Ghostscript was launched as an open source software technology and has evolved over In addition to interpreter/rasterizer capabilities, Ghostscript offers full. Ghostscript (gs) worked better than pdf2ps and convert for me. Quality was hardly degraded and file size is small. gs -dSAFER -dBATCH. I have now found that the rasterizer of ghostscript simply did not work for me, maybe because of font issues. And convert, another solution.

This can be used to obtain more saturated colors for graphics. On TrueType fonts, this is often a hollow sqaure. This must be an absolute path. Ghostscript was originally coded that way, and the heritage remains within the code base. Please note that this discussion relates to devices which produce a bitmap format as the output.

This is useful when converting an EPS file to a bitmap.

ICC profiles are sometimes embedded by applications to convey the exact input color space allowing better color fidelity. This may include any extra bleed area needed to accommodate the physical limitations of cutting, folding, and trimming equipment. Occasionally you may try to read or print a ‘PDF’ file that Ghostscript doesn’t recognize rasteeize PDF, even though the same file can be opened and interpreted by an Adobe Acrobat viewer.


For the official description of the EPS file format, please refer to the Adobe documentation in their tech note If the “directory” name ends with a colon “: Due to the extended search method, Ghostscript uses GenericResourceDir only as a default directory for resources being not installed.

This controls fonts being embedded into a document – either fonts or CID font resources. What I need to install and where in order to use substitute fonts?

For instance, to direct all output into the file ABC. This may be needed to ensure consistent rendering on the ghostsript with different fonts, for instance, during regression testing.

Post as a guest Name.

Another method is possible using the composefont operator. Ghostscript will process the input file s without interaction.

Refer to licensing information at http: Note that this switch must precede the name of the first input file, and only its first use has any effect. For actual printers, either the entire InputAttributes dictionary should be replaced or the range type entry should not be included. As noted above, when using MS Windows console command.

Because PDF files enable random access to pages in the document the PDF inerpreter only interprets and renders the required pages.

Font-name-to-file-name mapping given in Fontmap files; aliases are possible, and there need not be any relation between the font name in the Fontmap and the FontName in the file. Rasterlze fonts are Ghostcsript resources containing a large number of glyphs e. Method 1 generated a very fuzzy image, while method 2 worked perfectly.


The build system will cope with the file being removed, and the initialization code will avoid adding the internal fall back mapping if the file is missing.

This may appear as white or black rectangles where characters should appear; or characters may appear in “inverse video” ghsotscript instance, white on a black rectangle rather than black on white.

Rastedize processing the files given on the command line if any it reads further lines of PostScript language commands from the primary input stream, normally the keyboard, interpreting each line separately.
