It relies on an internal Ghostscript algorithm that tries to rotate pages automatically, depending on the flow of text inside the PDFs.

I'm desperate I don't find the right command and options with GhostScript (gs, ps2pdf, pdf2ps) which allow me to rotate my document. to let GhostScript rotate an image with a command line option like -c PDF". Hi, I am trying to rotate a pdf document of 10 pages in landascape A3 format, in order to get an A3 portrait. My final goal is to get 10 separate tiff.

As noted above, when using MS Windows console command. This is intended to be a quick way to invoke ghostscript to convert one or more input files. For instance, to convert somefile. Individual documents can and often do specify a paper size, which takes precedence over the default size.

The default set of paper sizes will be included in the currentpagedevice in the InputAttributes dictionary with each paper size as one of the entries. The last entry in the dictionary which has numeric keys is a non-standard Ghostscript extension type of PageSize where the array has four elements rather than the standard two elements.

This four element array represents a page size range where the first two elements are the lower bound of the range and the second two are the upper bound. By default these are [0, 0] for the lower bound and [16 fffff, 16 fffff] for the upper bound. For actual printers, either the entire InputAttributes dictionary should be replaced or the range type entry should not be included.

Using this option will result in automatic rotation of the document page if the requested page size matches one of the default page sizes.

This allows the -dPSFitPage option to fit the page size requested in a PostScript file to be rotated, scaled and centered for the best fit on the specified page. See the section on finding files for details.

Make the Paper Landscape

Sometimes the initialization files are compiled into Ghostscript and cannot be changed. On Windows and some Linux builds, the default paper size will be selected to be a4 or letter depending on the locale.

Interacting with pipes As noted above, input files are normally specified on the command line. However, one can also "pipe" input into Ghostscript from another program by using the special file name '-' which is interpreted as standard input.

Because of this, options and files after the '-' in the command line will be ignored. On Unix and MS Windows systems you can send output to a pipe in the same way.

In the last case, -q isn't necessary since Ghostscript handles the pipe itself and messages sent to stdout will be printed as normal.

All the normal switches and procedures for interpreting PostScript files also apply to PDF files, with a few exceptions. This is useful for creating fixed size images of PDF files that may have a variety of page sizes, for example thumbnail images.

This option is also set by the -dFitPage option. If neither of these is specified, the output will use the screen options for any output device that doesn't have an OutputFile parameter, and the printer options for devices that do have this parameter. This may include any extra bleed area needed to accommodate the physical limitations of cutting, folding, and trimming equipment.

The actual printed page may include printing marks that fall outside the bleed box. The trim box defines the intended dimensions of the finished page after trimming. Some files have a TrimBox that is smaller than the MediaBox and may include white space, registration or cutting marks outside the CropBox. Using this option simulates appearance of the finished printed page.

The art box defines the extent of the page's meaningful content including potential white space as intended by the page's creator. The art box is likely to be the smallest box. This error message usually occurs if you don't have Ghostscript, or if GSview can't find Ghostscript.

Set the Ghostscript Include Path correctly. Install the required version of the Ghostscript DLL. Make sure you have only one copy of the Ghostscript DLL on your system.

This is because the document does not have correct DSC comments. From the Control Panel, select Printers, Options The correct method is to connect the printer to FILE:.

In addition, from the Control Panel select Printers, Options That is, the PostScript showpage operator is not used. GSview will then ignore the DSC comments and allow you to view all pages, but only in the original order. Complain to the author of the program that produced that PostScript file. Some PostScript printer drivers include code that is specific to a particular printer. The PostScript output from these drivers may be unportable and may not display in GSview.

Landscape viewing and printing

Problem: GSview says "Page ordering is Special This may prevent GSview from displaying pages in any order other than the original order. If you continue and reorder the pages, PostScript errors may occur.

The only way to fix this is to regenerate the PostScript without special page ordering. By default, Windows 95 creates PostScript files which use special page ordering. For Windows 3.

As far as the third, good luck with that, because after an hour of trying I gave up trying to correct the postscript file with Vim. There are two ways to strongarm an unwilling. Therefore, when you look at it on the screen, the image is sideways, but printing it portrait will do exactly what you want.

Make the paper landscape and leave the image alone. This makes the on-screen image exactly what you want, and is the best for projector presentations, but from what I've read it can have some unpleasant surprises when printed.


Let's look at how you do each of these alternatives: Twist the Image Once again, this is great for printing but you'll need to turn your head 90 degrees to correctly view it on the screen. For a PDF that looks great on the screen, especially for presentations, you leave the image orientation alone and make the paper landscape.Change the page size with the Media menu.

All the pages must be the same orientation, and must match in some other ways. See the licence in pstotext. Sometimes the initialization files are compiled into Ghostscript and cannot be changed. This means you must exercise caution when using this switch, and probably should not use it at all when processing a mixture of PostScript and PDF files on the same command line.

If it is not in the man pages or the how-to's this is the place! Our new policy is to try to render broken PDF's, and also to print a warning, so that Ghostscript is still useful as a sanity-check for invalid files. For this reason, I recommend against using this method for producing landscape orientation. PDF and bitmap output from Ghostscript will be the same as viewed. But when the going get tough, the tough use Ghostscript to do those unusual tasks like creating landscape.
