    Can anyone suggest a cheap (free) *.dwg to *.jpg converter.

    I'm currently using Cutewriter to output *.pdf's but going from that via the desktop to *.jpg produces less than desirable results.

    The Autocad jpg converter does not work very well either.
    Sometimes if the drawing is not too large, I center it on the screen, and hit the "printscreen" button, and then past the drawing in a photoshop program, and crop it.

    I have seen add-ons that make good TIFF files, which can be converted to JPG's, but don't know the name.

    Most versions of CorelDRAW will do it. Older versions are cheap.

    Hi, JorgensenSteam.
    I am also testing about the related image converting projects these days. I want to try to convert Tiff to JPG using it. Do you have any ideas about it? Or any good suggestion? Thanks in advance.



    Best regards,
    Arron

    I have since mastered this process - firstly print to Cutewriter from a window to fit a suitable sheet size (larger giving finer detail but can eventually become too fine) print to *.pdf.
    Then in PDF set the screen to 100% (image larger than / off screen) use the image select tool to select window to post to desktop (you have to scroll off screen to do this).
    In photo software (Arcsoft) select create new - this sets up a blank to suit whatever is on the desktop. Paste. Save as whatever photo type - et Voila.

    There are probably better / easier methods but this is working for me.

    Regards,

    Ken

    Hi, Arron.
    Thanks for your nice sharing. I wonder does the toolkit you mentioned above offer free trial package for users to check. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
