covard Apr 27, 2016 at 8:25 PM I am using Magick.NET-Q16-AnyCPU and Ghostscript 0.16 x64 to extract the first page of PDF as a PNG file. I have gotten it to work but I want to set the directory where the PNG file is getting written. How do I set the default directory for output? dlemstra Apr 27, 2016 at 9:35 PM Edited Apr 27, 2016 at 9:37 PM You can specify a full path as the fill name when you call the .Write method: image.Write(@"c:\the\directory\where\you\want\it\page1.png");  p.s. You are using MagickImage.Write to write a single page right? covard Apr 27, 2016 at 10:21 PM Here is what I am doing:  MagickReadSettings settings = new MagickReadSettings(); settings.Density = new Density(300, 300); settings.FrameIndex = 0; settings.FrameCount = 1; MagickImage image = new MagickImage(fileName, settings); image.Write(@"c:\dev\Sample.Page1" + page + ".png"); Output file is ending up here: C:\Program Files (x86)\IIS Express This path is not defined anywhere that I can find. dlemstra Apr 27, 2016 at 10:52 PM I am unable to reproduce your issue. The file gets written to c:\dev. Are you able to share a small program on something like DropBox that can be used to reproduce the issue?
