I’m wondering what the most efficient way would be to convert PDF to TIF with PlanetPress? I’ve got a process that will take in PDF via folder and then needs to produce a corresponding 200 DPI G4 TIF to an output folder.
- I know I could go with the Image module by converting the PDF to PS first then running through the Image plugin to generate the TIF, but that seems like the long way around to get to TIF output.
- I know too that I could create a Design template using the PDF as the data source and then create a output preset as TIF. But again, that seems to add overhead with the whole Connect engine where I just need to convert an incoming PDF to TIF.
- Which then makes me wonder if pulling in a 3rd party graphics tool (like ImageMagick) to run via the command line plug-in wouldn’t be the best option.
I’ll potentially have 1,000’s (or even 10,000’s ) of these to convert an hour so settling on the option with the best potential throughput from the start would be helpful.
Of course, testing will be key, but knowing which direction to initially focus attention on would be helpful.
Thanks in advance!
