ImageConverter


Purpose

The ImageConverter converts all images dragged to one of its tiles. The tile's configuration specifies the target format of the converted image. The source format is detected automatically and must not be specified. Supported input formats are bmp, emf, gif, ico, jpg, png, tif, wmf.

Please keep in mind that some formats (especially jpg) do not support transparency. For this purpose you can chosse a replacement color if your source format contains tranparent areas. In composer lines it may be useful to convert jpg images at first to png to support the subsequent transformations if they are rely on transparency effects (e.g shadow, reflection...).
