PDF to TIFF Node

The PDF to TIFF node converts a PDF document to a .tiff image format. When converting a PDF page to an image all of the content will be flattened and rasterized into a separate image for each page of the document. Each page that is created can be sent as individual messages in the workflow or a single packaged zip file. The TIFF image format also allows all pages to be exported into a single multipage tiff file if needed.


General Settings

DPI Resolution – Choose the desired resolution in DPI used to render the page. 72 is the PDF native resolution. When selecting a DPI it's best to follow the below guidelines

Black-and-white documents

    • Lowest acceptable resolution = 200 DPI (equal to “high” fax quality)
    • Conventional resolution = 300 DPI
    • Highest conventional resolution = 600 DPI

Color documents (and color compression)

    • Lowest acceptable resolution = 150 DPI
    • Conventional resolution = 200 DPI
    • Highest conventional resolution = 300 DPI
    • Archive resolution = 600 DPI

Compression – Choose the compression to use when exporting pages. The most standard one is Group 4 Fax, which is optimized for faxing.

Export all pages as a Single TIFF - The TIFF image format allows multiple images to be stored within a single document. When the image is opened in a supported viewer the image  viewer will display page navigation tools just like in the document. This makes it easier to send a large number of pages as a single file instead of multiple files.

Individual Pages: Creates separate HTML file for each page of the selected range


All Pages: all pages in the document

Page Range: set custom range of pages if needed using values separated by commas. For example, to print only pages 2 to 4 & 6 to 12 & 20 of a 30 page document enter “2-4, 6-12, 20″. Documents using Page Labels will require the exact page label to be entered (i.e. iv, v, etc...)

First Page: the first page of the document

Last Page: the last page of the document

Subset: Subset of the currently set page range to print. Choose from the below options


Separate Files: send an individual message payload for each page of the document being converted

Single zip file: send all converted pages packaged in a in a single zip file to the message payload

File name pattern: Enter a filename for the files added to the zip archive. Each name will have the document page number appended to the name entered in this field. Variables may also be used to further distinguish each of the file separations.
