NConvert EPS->PNG : DPI question

Post by Bingo » Fri Sep 10, 2004 7:13 am

Hello !

It is my second try with nconvert to automate eps to png conversion.
The first time, I had problem with the transparent colors in the EPS not being converted to white in the PNG, buit to a more or less gray color.
I want to give this a second try (imagemagick's mogrify is just too sloooooow), but now I just can't find a way to specify the DPI for the output !
Inputs are in EPS format, so outputting without a DPI value doesn't make sense !
I tried :
nconvert -out png -dpi 150 toto.eps
nconvert -out ong -dpi 10 toto.eps
nconvert -out png toto.eps
and all with the same result ! The dpi value doesn't change the size of my PNG !
What am I doing wrong ?

Thanks a lot !

Arnaud

OK I have some hints !
The eps is recognized as a tiff I think :?
C:\temp>nconvert -v -out png -dpi 50 toto.eps
** NCONVERT v4.22 (c) 1991-2004 Pierre-E Gougelet (Jul 7 2004/09:58:01) **
Version for Windows NT/9x/2000 (All rights reserved)

A TIFF (RGB) - Rle was recognized : toto.eps
Width:1192 Height:1875 with 16777216 colors
Nplanes : 1 Bitscount : 24
Bytes Per Plane : 3576
xdpi : 36 ydpi : 36
A PiNG was writen : toto.png
Width:1192 Height:1875 with 16777216 colors

Conversion of toto.eps into toto.png OK
When I try to force input to eps :
C:\>nconvert -v -out png -in eps -dpi 50 toto.eps

Error: Don't know how to read this picture (toto.eps)
I am quite puzzled now .... :?

Yes, your file seems to be a TIFF file. Are you sure that it's an EPS?
Or EPS with TIFF preview??

Yes, it is an EPS with a TIFF preview.
But I think I can't help that ! It is generated automatically by another software...

NB : I used the same EPS, when I first tried nconvert, and this did not happen... :?
