Convert XPS to PNG using Java

[ ]

Aspose.Page Java XPS to PNG converter allows to convert XPS document to PNG image on any OS for which Java Virtual Machine exists.
It is necessary to do several steps in order to perform XPS to PNG conversion:

  1. Initialize an input stream for input XPS document.
  2. Create an instance of XpsDocument from created earlier input stream.
  3. Specify SmoothingModeResolution and other options of PngSaveOptions.
  4. Create an instance of ImageDevice.
  5. Save XPS document as image with PNG save options to an array of arrays of bytes. One array of bytes for one page of input document.
  6. Save resulting 2-dimensional arrays of bytes to PNG files creating for every bytes array a new file output stream.

Following code snippet shows how to convert XPS to PNG files in Java:

// For complete examples and data files, please go to
// The path to the documents directory.
String dataDir = Utils.getDataDir();
// Load XPS document
XpsDocument document = new XpsDocument(dataDir + "input.xps");
// Initialize options object with necessary parameters.
com.aspose.xps.rendering.PngSaveOptions options = new com.aspose.xps.rendering.PngSaveOptions();
options.setPageNumbers(new int[] { 1, 2, 6 });

// Create rendering device for image
com.aspose.xps.rendering.ImageDevice device = new com.aspose.xps.rendering.ImageDevice();, options);

// Iterate through document partitions (fixed documents, in XPS terms)
for (int i = 0; i < device.getResult().length; i++) {
    // Iterate through partition pages
    for (int j = 0; j < device.getResult()[i].length; j++) {
        // Initialize image output stream
        FileOutputStream imageStream = new FileOutputStream(dataDir + "XPStoPNG" + "_" + (i + 1) + "_" + (j + 1) + ".png");
        // Write image
        imageStream.write(device.getResult()[i][j], 0, device.getResult()[i][j].length);

Let’s consider PngSaveOptions. Using this class we can assign different conversion parameters while converting XPS to PNG.

  • SmoothingMode assigns a degree of smoothing for lines, curves and edges of filled areas, may be AntiAlias, HighQuality, HighSpeed and Default (none). Default value is HighQuality.
  • Resolution controls resolution of resulting image. Default value is 96.
  • TextRenderingHint assigns quality of text rendering, may be AntiAlias, AntiAliasGridFit, ClearTypeGridFit, SingleBitPerPixel, SingleBitPerPixelGridFit, SystemDefault. Default value in XPS to PNG conversion is AntiAliasGridFit.
  • InterpolationMode defines algorithm that is used when scaling or/and rotating image, may be Bicubic, Bilinear, High, HighQualityBicubic, HighQualityBilinear, Low, NearestNeighbor and Default. Default value is HighQualityBicubic.
  • PageNumbers represents an array of numbers of pages which will be saved to PNG.
