HOWTO: Change the maximum size of graphic files using the document conversion Add on DOCTIFF.EXE



ID: ZTN1298

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Zetafax version 8 and later with the email gateway, web client or API.


When faxing out graphic images the size of the image will correspond to what is in the original document. However, this behaviour can be changed so the image will cover the entire page if this is the output required.

More information

To change the default behaviour you will need to alter an option in the Zetafax setup.ini file.

This file is located in the Zfax\system\z-db folder (Where Zfax is the location of the Zetafax server files), before you make any changes please make a backup of this file.

Open the file in notepad and scroll down to the [Doctiff] section.


MaximizeGraphics: NO

The default graphics size is set to NO (as above) change this to YES. Save the file then restart the Zetafax server software for the changes to take affect.
