Send Image File to Printer Directly

Universal Document Converter is virtual printer software that saves any document you print as a raster PDF or an image file. You can use a post-print feature of Universal Document Converter to apply additional processing to every output file. The example below is just one of many post-print processing solutions. Please let us know if you cannot find the solution you need.

// Some professional printers allow you send image files directly
// without opening in graphics viewer. In some cases you can receive
// better results if you print your drawing to high-resolution
// image file using Universal Document Converter and then send this
// image file to the printer directly.
