160-050 MetaServer Convert – Convert to Multipage TIF

​With MetaServer’s Convert to Multipage TIF action, you can convert any of the supported file types to multipage TIF.

To output the converted TIF:

Step 1: You add the Convert to Multipage TIF action(s) just before the Export action(s) used to output the converted document.

Step 2: In your Export action(s), select “Processed PDF” or “Processed TIF” as the File source. More about that later.

To add the Convert to Multipage TIF action, select the action after which you want to insert the Convert to Multipage TIF action and press Add -> Convert -> to Multipage TIF. The Setup window will automatically open.

You can also open the setup window of an existing Convert to Multipage TIF action by double clicking it or pressing the “…” button on the right side of the action, as shown below.

In our example, we will make use of the “CB – QUESTIONNAIRES” workflow. This workflow is automatically installed with CaptureBites MetaServer.

01 – JPEG Compression: this value indicates the JPEG compression level of your document. You typically set the same JPEG compression as used in your scanner settings, but we don’t recommend a lower value than 70. The default value, 82, is based on Kofax’s default JPEG compression.

A low value will generate a smaller file size but will decrease the image quality.

IMPORTANT: If you have set a specific JPEG Compression in your Import from Folder or Import Email action, the JPEG Compression (Q-Factor) used within the Convert to Multipage TIF action will take precedent.

TIP: you can copy the current settings and paste them in another setup window of the same type. Do this by pressing the Settings button in the bottom left of the Setup window and by selecting Copy. Then open another setup window of the same type and select Paste.

To export the converted documents, expand the File Source(s) list in your export action(s) and select “Processed PDF” or “Processed TIF”.
