CDR (Coral draw) to PDF conversion (Java)

Is it possible to convert CDR file to PDF using expose imaging library in java. As per documentation CDR file is supported & there is class as CDRImage in imaging jar but its unable to convert it.

Getting following error while processing CDR file:

class com.aspose.imaging.coreexceptions.ImageLoadException: Cannot open an image. The image file format may be not supported at the moment


Can you please share source file along with generated result and sample code so that we may further investigate to help you out.

Hello @Adnan.Ahmad ,

I have tried the following code in Android(Java):

// please modify the path of file as per file location of your
public String APP_FOLDER_EXT_STORAGE = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().getPath() + File.separator + “testing” + File.separator;
Image im = Image.load(APP_FOLDER_EXT_STORAGE + “tiger1.cdr”);

I have also tried the the following code

CdrImage cdrImage = (CdrImage) Image.load(APP_FOLDER_EXT_STORAGE + “tiger1.cdr”) ;

Getting same error on both the occasions.

Please download the CDR from the below mentioned link:

        CdrRasterizationOptions rasterizationOptions = new CdrRasterizationOptions();
        image.save(outputPdfFileName, pdfOptions);

I tried to PSD example but getting exception as well. I will suggest to retest examples . provided on github.

Can you please let me know is it possible to get bitmap from Image object to display in imageview in android?


I have observed the issue shared by you with newly shared file. It seems to be an issue with API while loading attached file. An issue with ID IMAGINGJAVA-1520 has been created in our issue tracking system to further investigate and resolve the issue. This thread has been linked with the issue so that you may be notified once the issue will be fixed.

I am afraid at present the API does not support in case of Android platforms.
