Hi,

You might like to take a look at ImageMagick, I seem to remember
somebody showing me a demo of doing something like this a couple of
years ago, to produce a pdf from text and pictures.

Regards,

Doug Neale

Please note:

If ImageMagick falls back to some postscript rendering or to ghostscript, this can be a no go for some people.

This depends on your "specific" requirements. You could use the
Formatted Text Control (FTC) to render it for you. The FTC can
read and write RTF and internally it renders the output to a
picture (i.e., double buffering) and you could capture each page
as an image.

Hello,

is there a way to render the content of a rtf file as an image?

Basically I need something like "Save as image" for a .rtf file.

The .rtf file can contain text and pictures.
I use Windows XP / 7
