You can use these handy profiles to convert your original assets into different file types or sizes.
- Image conversions: This allows you to create another file type, a low-res version, or a file for a specific application like PowerPoint, for example.
- Cropping conversions: This allows you to create a conversion profile that crops an image with a predefined aspect ratio or allows the user to crop the image freely.
Both types of export profiles are listed under the same columns that show the following properties of that profile:
- ID: A unique ID for every profile.
- Name: The name that was given to the profile.
- Source type: Different source types can be entered here, for example, JPG with all variations (jpg, jpeg, jpe, jfif, jif). The * represents all source types.
- Destination type: Into what file type the original one needs to be converted. With *, no file type conversion is made.
- Status: The current status of the profile.
The following is only applicable for GROW and PRO.
You can create a low-resolution JPEG optimized for PowerPoint presentations (72dpi, RGB) with a fixed width of 1024 pixels from a high-resolution TIFF, and create high-resolution JPEGs (300dpi, CMYK) from EPS files,...
When setting up an export profile, multiple source types can be entered, and comma-separated.
Remember that you have to enter all possible variations of a source file (e.g., jpg, JPG, jpeg, JPEG). The admin should always select at least one user group for which the conversion profile will be available. If a conversion profile is no longer needed, the admin can deactivate the profile.
New export profile
When you click on the following button, you can create a new export profile. After that, give it a name and continue.
Once you continue, the setting section of the new export profile will show up. From here, you can do the following:
- enabling or disabling the profile
- changing the name
- choosing an image or a cropping conversion from the drop-down
- choosing the type of files that are allowed to be converted to the destination from the drop-down
- destination filetype
- entering the maximum size (when you enter the width, the height will be filled in automatically)
