Export to JPG
I was looking for exporting the ai file to jpg file using the SDK CS4
I was able to export the ai file to jpg file through the plugin based on the some code from the fourms
the issue is i get an html file along with the jpg file when i do a PlayActionEvent
I tried to export from File->Export as jpg where i dont get an html file
I know for sure i have missed some code
i have set AIActionParamValueRef vpb values for FileName, Format, and Extension
error = sAIActionManager->PlayActionEvent(kAIExportDocumentAction,kDialogOff,vpb);
I dont get any error, but along with the jpg the html gets created in the Path i have mention
i just want to omit the HTML file
What are the other settings do i need to set
This exact thing happened to me. If I recall correctly, the 'parm' part of your value perameter block is probably not set up exactly correctly. You might have too little or too much information in there byte-wise. Here's an example of a structure of values that will work for the 'parm' property:
I have a book created (LR4) and cannot get the pages to export as jpg's. I hit the "export book to jpg" button and nothing happens. Does anyone know what the problem could be? I am using a Macbook. Any idea's or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you Dorin for your reply. I am using LR4.2...
If you have any other thoughts of how to fix the issue, I would be most grateful.
Spreads exported from InDesign as maximum quality JPGs have heavy artifacts not present in PDF's with equivalent image compression settings.
Export spread to JPG (max, baseline, 300ppi)
Export spread to PDF (image compression set to JPG, maximum)
Compare both files in Photoshop at 100%
Maximum quality JPGs are significantly artifacted.
Maximum quality JPGs should be identical to PDF images with equivalent image compression settings (and should be virtually indistinguishable from original files sized equivalently in Photoshop (and saved via Photoshop's 'Save for Web').
I'm very familiar with the limitations of JPG's in pre-press work. Please trust that I have legitimate reasons for needing InDesign to export spreads as JPGs with the same image quality as is possible when exporting as a PDF (or using Photoshop's 'Save For Web' function with the source file sized identically as the spread in question.)
exhibit A: spread exported as PDF (compression set to JPG, maximum quality)
exhibit B: spread exported as JPG (maximum quality)
Thank you for running your test!
Since posting (and just before reading your reply), I discovered an additional constraint on replicating the issue:
–it only appears when the linked image has been upscaled* (in my example, 107.1%)
*keep in mind, the PDF was upscaled to the same degree, ruling out it being solely an upscaling issue
–testing at 'even-magnification' scales (i.e. 150%) simply resulted in increased pixelation compared to the same PDF export (see samples below)
–testing at 'odd-magnification' scales (i.e. 101%) generated random artifacts (like those visible in the samples of my initial post)
–as such, this is likely more of a resampling/aliasing issue than jpg-artifacting.
That is, it would seem that upscaled images seem to enjoy a higher-quality resampling method when exported as PDFs.
I'd be curious to see how your test fared with upscaled images.
image scaled at 150%, exported as PDF (compression set to JPG, maximum quality)
image scaled at 150%, exported as JPG (maximum quality, anti-alias**)
**tested with & without anti-aliasing, results were identical
I have searched high and low, and have yet to find a script that will accomplish this task. I am in need of a script that will change Illustrator's default 72 dpi, to 300 dpi so I can print a series of (about 200) respectable looking images. They also need to be exported to jpg.
Is this possible to do in batch?
I have tried countless approaches. The closest I have come is using Graphic Converter Pro, unfortunately it cannot change the dpi from 72 to 300 (as far as I could tell). Any help is greatly appreciated. I have access to Mac OS and Windows. I've been trying to tackle this for quite some time. Thank you!
Hi, thanks for your responses. I do have Photoshop. What I am trying to do is take about 100 .ai files and export them to .jpg. However, they are going to be printed, and any sort of batch export as .jpg I have tried so far has resulted in substantial resolution (72 dpi). I am well aware of how to change the resolution for exporting each file individually, however what I want to do is batch the whole process together. I will try the resizing approach. Thanks both of you!
I'm very new to InDesign. I increased the noise levels in inner glow in 'Effects' to create a textured look to my document (I wanted a paper texture and found this method on Google) but when I exported to pdf or jpg, I realized that my transparency effects completely disappeared. I checked my export settings and the flattening tool has been set to default.
Can someone help me understand what I should do to export that textured effect please?
Export to JPG has never been all that great and stopped trying it a long
time ago. Export to PDF and open that in Photoshop.
I seem to have lost many original CR files after import > developing > export as jpg. I had made selects to develop and then output images as lower rez jpgs. When I went back to the original folders (on an external hd) those CR select files were missing / a gap in the photo sequence now exists and I cannot locate the originals regardless of searches. How is this possible?
Lightroom does not delete your photos unless you specifically tell Lightroom to do so, and this wouldn't happen in an Export operation anyway.
So I don't know how this is possible, but I'm pretty sure it can't be blamed on Lightroom
You need to:
1) check the Recycle bin; or if that doesn't work
2) restore the photos from backups, or if you don't have backups (why not?); or if that doesn't work
3) you can try to download something called an undelete utility and install it and see if it can find these photos (and if you are going to need this step, perform it immediately, do not do anything else on your computer)
Can anyone tell me why lately I have to export to JPG twice before I get any results. It's always worked until today. Sometimes I have to export three times to get any results, very frustrating.

Exporting to a PDF then JPG isn't very efficient when I need to export 67+ JPGs, quality isn't really an issue because they're for the web/email. It's always worked fine until today, I did run/install the InDesign update that popped up last week sometime.
I edited my .NEFs (RAW) and then exported them to JPG for distribution.
I noticed that they needed to be sharpened some more so I sharpened the JPGs.
Since LR does not change the original JPG file, I can I distribute the edited JPGs? The only logical think I can think of is to export them again, to a new folder.
I'm a bit confused by your description. I assume you have a "master" image in .NEF format (a RAW). You then export as JPG. What you've done at this point is create a new file (JPG) for use outside of LR. However, you say you sharpened the JPG. Since that exists outside LR, I'm assuming you resharpened the exported JPG using an external app like Photoshop. Or did you go back to the NEF and sharpen it some more in LR?
In your second paragraph, you mention that LR "does not change the original JPG file" - what do you mean by that? Wasn't the NEF the original file? Or did you import the exported JPG back into LR. If so, then you're missing the LR paradigm. Your NEF is *the* original. There's no need to create a derivative JPG file and put it back into LR. If you want different versions of the NEF, use virtual copies.
When you export, you are essentually going into your "darkroom" and creating a "print" for external use like email, web, or printer. What you have in LR should be the master image and possibly virtual copies of the master that have different edits applied. These are all used to create "prints" via export.
To answer your question, if I understand it correctly, if you have edited a master image (your NEF) then you can export it again (as a JPG for example). You can keep editing the master and re-export it to JPG. This is like creating multiple "prints" from a negative that you keep scratching or whatever to make changes to it (using pre-digital terminology).
W7 Cs6: in a document that contains LINKED eps , when I export to jpg or save as web, the new document contains a low res preview of the img. To resolv it I must embeded de img. operation that delay my task. In OSX we don´t have this problem.
Without knowing anything about your EPS files and your settings nobody can say much...
Sorry if this has been asked before, I take a large number of event images and the usual client request for images being sent to the press is image size rather than resolution, dimensions or other requirements.
Clearly in LR3 if the client has requested 3MB jpg the easy option is to after processing take my Canon 5d mkii RAW file and just hit export to max 3MB jpg.
My question is is it better - ie image quality better - to export by resizing longest edge to approx 3000 px and exporting to jpg which results in a similar file size, though different pixel dimensions? Or are they effectively the same?
Many thanks in advance on best practice....
To tell you the truth, a client asking for a 3MB JPG is a very meaningless thing to do.
Any time you are changing the number of pixels on a side, you are changing the image quality. Any time you are forcing the photo to be a certain size in MB other than the maximum, you are accepting a certain reduction in image quality. Which is worse? It all depends on the original, and how much change you are asking for.
So, that's my answer ... IT ALL DEPENDS.
I've created a radar plot using a 2D Picture Control. However on attempts to export this by using 'Get Image' I end up with a complete white/black (depends on background colour) square box. So in short, the radar plot created out of 2 variables is not visible.
Any suggestions for exporting a .jpg file from a created radar plot from a 2D picture Control?
Thanks a bunch!

Have you tried the Picture to Pixmap function followed by one the Write JPEG Image file?
EDIT: The snippet is a modification of the shipping example. All that I had selected for the snipper were the three VIs and the wires between them. Nothing else was selected. The snippet posted is what I got. (Didn't have the Code Capture Tool installed on the virtual machine.)

I need to export PDF, JPG or PNG images from the mapviewer (Oracle Map client).
How Can I do it?
What I do with xml after calling getMapAsXML function
Any example?There is a request page in the mapviever configuration webpages, there you can send it to the server and get the image in return.
or you can write your own programm to send it to the mapviewer servlet using post and progress the response by yourself. Have a look at the mapviewer documentation pdf, there are some examples on the different possible different xml requests.
To all who continously amaze me with their knowledge of scripting arcana.....here's some lead to transmogrify into gold.
I've ironed out kinks of how to script a batch-export metadata and generate bitmap artwork (of whatever type) for a complicated set of folders holding .ai files. My script finds all of the AI files, exports the metadata to a text file, captures and logs errors without crashing, and opens each file to generate my full-size thumbnail.
Works great, but isn't built for speed. The extraction of the metadata is blisteringly fast, but from what I can see I have to actually tell Illustrator to open the file before I can export the jpg or png, which forces illustrator to render the screen before doing the export.
Is there any way to speed this up? Opening in preview mode (not scriptable?) still results in the calculation of the visibility and blurs, even though they aren't displayed.
Would love to learn that I've made another beginner's assumption...maybe having bridge do it instead might be better?
Only *.psd export has the options for resolution… with the others it's 72dpi and you use scale ( PITA ) so if you do need a given resolution… first you need do the math and export then you need another app to resize… If your *.ai files are pdf compatible ( mine always are ) then you can just open in Photoshop…
I'm new to Illustrator, would really appreciate all the help and tips
I'm trying to create a wallpaper of certains size. I'm creating an artboard with dimentions 1024px by 768 px, all is fine. However, then I export my artwork into jpeg using File -> Export option. I'm getting a file which is 4267px by 3200px. I don't know what I'm doing wrong and it's very frustrating! Would really appreciate any help.
I'm exporting with the following settings:
Color Model: CMYK
Method: Baseline (Standard)
Resolution Depth: High
Options: Anti-Alias and Embed ICC Profile are ticked.
Another question along the lines. Is it better to create a file with the 72 PPI from the beginning or to change it when exporting to jpeg?
Illustrator files have no resolution, as measured in PPI, until the art is rasterized. This means that the only time you can make the art 72 ppi is when you export to JPG. The exceptions would be anything that is rasterized (Object > Rasterize) or any raster effect such as Drop Shadow, any Glow effects, or anything below the fold in the Effect menu. Effects are rasterized according to Effect > Document Raster Effects Settings.
I often find Photoshop does a better job rasterizing than Illustrator. You can open the AI file in Photoshop and rasterize at any resolution, then resample to 72 ppi. I suggest using 288 ppi, which is exactly four time 72 ppi, then either resample or use Save for Web and Devices and scale to 25%.
I'm downloading raw (nef) images to my hard drive from a Nikon D7000 then importing into Aperture 3. I make changes mostly with Enhance within Aperture 3 and using the Color Efex Pro 4 plug-in. Looks great in Aperture and if I export using any of the tiff options. Quality remains the same. But if I export to jpg (any of the options) or open the tiff in Photoshop Elements and convert to jpg I loose quality. The photo looses sharpness. I have a tif and jpg side by side and the difference is huge. I want to upload to my website so therefore need to use jpg but I'm hating how poor the quality is.
Any suggestions? I see other people are having similar issues.
How are you viewing the exported JPG? What is the size of the JPG file?
If you open it in Preview and then go to Tools->Show Inspector you'll get some info on the makeip of the file.
Here is an example of an exporte JPG at quality 12 and original size:
