Conversion parameters

ImageResolution Integer

Set output image resolution in dpi.

ScaleImage Bool

Scale the output image. If ScaleImage is False output document will be stripped to ImageHeight / ImageWidth, if ScalePage is True output document will be scaled to ImageHeight / ImageWidth.

ScaleProportions Bool

Constrain proportions when scaling the output image.

ScaleIfLarger Bool

Scaling only if the input image is larger than the output.

ImageHeight Integer

Image height in pixels.

ImageWidth Integer

Image width in pixels.

ImageInterpolation Bool

Specifies whether the image parser should use image interpolation. Enabling image interpolation will result in higher quality for scaled images at the expense of speed.

PersistAnimation Bool

Read animation values AnimationIterations and AnimationDelay from GIF file. Only works if GIF file is added to file list.

AnimationDelay Integer

Animation delay in milliseconds before playing the next image in an animated sequence.

AnimationIterations Integer

Set the number of iterations to loop an animation. Zero is infinity.
