GdPicture14 Namespace / GdPictureImaging Class / SaveAsTIFF Method / SaveAsTIFF(Int32,String,TiffCompression) Method
A unique image identifier of the GdPicture image representing the image to be saved.
The file path where the specified image will be saved. Use the empty string to allow the control to prompt users to select a file. If the specified file already exists, it will be overwritten.

You can subsequently use the GetLastPath method to retrieve the path of the selected file.

A member of the TiffCompression enumeration. The resulting TIFF compression scheme to be used.

Please note that if you apply the JPEG compression, the quality factor used by default is 90. You can use the overloaded SaveAsTIFF(Int32,String,TiffCompression,Int32) method to set your preferred value for the JpegQuality parameter.

Example





In This Topic
    SaveAsTIFF(Int32,String,TiffCompression) Method
    In This Topic
    Saves a required GdPicture image to a given file path as Tagged Image File Format (tif) acording to what you have specified.

    Please note that this method only saves the currently selected page of the specified image if it is an editable multipage TIFF image.

    Parameters

    ImageID
    A unique image identifier of the GdPicture image representing the image to be saved.
    FilePath
    The file path where the specified image will be saved. Use the empty string to allow the control to prompt users to select a file. If the specified file already exists, it will be overwritten.

    You can subsequently use the GetLastPath method to retrieve the path of the selected file.

    Compression
    A member of the TiffCompression enumeration. The resulting TIFF compression scheme to be used.

    Please note that if you apply the JPEG compression, the quality factor used by default is 90. You can use the overloaded SaveAsTIFF(Int32,String,TiffCompression,Int32) method to set your preferred value for the JpegQuality parameter.

    Return Value

    A member of the GdPictureStatus enumeration. If the method has been successfully followed, then the return value is GdPictureStatus.OK. We strongly recommend always checking this status first.
    Remarks
    Be aware that if the specified GdPicture image represents an editable multipage TIFF image, this method only saves the currently selected page. You should use the TiffSaveMultiPageToFile(Int32,String,TiffCompression) method to save an editable multipage TIFF image instead.
    Example
    Saving a tiff image.
    Removing lines from a black and white tiff image.
    using (GdPictureImaging gdpictureImaging = new GdPictureImaging())
    {
        // LoadInMemory parameter is set to true in order to be able to update the input file.
        int imageID = gdpictureImaging.CreateGdPictureImageFromFile("image.tif", true);
     
        // Remove vertical and horizontal lines using default parameters.
        gdpictureImaging.RemoveLines(imageID, LineRemoveOrientation.Horizontal | LineRemoveOrientation.Vertical);
        gdpictureImaging.SaveAsTIFF(imageID, "image.tif", TiffCompression.TiffCompressionCCITT4);
        gdpictureImaging.ReleaseGdPictureImage(imageID);
    }
    Inverting white text with black background to become black text with white background within a tiff image.
    using (GdPictureImaging gdpictureImaging = new GdPictureImaging())
    {
        // LoadInMemory parameter is set to true in order to be able to update the input file.
        int imageID = gdpictureImaging.CreateGdPictureImageFromFile("image.tif", true);
     
        // Invert white text with black background.
        gdpictureImaging.AutoTextInvert(imageID, 100, 100, 60, 100, true, false, 1);
        gdpictureImaging.SaveAsTIFF(imageID, "image.tif", TiffCompression.TiffCompressionCCITT4);
        gdpictureImaging.ReleaseGdPictureImage(imageID);
    }
