ActivePDF Releases Rasterizer v8.1.0

LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA, June 19, 2018 – ActivePDF, the leading provider of PDF automation technologies and digital transformation solutions, recently released Rasterizer 8.1.0 as a stand-alone .NET API that enables developers to convert PDF files to images. Formerly included in an ActivePDF bundled package, Rasterizer is now available for use with a single license, providing a variety of customizable PDF-to-Image functionalities that is easy to deploy in SMB or Enterprise environments.

Easy to install and fully functional, Rasterizer is ready to go “out of the box” or it can be further customized to fit the unique needs of organizations. With Rasterizer, developers can programmatically open a PDF and quickly convert to an image file as a JPEG, TIFF, PNG, BMP, and/or RGB (raw image data). Users can then save the output image file as a byte array or as a physical file.

Here are some key features and benefits of Rasterizer 8.1.0:

  • Create a multipage TIFF image. Specify page ranges for easy viewing of multiple PDF documents as a single image file.
  • Define image size, scale factor, and rotation of file to comply with your company’s policies.
  • Control specific aspects of rendered images such as Dots-Per-Inch (DPI), to manipulate image size and quality level upon output.
  • The Fit-to-Page option enables users to specify width and height of image, adjusting the aspect ratio.
  • Save the output file as a byte array or a physical file, depending on how the image will be used, shared, or stored.

“The amount of positive feedback we received when Rasterizer was first introduced as bundled ActivePDF product made us look at the PDF-to-Image solution in a new light,” says Tim Sullivan, ActivePDF chief architect and CEO. “By releasing Rasterizer 8.1.0 as a stand-alone .NET API, we’ve opened the door for developers and their companies to convert large volumes of PDF files into customized image formats. With just a few lines of code, Rasterizer ensures higher-quality images, while increasing productivity. We’re excited at the prospect of more users experiencing this premier PDF-to-Image solution.”
