Use this dialog box to set formatting, compression, transformation, and resolution options for a Microsoft Office Visio file that you want to export as a .jpg file.

General

Operation

  • Baseline  Creates the file linearly from the top row of the image to the bottom row.

  • Progressive  Creates the file in a series of scans, which results in the image being displayed initially with poor resolution until the entire image loads. Each scan adds to the data already provided so that the total storage requirement is roughly the same as for a baseline JPEG image of the same quality as the final scan.

Color format

Controls the color depth of the exported file.

  • RGB color  Uses RGB (red, green, blue) color for the exported image. RGB describes color by three values from 0 (none) to 255 (full). A value of 0,0,0 equals black and 255,255,255 is white. Similarly, 255,0,0 is red.

  • YCC color  Uses YCC color, which is composed of a black-and-white signal and two color signals, for the exported image. YCC color can easily be converted to RGB or CMYK color.

  • Grayscale  Uses a sequence of shades of gray, ranging from black through white, for the exported image.

  • CMYK color  Uses CMYK (cyan-magenta-yellow-black) color for the exported image.

Background color

Sets the background color for the exported file. The default is white.

Quality

Sets the image quality from 0 to 100 percent, with quality increasing as the percentage increases.

Transformation

Rotation

Controls the rotation of the image in the exported file.

  • None  Exports the shape or drawing without any rotation.

  • Rotate left  Rotates the shape or drawing 90 degrees counterclockwise.

  • Rotate right  Rotates the shape or drawing 90 degrees clockwise.

Flip horizontal

Reverses the shape or drawing horizontally (around the y-axis) to produce a mirror image.

Flip vertical

Reverses the shape or drawing vertically (around the x-axis) to produce an upside-down image.

Resolution

Screen

Bases the exported file's resolution on current screen resolution.

Printer

Bases the resolution on current printer resolution and gives optimum printout results.

Source

Specifies that the source program determine the resolution.

Custom

Specifies a custom resolution. (Width x height dimensions should be between 32 and 400 pixels per inch.)

Size

Screen

Bases the exported file's size on the screen size and places the largest possible image within the dimensions of the screen while maintaining the aspect ratio of the original drawing or shape.

Printer

Bases the exported file's size on the currently selected printer paper size, and places the largest possible image within the dimensions of the paper size while maintaining the aspect ratio of the original drawing or shape.

Source

Bases the exported file's size on the size of the source file.

Custom

Bases the exported file's size on the custom size (width x height) you enter and places the largest possible image within the custom dimensions while maintaining the aspect ratio of the original drawing or shape.
