Image modules and their fields

When you are configuring this module, the following fields display. A bolded title in a module indicates a required field.

Resize

This transformer module changes an image’s height and width according to criteria you specify.

Source file

Select the source of the image you want to convert. You can select output from a previous module or map the data file and filename.

Data Map the file that you want to convert. This field is available if you selected Map in the Source file field.
File name Enter a name for the converted file. This field is available if you selected Map in the Source file field.
I want to Select whether you want to maintain the height-width ratio or change the dimensions to a specified height and width.
According to

Select how you want the module to determine the new size of the image. This field appears if you selected to maintain height-width ration in the I want to field. Other fields appear based on the selection in this field.

  • Maximum width

    Reduces an image to a width you specify. Height is calculated automatically.

  • Maximum height

    Reduces an image to a height you specify. Width is calculated automatically.

  • Maximum height or width

    Reduces an image in a way that its height and width do not exceed the values you specify. Because this option maintains height-width ratio, one of the dimensions may be smaller than specified. For example, if height and width are both specified as 40, a 400x300 image will be reduced to 40X30.

  • Minimum width

    Enlarges an image to a width you specify. Height is calculated automatically.

  • Minimum height

    Enlarges an image to a height you specify. Width is calculated automatically.

  • Minimum height or width

    Enlarges an image in a way that its height and width are not smaller than the values you specify. Because this option maintains height-width ratio, one of the dimensions may be larger than specified. For example, if height and width are both specified as 300, a 40x30 image will be enlarged to 400X300.

  • Percent

    Changes the image size by a percentage based on the value you specify.

Width Enter or map the desired width of the resized image in pixels.
Height Enter or map the desired height of the resized image in pixels.

Convert a format

This transformer module changes the format of an image file. This module is compatible the following formats:

  • PNG
