Convert Multiple Images from Other Formats to .tif at Same Time

Recommended Posts

AutoVISION and FrontRunner can only load images of the type TIF. If you have other type of image files and would like to test them in the software, you have to convert them to TIF format first. Although you can easily convert a couple with a free software called IrfanView, it can easily become a cumbersome task especially if you have a lot of images (like 100 or 1000). With the help of a free software called ImageMagick, we can convert many images from any types to TIF with a single line.

1. Go to https://www.imagemagick.org to install the latest version. Once completes, you'll automatically have access to the powerful commands of ImageMagick library from the Windows command prompt.

2. Next create a folder, and store all the image files you'd like to convert into it.

3. Open up a Windows command prompt, navigate to the folder with cd command.

4. Type in the following command. If your file is .png format, then replace *.jpg with *.png (See attached Image)

magick mogrify -format tif *.jpg

5. You'll notice that the converted images are created in the same folder. You can separate them by moving them to another directory with the following command by replacing "your_directory" with the path to a new directory.

move *.tif your_directory

6. Now you are ready to load the new images into AutoVISION or FrontRunner.
