Zan Image Printer v.5.0.5


FeaturesThe Zan Image Printer is installed as a virtual printer driver and allows you to convert printable documents from any application that supports printing into a standard BMP, GIF, JPEG, JPEG 2000, PDF, TIFF, or PNG image. The converted image retains all of the information from the original file and can be easily shared and viewed without the need for the original software. The Zan Image Printer was developed in response to our user's needs and feedback. It is the most advanced and capable virtual image printer driver on the market today.Powerful, easy to use features packed into a small downloadThe Zan Image Printer 5.0 is small. The download size is only 4.1MB, but it contains both 64-bit(x64) and 32-bit(x86) drivers.While the Zan Image Printer is packed with a wide range of powerful features, it is easy to set up, use, and configure.The clean, simple, and intuitive user interface enables you to print to an image file with just a few clicks! Printing with the Zan Image Printer is just as easy as using a regular printer. If you can print to a paper-based printer, you can print with the Zan Image Printer!Vista ready, 64-bit(x64), Terminal Server/Citrix Metaframe supportThe Zan Image Printer works on Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008 (including x64, Terminal Server, and Citrix Metaframe) and supports shared network printing and XP/Vista fast user switching. Simply install the Zan Image Printer on a Terminal Server, and it will be available to all users the next time they log on to the Terminal Server.Multiple printer instances, multi-threaded printing, multiple user sessionsYou can install multiple copies of the Zan Image Printer on your computer, each with its own unique settings. This is a time saver because you can switch between different printer settings easily.The Zan Image Printer is multi-user aware. Users can have their own settings with the printer, or the Zan Image Printer can be configured so that all users share the same settings.If you are printing large quantities of documents, you can even load balance print jobs across multiple Zan Image Printer instances for faster performance.Support for running as an unprivileged "normal" userTo print to the Zan Image Printer, a user does not need to be member of the power users group or the admin group, which improves the security of the system. This makes it easy to deploy the Zan Image Printer in security-conscious network environments.Print to TIFF imageTIFF formats include 1 bit per pixel (monochrome), grayscale, 256 color, and 24-bit true color. Compression methods include CCITT Group 3 (1D Modified Huffman - MH, 2D Modified READ - MR), CCITT Group 4 (Modified Modified READ - MMR), Packbits (RLE), Deflate (Zip), LZW, JPEG, and uncompressed. Support for multi-page, serialized, and appending mode is included. The appending mode allows you to build a multi-page TIFF file by concatenating and merging pages from different printouts. A multi-page TIFF file can even contain pages from different document types.The Zan Image Printer can also be set up to create fax-ready files (TIFF Class F facsimile and Cisco TIFF). With this capability, nearly anything that can be printed can be used in a fax application.Print to JPEG imageThe Zan Image Printer supports saving documents as true color and grayscale JPEG files at a user-selectable quality factor, which is good for photographic or scanned images.Print to PDF fileYou can easily convert any document to a PDF file. The "Append to existing file" option allows you to combine and merge multiple documents into a single PDF file. For example, you can create a single PDF file whose first page was printed from Microsoft Word, the second from Internet Explorer, and the last from Microsoft Excel.Print to BMP imageFile formats include monochrome, grayscale, 256 color, and 24-bit true color. RLE8 compression is supported for grayscale and 256 color images.Print to GIFYou can save as monochrome, grayscale, or 256 color GIF file. GIF is widely used on the Web and is best for images with only a few colors and sharp edges.Print to PNGPNG is a universal format and is supported by all modern browsers. The Zan Image Printer supports monochrome, grayscale, 256 color, and 24-bit true color PNG formats. Choose PNG when you want to use the image for screenshots in Windows or general web graphics.Print to JPEG 2000JPEG 2000 is the new and improved image compression method that replaces JPEG files. It can operate at higher compression ratios, which means smaller files for you.Easy and simple programming interfaceAll options presented in the user interface can be controlled programmatically. The documentation includes numerous VBScript, VB, Delphi, C/C++, VC.NET/CLI, VB.NET, and C# code samples to help you get started quickly!Two programming models are available to developers. Use the Win32 APIs to access the INI setting files directly, or simply call the provided command line utilities from within your application.Developers can programmatically perform batch document conversion (e.g., Word, Excel, or HTML files to image) by printing to the Zan Image Printer. You can even automate batch printing with a script file.Paper sizeAll standard paper sizes (A4, Letter, Legal, A0, etc.) are supported. In addition, the Zan Image Printer allows you to create user-defined paper sizes. Printing on a large paper size can be done in seconds when printing in Black & White mode. This is especially useful for CAD users.DPI ResolutionsA wide range of DPI resolutions are supported:50 x 50, 60 x 60, 75 x 75, 100 x 100, 120 x 120, 150 x 150, 200 x 100, 200 x 200, 240 x 240, 300 x 300, 360 x 360, 400 x 400, 600 x 600, 720 x 720, 1200 x 1200, 2400 x 2400.204 x 98, 204 x 196.72 x 72, 96 x 96, 144 x 144, 288 x 144, 288 x 288.240 x 144, 240 x 288.240 x 216800 x 600, 1200 x 600, 2400 x 600203 x 305600 x 540254 x 254250 x 250, 500 x 500In addition, the Zan Image Printer allows you to define custom DPIs.Informative transparent status dialogThe friendly and informative transparent status dialog displays a wealth of information about the current print job on screen as soon as a print job is started, and it is automatically dismissed after the printout completes.History folder and file name databaseBoth features let you quickly select the previously used folder and file names. Additionally, the user interface provides access to a history list for many other functions.Dynamic file and folder generation based on macrosMacro commands can be used to dynamically define how the file names are generated - without having to manually name each file each time you print.Advanced users can also generate file names based on information within the document being printed by using regular expressions.Print to text file, text extractionThis feature lets you extract text from any printable document and save the text to a separate text file either in addition to or instead of creating the image file. By saving your documents to a text file, you can easily index and search all of your documents that could not be searched previously.Compress and save to ZIP fileYou can package the generated files into an industry standard ZIP archive after creation. This makes it easy to keep related files together and makes storing data faster and more efficient.Automatically Email the printout after creation using DNS MX LOOKUP/MAPI/SMTPThe Zan Image Printer makes it easy to instantly send files after printing them using a variety of configuration methods to match every need. The easiest method of configuring your Email is the DNS MX LOOKUP method, which makes sending Email easy because you do not need to enter information about your SMTP server (or even know what an SMTP server is), and no username/password is required.The Zan Image Printer can even search the document being printed for an Email address, extract it from the text, and then automatically send the Email to that address.You can Email the generated files as standard images or as a ZIP file attachment to save bandwidth and make delivery easier and more reliable.BMP watermarks and text annotationThis gives you the ability to watermark and copyright generated images. You can mark your document with text strings, which can include user-defined text, the filename, the Bates Number and many other macros. You can also create and select your own custom BMP graphic to be used as a watermark. The Zan Image Printer even allows you to use bitmaps with transparency and define the opacity of the watermark.Printer redirectionThe print job can be redirected to physical printers after the image is generated. This allows you to have both a hard copy and electronic copy of all original documents, or it allows you to store a record of all documents that are printed out.Upload generated files to an FTP serverWhen this option is enabled, the resulting files are automatically sent to your server after printing finishes using FTP. This makes it easy to automatically back up your data and share the generated files on a centralized server.Call the default viewer or run a user-specified applicationYou can specify whether the Zan Image Printer should launch the default image viewer or run one or more applications for all generated image files at the end of printing. This feature allows you to automate batch image processing easily.Image rotationRotate the page 90, 180, or 270 degrees clockwise. This is useful for fax application.Image scalingImage scaling allows you to reduce the generated image to a specific pixel dimension for processing or distribution.InvertInvert the image, changing it from black to white, or white to black, which produce a negative of the image.Trim white bordersTrim the white margins or borders around the image.Show a dialog before printing startsYou can optionally display a pop-up dialog box before each print job. The pop-up dialog box can be either the Save As Dialog or Image Printer Dialog. You can also configure the Zan Image Printer to suppress all pop-up dialog boxes to operate in silent mode. This is the best way to force the Zan Image Printer to always use a single specific setting, and it is great for automated batch printing.The following lists ways our customers use the Zan Image Printer:# Produce an image for medical diagnostic purposes/medical record services; capturing of medical billing files# Batch plot multiple AutoCAD .dwg files to JPEG, TIFF, or PNG# Convert HTML files to TIFF or JPEG# Batch print PDF files to TIFF# Batch print Email messages to TIFF# Create PDF files from any printable document# Make a Microsoft Word document an image; batch convert Microsoft Office files to TIFF, PDF, or JPEG# Concatenate and combine all pages of multiple documents into a single TIFF/PDF file# Produce invoices to send in an Email to clients# Convert documents (PDF, Word, etc.) to standard TIFF Fax format# Print the music scores as a TIFF, JPEG, or BMP file# Use the Zan Image Printer as the "Send to OneNote 2007" print driver on Vista x64# Convert eBooks to a slideshow and read them with a DVD-player# Extract text from genealogy databases# Set up the Zan Image Printer as a shared network printer on Windows Server 2003 and print text documents from a Unix server# Electronic documents, and document management
