Hi,

Is it possible to export pages or tables as GIF images from Quark Xpress, either directly or with the use of an extension? At present we have to save the page as EPS and then manipulate it in Photoshop, which is very time-consuming when you have hundreds of GIFs to create.

Any help gratefully received.

BeyondPressXT will let you do that, but not as automated as you may have hoped. It's a Quark-to-HTML program, expensive ($350 I think) and I believe only v3 and v4 compatible. From Extensis (www.extensis.com).

With it loaded, you get a new palette. You select two or more text/picture boxes and group them. Then with the group selected, you click an icon on the BP palette to add it to the "export to HTML" list. When you've added a grouped item, it automatically gets exported as either a GIF or JPEG (you set the default, either GIF or JPEG, in BP prefs, and can override those individally in the palette).  

If you've just got one text box, you can either group it with a tiny, empty, no-background box, or I'm pretty sure you can just add one text box to the palette and set it to export as an image instead of HTML text from the flyout menu, which would be the default for single text boxes.

You go through the doc, adding all groups as necessary. Then you click the palette's Export button and all the items are saved out to GIF or JPEG into a folder you specify.

This is just one use of BP of course, but it's the only way I know, other than getting a third-party screen shot program that lets you save shots as GIFs and gives you control over what you're taking a shot of. That would be another way, but you don't get BP's ability to export them all in a bunch.
