  Notes:     <>--- required        []--- optional
  (1). Input and Output settings
  -i <input>  Source dwg/dxf/dwf files or directory which contains dwg/dxf/dwf files you want to convert. This parameter can appear several times, such as:
e.g. 1) dwgtotiff -i "c:\my pdf_1.dwg" -i "c:\my2.dxf" -i "c:\my dwfs " -o "d:\myimages"
          Extract dwg/dxf/dwf files which are 'c:\my pdf_1.dwg,'c:\my2.dxf and all dwfs files placed in 'c:\my dwfs to 'd:\myimages'.
  -o <output>   Set destination directory to output result images files, default same as application module directory.
  (2). Image/Page settings
-l <layout type>   It is to set outputting layouts, default is to extract the active layout. The programe supports the following options.
serial parameter symbol

description

1 "ALL" extracting all layouts
2 "ACTIVE" extracting the active layout

e.g. 1) dwgtotiff -i "c:\my1.dwg" -o "d:\" -l "all"
          Extract all layouts of the file "c:\my1.dwg" to "d:\" and save as tiff files.

e.g. 2) dwgtotiff -i "c:\my1.dwg" -o "d:\"
          dwgtotiff -i "c:\my1.dwg" -o "d:\" -l "active"
          Extract the active layout of the file "c:\my1.dwg" to "d:\" and save as a tiff file.
 -w <width>  It is to set the width of the result image file in pixel, default is 800 pixel.
 -h <height>  It is to set the height of the result image file in pixel, default is 600 pixel.
 -x <horizontal dpi>  It is to set the horizontal dpi.
 -y <vertical dpi>  It is to set the vertical dpi.
  -q <image quality >  It is to set the quality of jpg/jpeg, from 1 to 100.
 -b <color depth>  It is to set the number of bits per pixel with 1, 4, 8 and 24, default is 24.
-c <tiff compression mode>  It is to set the tiff compression mode. The program supports the following mode.
serial parameter symbol

description

1 "NONE" none compression
2 "LZW" lzw compression
3 "JPG" or "JPEG" jpg/jpeg compression
4 "PACKBITS" packbits compression
5 "GROUP4" CCITT Group 4 compression
6 "GROUP3" CCITT Group 3 compression
7 "RLE" rle compression
Default is CCITT Group4 compression for 1bit tiff, LZW compression for 4,8,24bits tiff.
e.g. 1) dwgtotiff -i "c:\my1.dwg" -o "d:\" -m -g -b 8 -c packbits
          Extract all layouts of 'c:\my1.dwg to 'd:\', it is to ouput 8 bits grayscale multipage tiff and the compression is 'PACKBITS'.
 -d <background color >  It is to set image background color(RGB).
e.g. 1) dwgtoimage -i "c:\my1.dwg" -o "d:\" -d 0xff
          Extract the active layout of the file "c:\my1.dwg" to "d:\" and save as a tiff file with red background.
-g  It is to set grayscale image. If you set grayscale image, the progrom only accept 4 or 8 bits color depth, default to set 8bits color depth.
e.g. 1) dwgtotiff -i "c:\my1.dwg" -o "d:\" -g -b 24
          The above command ignore parameter '-b 24', it sets 8bits grayscale and places the result tiff file to 'd:\' automaticly.
-m [multi-page tiff file name]  It is to set the multi-page tiff and convert all layouts of dwg/dxf/dwf file to multi-page tiff. If you set tiff file name, it convert all dwg/dxf/dwf files to one multi-page tiff file name.
e.g. 1) dwgtotiff -i "c:\my1.dwg" -i "c:\my_cads" -o "d:\" -c lzw -m "myret.tiff"
          Extract the file "c:\my1.dwg" and all dwg/dxf/dwf files which placed in "c"\my_cads" to a multi-page tiff file("d:\myret.tiff").
  (3). Other settings
  -r <register>  It is to register program.
  -?  It is to open the help file.
