Convert AI to JPEG

Sep 27, 2006 5:22 AM

Hi All,
We have a requirement to programatically convert AI files to JPEG files. (But not as a plug-in). Can this be done using the Adobe AI SDK? If so, could any one provide any pointers on how to do it? If not, what other ways are available for programatically converting AI to JPEG? Are there any other 3rd party SDK which can do this?

Thanks
CS

    What I have found that works best and I am currently still looking for something easier by the way. But what I do is I open the Adobe Illustrator file, select all, copy everything, then open a new clipboard file in adobe Photoshop and paste it in there then I save m as a jpeg format. So far that has worked but it is still time consuming. So if all else fails you can try this it works for me.

    E-spec has a plug-in that extracts the layers as jpegs. http://www.e-spec.net

    What language are you planning on writing the stand-alone application in? If you save the illustrator file with PDF compatability(on by default), any of the several PDF libraries should be able to rasterize the file as a generic image, which you can then convert to whichever format you desire.

    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for the same solution, with no luck so far.
    I need to convert a pdf to jpg using classic asp/vb...

    Other modules/team is dependant on this code, so I need to get this done asap.

    Any luck with using Ghostscript in asp code?? I dont know how to use it in classic asp. Any pointers will be helpful.

    Thanks,
    Heena

    Hi Guys,

    My requirement is also similar. i want to display the .ai images on the web. Is there any tool which gets internally converted? i went through an article

    Thanks

    The Illustrator Scripting API provides functions to export documents to swf, jpg, gif, png, psd and svg and you can script Illustrator in JavaScript, VBScript and AppleScript. These scripts can either be run from Illustrator File > Scripts > Other Script menu or from the file system, provided the correct context is set up in the script. There are several sample scripts provided in the Illustrator install folder to use as reference. Not sure this is feasible for your application but it is another option.

    Hi CS,
    Exactly, same problem, I got here, May be this discussion is older but useful for others.
    I am using here ImageMagick and Ghostscript in command line with programming. I am able to convert AI file format to JPEG. But got error in some of AI files which has Post Script as format PS,Some of AI files with format PS/PDF are converted with no error, but some particular AI files are not.
    I got this error while using Ghostscript,
    Error: /undefined in Adobe_level2_AI5
    I tried lots of option but always got this error for particular type of AI files.

    Any helps!
    Thank you.

    If you open the file up in AI and then save as for Web & Devices ( File>Save for Web & Devices) You can select GIF, JPEG OR PNG.
