What are the supported image file types?



The size of an image must be between the ISO A6 and A2 paper sizes. This means that images must be at least 105 mm x 148 mm (4.1 x 5.8 inches) and at most 420 mm x 594 mm (16.5 x 23.4 inches).

The minimum supported resolution for scanned images is 96 DPI. However, the recommended resolution is between 200 and 300 DPI, when possible.

For images, the resolution for scanning and importing should be the same as the resolution for the sample images that were used to train layout classification, trainable group and table locators, or to set up zonal recognition in Project Builder. Faxes are usually scanned by the sender at 200 DPI resolution, whereas for invoices, forms, and mailroom documents, 300 DPI resolution provides the best image quality.

The following image file formats are supported in Project Builder:

  • TIFF (*.tif)

  • JPEG (*.jpg)

  • PNG (*.png)



Kofax Capture does not support PNG or JPEG images. However, it is still possible to use JPEG images in production. If you load JPEG images into the Kofax Capture Scan module, these images are converted to TIFFs and then processed as normal.

PNG files can be used for testing in Project Builder. The only way to use PNG files in production, is to convert them to a supported PDF or TIFF format in another application.
