Nonstandard format of images received from special-purpose hardware
If you work with electronic devices that produce graphics files of nonstandard formats as output information, it is quite probable that you won't be able to view them in a common image viewer. However, you can convert all these images to a standard format with the help of Image Converter Command Line.
Special-purpose software for obscure image formats
Sometimes, certain image editors or electronic devices use image formats or compression algorithms that are less common than the more well-known formats, such as JPEG, GIF or BMP. Without the use of special purpose or proprietary software, image files that use these formats or compression algorithms may pose difficulties for viewing or editing. Photographs from digital cameras, for example, may not be accessible using common image viewers or editors; proprietary software from the manufacturer or vendor may be required to process these images. The need for such special-purpose software, however, can be a financially expensive proposition that discourages some from using their electronic devices.
One way to avoid these difficulties is through the use of a software package specifically designed to deal with a wide array of image formats and compression algorithms. Image Converter Command Line is an example of such a package. With its ability to view and convert almost any image format, Image Converter Command Line offers a single, fast and convenient alternative to the prospect of purchasing a specific image editing or conversion package for each particular file format or electronic device. This approach saves time, since there is no need to search for a specific package, and it saves money, since there is no need to purchase multiple packages. Since only one software package is needed to perform a range of conversion and other processing tasks, there is no need to clutter a hard drive or desktop with numerous individual packages, each designed for a specific image format. Also, images in obscure and sometimes large formats can be converted into other formats that are more highly compressible and that save more space on a hard drive. This allows storage of a greater number of images.
The benefit of a package that can handle and convert multiple image formats, over against highly specialized packages designed for particular image formats, is clear. With the growing popularity of digital cameras and the wide array of available image formats for various special applications, a single source for viewing and converting any image format is tremendously helpful.

Converting images from XXX format to JPEG format
If you have an image in a rare graphics format and cannot find a viewer for it, or you have a collection of images and are not satisfied with their format, you can use Image Converter Command Line to easily convert your images to a more popular graphics format.
Here is a sample of converting images to JPEG format.
Avoiding outdated image file formats
Many older image formats have been replaced in recent years by improved image formats that provide more universal recognition among image viewers and more compressibility, thus leading to smaller file sizes. Outdated file formats may not even be viewable on most image viewers, and many produce extremely large file sizes, which makes sharing images and other graphics through e-mail, and sometimes even through the World Wide Web, virtually impossible. An image format does not necessarily need to be old to be a problem, however. Even current formats can be sufficiently obscure so as not to be recognized by many image viewers. Image formats used by electronic image capturing devices, for example, may involve a format that requires special software to view or to convert to a more widely available format. Older images and images in less common formats need not be discarded or otherwise considered unusable, however.
The simple solution to this difficulty is conversion from the older, outdated image format to a newer format that makes the image more widely accessible to image viewers and that makes it sufficiently compact for sharing through e-mail or on the Web. For some of the more obscure image formats, however, it may be difficult to find an image conversion package that is able to recognize the particular format.
Image Converter Command Line offers a fast way to convert almost any image file format, even those produced by electronic devices, into a more convenient format, such as GIF or JPEG. Whether the images are to be shared through e-mail or on the Web, or whether they are to be converted to a specific format for inclusion in an important document, Image Converter Command Line offers a single, easy-to-use resource for fast image format conversion. Since the software package is able to handle almost any image format, there is neither a need to purchase a number of different packages, nor to buy proprietary software from the manufacturer of a digital camera or other electronic device.
With the wide use of digital cameras and other image acquisition equipment, many people wish to save large numbers of images on their computers, as well as share those images with friends and family through the Internet. The use of outdated formats, or formats that produce image files that are large or not universally recognized, is not a reasonable approach. The use of an image conversion software package, however, provides a simple alternative that can free up space on computer hard drives and make images more easily accessible to almost anyone in the world.

Converting images to EPS format for using them in LATEX documents
If you use LATEX software for computer making-up, you may have to import lots of various images to use them at printing works. To automate this process you will need a software that can quickly convert these photos to a LATEX-friendly graphics format, for example EPS. Image Converter Command Line will help you cope with this task.
Converting vector images to raster images. (Converting WMF to JPEG. Converting WMF to raster images.)
Sometimes you may have to convert vector images to raster ones, for example, if you want to protect your MASTER-images from using in other projects, or just to view them conveniently. If there are lots of such images, the conversion process may be rather painstaking. Image Converter Command Line will help you perform this job quickly and easily.
Converting fax images (FXM, FXR, FXS, FXD, SFF, G3, G4) to ordinary images
Software facsimile equipment receives faxes and saves them in rare formats or their internal formats. Often you may need to convert lots of faxes to common images to work with them, for example, for email transfers, convenient cataloguing of images in simple formats or text recognition. To convert faxes, you should use a powerful and convenient image converter that understands many graphics formats - for example, Image Converter Command Line software.
Viewing images of a very rare XXX format
If you have images in a format you can't find a viewer for, try using Image Converter Command Line software that can open about a hundred formats and convert them to more popular ones. If the program fails to open a file and you are sure that it is an image, you can send this file to our support service and we'll do our best to allow you convert this file to a popular format with the next release of Image Converter Command Line.
Problem with viewing photos in RAW format
If you have any problems with viewing photos of RAW format used in modern digital cameras to compress photos to crw, arw, dcr, k25, kdc, mos, mrw, nef, orf, pef, raf, raw, sr2, srf which need special software to be viewed successfully, you can convert these files into a traditional format. Image Converter Command Line will help you with this task.
