Resample PDF with GhostScript. GitHub Gist: instantly share code, notes, and snippets. Ghostscript supports output to a variety of image file formats and is widely used for A collection of such formats (‘output devices’ in Ghostscript. I was trying to reduce the size of pdfs whilst ensuring that they met a certain dpi or ppi for my thesis. Reducing size of pdf with ghostscript.

Many image processing algorithms assume your image is in a linear-light coding.

Convert PDFs to TIF Files

The default is black and no strokewidth. The default gravity is Center for this purpose. This process is iterated until it converges and the final mean is then used to replace the original pixel value. The convert increases my pdf size, even if I use a dpi.

This option sets the caption meta-data of an image read ghostscriot after this option has been given. This option applies a special effect to the image, similar to the effect achieved in a photo darkroom by sepia toning.

This is especially true when you are going to write to an image format rseample as PNG that supports an image offset. Thanks for your hard work, and hope this sheds some light on the issue! Use -stroke and -strokewidth to specify the thickness of the lines. In order to view any detail, the magnitude image typically is enhanced with a log function into what is usually called the spectrum. Simple whiteboard and PDF annotator: If the file name specified via the OutputFile parameter ends with the suffix ‘.

The value used with Hgostscript provides a scaling factor that adjusts the curvature in the graph of the log function. The default ticks-per-second is Blend will average the ghostsscript together ‘plus’ according to the percentages given and each pixels transparency.


Setting -verbose setting, will cause -distort to attempt to output the internal coefficients, and the -fx equivalent to the distortion, for expert study, and debugging purposes. A typical command line invocation is: However for the ‘ displace ‘ compose method, the mask is used to provide a separate Y-displacement image instead. A value of means no change, and any missing values are taken to mean Because the list is processed from left to right, you can achieve this with a single define:. This setting defines the colorspace used to sort out and reduce the number of colors needed by an image for later dithering by operators such as -colorsNote that color reduction also happens automatically when saving images to color-limited image file formats, such as GIF, and PNG8.

Absolute, Perceptual, Relative, Saturation. The FFTW delegate library is required to use -fft. The offset varies from The -set ‘ page ‘ option can be used to directly assign virtual canvas meta-data. The following properties can be set: Change the image size simply by replacing pixels by averaging pixels together when minifying, or replacing pixels when magnifying.

The formula is expressed below. The -border operation is affected by the current -compose setting and assumes that this is using the default ‘ Over ‘ composition method. Refer to licensing information at http: Given one, two or three values delimited with commas: Values of 0 to 2 work as expected, but values 3 and 4 while accepted for compatibility will behave as for 2.

If they are not of the same width, narrower images are padded with the current -background color setting, and their position relative to each other can be controlled by the current -gravity setting. As the value is increased, you can expect a smoother second derivative.

The default value of 8 should be appropriate for most work. For anything other than pages containing simple images the lossy compression of the jpeg format will result in poor quality output regardless of the input. Any patents that do cover the code are invalid in your jurisdiction.


Deeper color maps are automagically coalesced with ghoztscript colors to meet this requirement. Rexample it can remove internal rows and columns of pixels, it is more typically used with as -gravity setting and zero offsets so as to remove a single edge from an image.

The color reduction operators -colors-monochrome-remapand -posterizeapply dithering to images using the reduced color set they created. These are all switch settings on the DMP, and I have configured them for 8-bit data and carriage return exclusively. Please note that the transparency channel is treated as ‘matte’ values 0 is opaque and not as ‘alpha’ values 0 is transparent.

This is the case, for instance, if you open the top cover error E5 on the printer’s display. The ps2write device outputs postscript language level 2.

A pixel is defined as noise if and only if this pixel is a maximum or minimum within the pixel window. A single image name is provided as output for this option.


This option is used with convert for obtaining image or font from this X server. For zero offset and transparent images, the non-transparent parts of the two images will be aligned as close as possible without overlapping. High-level devices In addition to raster image files, Ghostscript supports output in a number of ‘high-level’ formats. For example for operators such as -auto-level and -auto-gamma the color channels are modified together in exactly the same way so that colors will remain in-sync.

Use matte to the change the pixel matte value to transparent. There is no longer any support for creating PostScript level 1 output.
