A virtual printer "Virtual Image Printer driver" that converts the printing result into an image file
It is developed open source based on Microsoft's universal printer driver, and it can be installed as a driver for printing. Outputs are available in BMP, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, PDF formats. Since printing results can be confirmed as image files in advance, it is considerably convenient when printing from software without print preview. In addition, since the print result becomes the image file as it is, processing is also free. Recommended because it is surprisingly convenient.
