Project Description
XPS2Image is a simple command-line utility for converting XPS documents to images.

Currently the code only converts XPS documents to jpg images.


Project Inception
I was playing around with the microsoft tag beta (http://www.microsoft.com/tag/) and I wanted to make images of my tags so they could displayed on my websites. I couldn't find a program that converted XPS documents to images, at least something free. I found some sample code by Dennis Quintela http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/wpf/thread/3ad78d46-7fa6-4697-82f9-c81d152b9a53/, but the code did not compiled in .NET 3.5.

So I updated the code to work with .NET 3.5. I have some ideas for extending this code into a more flexible and useful utility.



Project Goals
  • Both command line and UI versions of application
  • Plugable interface for converting XPS to different file types
    • Extended goal: plugable interface for converting pdf and other file types as well.....

Credits
Dennis Quintela gets credit for the initial inspiration and starting code.
