Admin Console: Transformation services

Transformation services let you convert content between different file formats. The JODConverter installation (part of OpenOffice.org) is used by Alfresco for document transformations, such as a text file to PDF. The ImageMagick and PDF2SWF installations (part of SWFTools) are used for image transformations and transformations to Flash respectively, and it is recommended that you do not change their settings.
