File Format

File Format tab provides the list of output file formats. All of them can be used as target format for file generation by ImagePrinter Pro, and each has its own additional settings.

Radio buttons in the Color section allow to set color mode of the printed image: monochrome, 256 colors, grayscale, etc. Available modes depend on the chosen output format.

If Extract text to file is enabled, Encoding dropdown list allows to choose text encoding: ANSI or UTF-8, and End-Of-Line dropdown provides a selection for end of a line symbol: Windows-type, Unix-type or None (all the text will be put into one string).

For a complete description of all the formats, see the table below.
