C++ API to Export PS to GIF

Render PS to GIF within C++ applications without requiring any third party application

PS Conversion via C# .NET PS Conversion via Java PS Conversion in Android Apps


Aspose.Total for C++ file format automation libraries allows C++ developer to convert PS to GIF in two simple steps. Firstly, you can use Aspose.PDF for C++ API to convert PS file format to DOC. Secondly, by using advanced Word Document Processing API Aspose.Words for C++ , you can export DOC to GIF.

C++ API to Render PS to GIF

  1. Open PS file using Document class reference
  2. Convert PS to DOC by using Save member function
  3. Load DOC file by using Document class reference of Aspose.Words API
  4. Save the document to GIF format using Save member function

Get Started with C++ File Automation APIs

Install from command line as nuget install Aspose.Total.Cpp or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with Install-Package Aspose.Total.Cpp.

Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .

// load PS file with an instance of Document class reference
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(u"sourceFile.ps");
// save PS as a DOC 
doc->Save(u"DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat::Doc); 
// load DOC with an instance of Document
System::SharedPtr<Document> wordDoc = System::MakeObject<Document>(u"DocOutput.doc");
// save document as Gif

Change Password of PS Document via C++

In the process of rendering PS to GIF, you can open a password protected PS and also change its password. In order to change the password of a PS file, you must know the owner password of that document. You can load password protected PDF document with Aspose.PDF for C++ by specifying its owner password and use ChangePasswords method to change the password.

// load an existing PS Document
auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(L"input.ps", L"owner");
// change password of PS Document
doc->ChangePasswords(L"owner", L"newuser", L"newuser");
// save the document

Restrict GIF File Editing via C++

You can also restrict GIF file editing using using Aspose.Words for C++ API. Sometimes you may need to limit the ability to edit a document and only allow certain actions with it. API enables you to control the way you restrict the content using the ProtectionType enumeration parameter. The following code example demonstrates how to restrict editing in a document so only editing in form fields is possible.

// load Doc with an instance of Document
auto doc = System::MakeObject<Document>("input.doc");
// document protection only works when document protection is turned and only editing in form fields is allowed.
doc->Protect(ProtectionType::AllowOnlyFormFields, u"password");
// save the protected document.

What is PS File Format?

The PS (PostScript) file format is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems. It is commonly used for printing and is supported by a wide range of printers and imaging devices. PS files contain instructions that describe how elements such as text, images, and graphics should be rendered on a printed page.

PS files are created by applications that generate PostScript output, such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, or other graphics software. They are primarily used in professional printing workflows, where high-quality and consistent output is required.

The PS file format is based on a stack-based programming language, where commands and operands are placed on a stack and executed in a sequential manner. This allows for precise control over page layout, typography, color, and other printing parameters.

PS files are typically text-based and can be opened and edited with a text editor. They consist of a series of ASCII characters that represent the PostScript code. The code describes the arrangement and appearance of objects on a page, including text positioning, image placement, and graphical transformations.

While PS files are primarily used for printing, they can also be converted to other formats for digital distribution or further processing. For example, PS files can be converted to PDF (Portable Document Format) files, which are widely supported and can be easily viewed and printed on various devices.

What is GIF File Format?

format known for its ability to support animations and transparency. Developed by CompuServe in 1987, the GIF format has become ubiquitous on the web and is supported by virtually all web browsers and image editing software.

GIF files use lossless compression, meaning that the image quality is not compromised when the file size is reduced. This makes GIFs ideal for graphics with solid areas of color and sharp edges, such as logos, icons, and simple animations. The compression algorithm reduces the file size by identifying repetitive patterns and encoding them more efficiently.

One of the distinctive features of GIF files is their support for animations. Multiple images, known as frames, can be combined within a single GIF file to create a looping animation. This has made GIFs a popular format for creating short, simple, and often humorous animations that can be easily shared and displayed on websites and social media platforms.

Transparency is another notable feature of GIF files. They support both fully transparent and semi-transparent pixels, allowing images to blend seamlessly with different backgrounds. This transparency feature has made GIFs a common choice for creating logos, icons, and graphics that need to be placed on various backgrounds without a visible border or background color.
