    Limagito File Mover as image converter to many different formats

    Image converter to many different formats using Limagito File Mover Version v2023.0.11.20.

    Do you know that our File Mover tool is able to convert a loaded image file to another format. The setup of such an automated task is really easy.

    1. Search for an image file using one of our Source options
    2. Add IMG (Image) as Destination
    3. Add Output Action within this IMG Destination
    4. Enable ‘Change File Extension’ and add the format file extension you need. For example: .png
    5. Done

    Some file types we currently support as export: Jpeg, Jpeg2000, PNG, TIFF, BMP, WBMP, PS, PDF, PCX, DCX, TGA, PXM, ICO, HDP, GIF, DICOM, …

    Regarding IMG (Image) as destination, we are always open to new ideas so please let us know.

    On our roadmap currently we have:

    • Parameters (Compression, Quality, ..)
    • EXIF Metadata

    Some screenshots to get you started:

    • Please add WIN as source to scan a Windows folder for images (can be any other Source too):

    • In this example we only want to convert .jpg files, so add a File Name Include filter:

    • Add ‘IMG’ (Image) as Destination:

      • Select ‘Output to File’ as new Action and click the <Add> button
      • In the Image Actions listbox (on the left) select the newly added ‘Output to File’ action
      • An extra tab ‘Output’ will appear in the top menu, select this tab

    POP, IMAP and SMPT with OAuth2 (Microsoft Office 365 services)

    POP, IMAP and SMPT with OAuth2 (Microsoft Office 365 services)

    Microsoft is disabling basic authentication for Microsoft Office 365 services on October 2022.

    1. The simplest solution that will not require any major changes to your setup is to have your Outlook/Exchange users turn on 2-step verification in their accounts and then generate application-specific passwords.  Otherwise, you will have to update your settings to use OAuth2 when connected to Outlook/Exchange. In this case the username stays the samen but you’ll get a new application-specific password.
    2. The second solution is using OAuth2 as described in the following example: link

    • Select the first Action ‘Load PDF to be signed’ and an extra tab will appear in the top menu bar. Select this ‘Pdf Load’ tab.

    The default setup here is %SFP%SFN which translates to Source File Path and Source File Name. In most cases you don’t need to change this.

    • Back to the ‘Setup’ tab and select ‘Load certificate for PDF signing’ in the Action list and ‘Pdf Certificate’ Tab.

    We are going to use a Smartcard or HSM (hardware security module) so we keep the ‘Certificate File’ field empty.

    2. Set the Smartcard CSP option
      • Load the certificate on the smartcard currently in the reader (or on the USB token).
      • Leave this field empty to allow us to automatically choose the CSP (Cryptographi Service Provider).
