Aspose.Total for .NET is a comprehensive suite of APIs that provides powerful document manipulation and conversion features for .NET applications. It includes the Aspose.PDF for .NET API, which enables developers to convert XPS file formats to DOC. This API also provides a range of features for manipulating PDF documents, such as creating, editing, and converting PDFs.
The Aspose.Words for .NET API is another powerful component of Aspose.Total for .NET. It enables developers to render DOC files to GIF, as well as a range of other formats. This API also provides a range of features for manipulating documents, such as creating, editing, and converting documents. It also provides features for working with text, images, and tables.
In addition to the two APIs mentioned above, Aspose.Total for .NET also includes a range of other APIs for working with different file formats. These include APIs for working with Microsoft Office documents, such as Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. It also includes APIs for working with images, such as JPEG, PNG, and TIFF.
Overall, Aspose.Total for .NET is a powerful suite of APIs that provides a range of features for manipulating and converting documents. It enables developers to easily convert XPS file formats to DOC, as well as render DOC to GIF. It also provides a range of features for working with different file formats, such as Microsoft Office documents, images, and more.
C# API to Convert XPS to GIF
Get Started with .NET File Format APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
Document document = new Document("template.xps"); // save XPS as a DOC document.Save("DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat.Doc); // load Doc with an instance of Document var outputDocument = new Aspose.Words.Document("DocOutput.doc"); // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Gif outputDocument.Save("output.gif", SaveFormat.Gif);
Decrypt XPS File using Owner Password via .NET
Before converting XPS to GIF, if you want to decrypt your document you can do it by using the API. In order to decrypt the PDF file, you first need to create a Document object and open the XPS using the owner’s password. After that, you need to call Decrypt method of the Document object. Finally, save the updated file using Save method of the Document object.
Document document = new Document("Decrypt.xps", "password"); // decrypt XPS document.Decrypt(); // save the decrypted document as doc document.Save("Decrypt_out.doc");
Create ReadOnly GIF- File via .NET
In order to protect your GIF from editing and to prevent other people from editing sensitive and confidential information in your document, you can also set the protection of the document using the API. You can limit the ability to edit a document and only allow certain actions with it. This can be done using Aspose.Words for .NET API. It enables you to control the way you restrict the content using the ProtectionType enumeration parameter. You can set your document to read-only by using the following lines of code.
Document document = new Document("input.doc"); // apply document protection and set protection password doc.Protect(ProtectionType.ReadOnly, "password"); // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Gif document.Save("output.gif", SaveFormat.Gif);

What is XPS File Format?
XPS, short for XML Paper Specification, is a file format created by Microsoft to represent fixed-layout documents. XPS files contain the content and print settings of a document, making them suitable for preserving the layout and appearance of a document across different devices and platforms.
The XPS format is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language), a widely used markup language for structured data representation. XPS files encapsulate document content, such as text, images, vector graphics, and annotations, in a structured XML format. This enables easy interpretation and rendering of the document’s visual elements.
XPS files are conceptually similar to PDF (Portable Document Format) files in that they both aim to provide a reliable way to present and share documents while preserving their formatting and layout. However, PDF files have gained broader support across different software applications and hardware devices, making them more widely accepted and compatible.
To view and work with XPS files, Microsoft provides an XPS Viewer as part of the Windows operating system. Various third-party applications and tools also offer support for opening, creating, and converting XPS files. However, compared to PDF, the range of software and hardware supporting the XPS format may be more limited.
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.
