings - User Settings - Saving tab

Tiff compression

Use default compression = ON

and select the desired compression for color and black-and-white images.



In this case, when saving the file, you do not need to press the Advanced button.

The specified compression will be applied to all saved TIFF files.



Saving an image file as a different image format


The Fax Tif View can be used to convert images from one file format to another.

In order to convert files to a different file format, use the Save As/Export menu item from the File menu:



Select the desired file format type from the Save as type drop down box.

Navigate to the desired folder, select file and then press Save, or type a new filename to be created.


If you specify an existing file, you will see the following window:



Press No to select a different file or filename, press Yes to save to the selected file.


Depending on the file type selected, you will have to specify additional details in a Advanced dialog box




Saving a single page from the multipage file as a image file
