Change Image File Type and Compression in VCDemo

3023915

Question / Problem: 

How to change the Image Storage File Type and Compression format used for saving scanned images in VCDemo.

Answer / Solution: 

By default, VCDemo saves bitonal images as single-page TIFF images using CCITT Group 4 compression, and saves color and grayscale images as single-page TIFF images using JPEG compression.

To configure VCDemo to save scanned images using another File Type and/or Compression format:

  1. From the Source menu, select Scanner and choose the scan source to be loaded
  2. Once the scan source completes loading, select Storage Format from the File menu.
  3. Select the desired image type from the File Type drop down list.
  4. Select the desired Compression method from the Compression drop down list.
  5. Click OK.

The following File Type and Compression combinations may be selected:

File Type Compression
TIFF CCITT Group 4
TIFF Uncompressed
TIFF CCITT Group 3
TIFF CCITT Group 3/2D
TIFF TIFF2
TIFF LZW
TIFF JPEG
PDF CCITT Group 4
PDF Uncompressed
PDF JPEG
DCX Packbytes
GIF LZW
PCX Packbytes
BMP Uncompressed
JPG JPEG
CALS CCITT Group 4
PNG Deflate/Inflate

 

VCDemo does not persist Image File Type and Compression settings between sessions.  Closing and opening VCDemo will reset the Image Storage File Type to TIFF and the Compression to CCITT Group 4.
