If you’ve been singing the RTF blues these last few days, then today’s quick tutorial will have you right as rain in no time. I can’t count the times that RTF has caused me problems with compatibility, nor the times that I have accidentally corrupted an RTF file by saving it in the wrong app. I say, never again! With this simplified means of converting our documents into JPG format, we will be sitting pretty in just a few minutes.
We shall begin by installing our client:
pip install cloudmersive-convert-api-client
And following that we can call convert_document_rtf_to_jpg, which will take in an input file and optionally a quality score, which will affect the compression level of the finished product.
