Command-line image converter - the flexible way of image processing!
ReaConverter features extensive support for command-line image processing of over 400+ image formats including JPG, TIFF, PDF, EPS, AI, PS, EMF, WMF and RAW photo formats.
This feature is primarily intended for specialists, power-users and developers. However, it can also be a real plus for any technically experienced person working in the field of digital imaging.
Command line image converter is an advanced feature meant for professional use, and, therefore, is available in ReaConverter Pro edition only.
The advantages of command-line image processing:
ReaConverter has an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) which is good but not at all appropriate for some complex tasks, and multiple images processings can be among them. In such cases you can turn its user-friendly graphical interface to professional-friendly by running ReaConverter from the command line or by using command (batch) files.
Just a few examples when command line image converter is just irreplaceable:
Using Command-line Image Converter:
Below you will find the description on how to convert image files from the command line using ReaConverter command line tool, namely cons_rcp.exe.
Cons_rcp.exe allows you to run image editing and conversion directly from the command line, command (batch) files, or through third party applications.
The tool deals with configuration (.cfg), action (.act) files. A configuration file contains information on the output format and its settings, destination folder, additional settings, file options, file name modifications, conversion options (transparency color, loading settings, etc.), and, optionally, information on the file list (.lst file). An action file takes care of the actions you need to apply to your images. Both configuration and action files can be saved in ReaConverter as well as in any text editor. However, we recommend saving them directly in ReaConverter as it minimizes the risk of mistakes.
Cons_rcp.exe accepts the following command line parameters:
cons_rcp.exe <config.cfg> [actions.act] [/hide] [c:\test1.bmp ...]
The required parameters:
cons_rcp.exe <config.cfg>, where:
The optional parameters:
[actions.act] [/hide] [c:\test1.bmp ...], where:
If you need to edit .cfg and .act files saved in ReaConverter, or create them yourselves using some text editor, please refer to our help topics for detailed information on format of these files and accepted commands.
