Print Image on Desktop Printer Using GDI+

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.

// You can automatically send copy of each image file produced by
// Universal Document Converter from your application using GDI+.
// You must initialize GDI+ in your InitInstance() function using
// "GdiplusStartup(...)" and release it in your ExitInstance()
// function using "GdiplusShutdown(...)".
#include "Winspool.h"
#include <atlconv.h>
#include <gdiplus.h>
