Converting a PostScript (PS) file to an Enhanced Metafile (EMZ) image in Java can be done in two simple steps. The first step is to use the Aspose.PDF for Java API to export the PS file to a JPEG image. Aspose.PDF for Java is a powerful PDF manipulation API that is part of the Aspose.Total for Java package. This package contains a suite of APIs for manipulating various file formats, including PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and more.
Once the PS file has been converted to a JPEG image, the second step is to use the Aspose.Imaging for Java API to render the JPEG image to an EMZ image. Aspose.Imaging for Java is an image processing API that provides a wide range of features for manipulating images, including resizing, cropping, rotating, and more. It also supports a variety of image formats, including EMZ.
By using the Aspose.PDF for Java and Aspose.Imaging for Java APIs, you can easily convert a PS file to an EMZ image in Java. Both APIs are part of the Aspose.Total for Java package, which provides a comprehensive set of APIs for manipulating various file formats. With these APIs, you can quickly and easily convert a PS file to an EMZ image in Java.
Export PS to EMZ via Java
Get Started with Java File Automation APIs
You can easily use Aspose.Total for Java directly from a Maven based project and include libraries in your pom.xml.
Alternatively, you can get a ZIP file from downloads .
Convert PS to EMZ in a Single File via Java
The API also allows you to export PS file to EMZ to a single file. In order to convert all pages, you can first render your PS document to one TIFF file and after that, you can export the TIFF file to EMZ. You can open the input file using Document class and create Resolution, TiffSettings, & TIFF device objects. You can get a single TIFF image using process method of TiffDevice class. Finally, you can load TIFF file using Image class and save it to EMZ format using save method.
Convert PS to EMZ With Watermark via Java
Using the API, you can also export PS file to EMZ with watermark in your EMZ document. In order to add a watermark to you can first convert PS to JPEG and add a watermark in it. In order to add watermark, load an image file using the Image class, create an object of the Graphics class and initialize it with Image object, create a new Matrix object and set translation and transformation to the desired angle and add watermark using Graphics.drawString method. After adding the watermark in your image, you can save the JPEG as EMZ format.
Convert & Rotate PS to EMZ File via Java
Using the API, you can also rotate the output EMZ image as per your needs. The Image.rotateFlip method can be used to rotate the image by 90/180/270-degrees and flip the image horizontally or vertically. The library provides simple methods to perform complex operations while encapsulating all ugly details. You can specify the type of rotation and flip to apply to the image. In order to rotate and flip the image, you can load the converted JPEG image using the Image class and call the Image.rotateFlip method while specifying the appropriate RotateFlipType .

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 EMZ File Format?
The EMZ file format is a compressed file format primarily associated with Microsoft Office applications, such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. It is used to store enhanced metafile (EMF) graphics that have been compressed using the ZIP compression algorithm.
EMZ files contain graphical data in the form of vector-based images, which means they can be scaled without loss of quality. These files are typically created when an EMF file is compressed to reduce its size for more efficient storage and transfer. The compression process helps optimize file size while preserving the original image quality.
To open an EMZ file, it must first be decompressed using compatible software capable of extracting files from ZIP archives. Once decompressed, the resulting file is an EMF file, which can be opened and edited using applications that support EMF graphics, such as Microsoft Office applications or other software that handles vector-based images.
EMZ files are commonly used in scenarios where vector graphics need to be embedded within Office documents or when sharing graphical content that requires smaller file sizes. By compressing the EMF graphics into EMZ format, it reduces the overall file size, making it easier to store, share, and transfer the graphical content.
It’s important to note that EMZ files are specific to Microsoft Office applications and may not be directly compatible with other graphics software. However, many image editing and viewing programs can convert EMZ files to other standard image formats for broader compatibility.
