Exporting Images:

Exporting images is easy with WarRoom. First, select Images > Export Images from the menu to launch the Export Images module.

At the top of the window you have the option to create a new Volume Name for your image metadata load file. It is recommended that you insert some descriptive name here, although it is not mandatory.

Next, select the range of documents whose images you would like to export as part of your image production. This range corresponds to the current document query, so if you have run a search and narrowed your full set of documents down to a smaller set, you will only be able to select a range from within that subset. This is useful if, for example, you only want to export images from a specific tag or query.

Finally, under Image Options, you have three options:

  • The first option is to produce the image files as single page Tiff images. If you choose this option, a .LFP image metadata load file will be created for you as well. You should keep these files together when producing them.
  • The second option allows you to produce the images as multi-page PDF files. If you select this option, a .LFP image load file will not be created as it is not needed to view PDFs.
  • The final option is to create an .LFP image metadata load file only. If you select this option no images will be exported, only their metadata.

You can choose whether or not to make any redactions that you have made on your images permanent (i.e., “burning in”). If you do not select this option your redactions will be ignored.

Lastly, you have the option to burn the image key into the lower right hand corner of your images. This requires that you have selected an Image Cross Reference field in your global database settings.

Select Export to complete the export images function. By default the image metadata load file will use OS X style path format (i.e., “/path/to/image”). If you would prefer PC format (i.e., “\path\to\image”), simply open WarRoom Preferences, click the Export tab, and choose “Export image paths using Windows format” before exporting your images.
