Using ReaTIFF: Command-line and Windows Integration
There are two automation features in ReaTIFF: Windows integration and command-line usage capability.
ReaTIFF can integrate itself into Windows Explorer right-click context menu for graphic file formats. Windows integration can be enabled (or disabled) from the "Options" menu of ReaTIFF. You can also adjust output settings for the integrated convertion. Most of the time just accepting the defaults is enough.
You can use ReaTIFF as a command-line (console) utility: call it in command files (*.bat, *.cmd) or invoke it during console sessions. Here is the syntax for the ReaTIFF command-line usage.
reatiff /batch filesList [/format tiffSettings] [/proc processings] [/name namingTemplate] [/tags tagsList]
filesList - path to the file that lists input images
tiffSettings - path to the file that contains TIFF format settings
processings - path to the file that contains image processings
namingTemplate - path to the file that contains a naming template
tagsList - path to the file that lists advanced TIFF tags manipulation
Some non-standard command shells can prevent you from using ReaTIFF in command-line mode, launching its user interface no matter what parameters are passed. If you encounter this issue try calling ReaTIFF executable directly as 'reatiff.com'. If you need to explicitly launch ReaTIFF in user interface mode you should use 'reatiff.exe'.
Automation features are available in ReaTIFF Pro only.
