Default PIC

Kram,

If you're running any Windows 9x or higher you can usually find some share- freeware that convert pdf back to text.
To what standard format it converts pictures contained in such text I wouldn't know.
BTW,I just notice that you can post any file extension.
Must respect the size limit though.


Fcel,

Thks,if it keeps on bugging me I'll ask.
I tried today with no succes though.
Meanwhile I try to trace the source of these pix through the internet which can be a PITA admittedly.

Cheers,

I used paint shop pro 7 made by Jasc software, its just the trial version so it probably wont work in a months time any way.

this is what i did,
open up the schematic pdf. take a screen shot then pasted the screen shot into paint shop, edit screen shot to remove bits you dont need then save as .jpeg, then post on forum.

Peter Daniel,
paint shop will convert file types for you when you save. I dont know of anyother way of doing it, Win98 (which i use) didnt come with any programs that will convert various picture files into others as far as i know.

Peter,

I have a little shareware pic viewer called ACDSee 32. Itís the best pic file manager Iíve seen. It has almost no editing features, but you can view and save to anyone of a couple dozen different formats (including all the popular formats), and itís fast.

Unfortunately, the company has grown out of the shareware stage and no longer offers the shareware versions on its site (of the same name). I have the shareware program. It is a 2Mb self-extracting zip file. Let me know if youíre interested.

Kram,

When posting schematics, or any other pictures with small number of collors (and larger areas covered in the same color), like black lines on white background , it's always better to save them as .GIF files.

In that case they will occupy much less space. I don't know about PainShop Pro, but try when saving to save it as a .gif, and choose (if there is such an option) Grayscale with maybe 8 or 16 colors max. I saved your 37KB .jpg as 8 color Grayscale .gif and got 19 KB picture

Gif is good because it won't blur your image (by default)

Thumbs up IrfanView

Rod,

You might try IrfanView

It's freeware! Also you can convert to many other formats.

It's damn FAST!
