Convert PS to WMF via Java

Export PS file to WMF within any within any Java J2SE, J2EE, J2ME applications without using Adobe® Acrobat Reader

PS Conversion via C# .NET


Converting a PostScript (PS) file to a Windows Metafile (WMF) 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. It allows developers to create, edit, convert, and manipulate PDF documents in Java applications.

The second step is to use the Aspose.Imaging for Java API to render the JPEG image to a WMF image. Aspose.Imaging for Java is an advanced image processing API that enables developers to create, edit, and convert images in Java applications. It supports a wide range of image formats, including WMF, and provides a comprehensive set of features for manipulating images.

By using the two APIs together, developers can easily convert a PS file to a WMF image in Java. Aspose.Total for Java is a suite of APIs that provides a comprehensive set of features for manipulating documents, images, and other file formats. It includes Aspose.PDF for Java and Aspose.Imaging for Java, as well as other APIs for manipulating Microsoft Office documents, email messages, and more.

Export PS to WMF via Java

  1. Open PS file using Document class
  2. Initialize class object and render PS to JPEG by using Process method
  3. Load JPEG file by using Image class
  4. Save the document to WMF format using save method

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 WMF in a Single File via Java

The API also allows you to export PS file to WMF 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 WMF. 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 WMF format using save method.

Convert PS to WMF With Watermark via Java

Using the API, you can also export PS file to WMF with watermark in your WMF 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 WMF format.

Convert & Rotate PS to WMF File via Java

Using the API, you can also rotate the output WMF 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 WMF File Format?

Windows Metafile (WMF) is a graphics file format commonly used on Microsoft Windows systems. It is typically created by vector graphic editors such as Adobe Illustrator or Microsoft Office Visio. WMF files are designed to be displayed on screens and printed on printers. The format is based on the Windows Graphics Device Interface (GDI) and utilizes a device-independent coordinate system.

WMF files can contain both vector graphics and bitmap images. Vector graphics are defined using mathematical formulas that represent lines, curves, and shapes, allowing for scalability without loss of quality. Bitmap images, on the other hand, consist of pixels arranged in a grid and are suitable for representing complex visual details.

Various programs, including Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Adobe Photoshop, can open and work with WMF files. These programs provide features for editing, resizing, and manipulating the graphics within the WMF files.

It’s important to note that WMF is an older file format, and its usage has decreased over time in favor of more modern formats such as SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) and PNG (Portable Network Graphics). However, WMF files are still supported by many applications and can be converted to other formats if needed.
