I'm using document writer to save the rotated raster image as PDF. However the resulting PDF loses its quality after doing rotation.

Here is my code:

var docWriter = new DocumentWriter();

var pdfOptions = docWriter.GetOptions(DocumentFormat.Pdf) as PdfDocumentOptions;
pdfOptions.DocumentType = PdfDocumentType.Pdf;
//pdfOptions.OneBitImageCompression = OneBitImageCompressionType.Flate;
//pdfOptions.ColoredImageCompression = ColoredImageCompressionType.FlateJpeg;
//pdfOptions.ImageOverText = true;
//pdfOptions.ImageOverTextSize = DocumentImageOverTextSize.Original;
//pdfOptions.ImageOverTextMode = DocumentImageOverTextMode.Strict;
//pdfOptions.QualityFactor = 50;
//pdfOptions.DocumentResolution = 0;
docWriter.SetOptions(DocumentFormat.Pdf, pdfOptions);

using RasterCodecs codecs = new RasterCodecs();
codecs.Options.Load.Name = $"anything.pdf";
var originalImage = codecs.Load(file);
var info = codecs.GetInformation(file, true);

for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
    var memoryStream = new MemoryStream();
    docWriter.BeginDocument(memoryStream, DocumentFormat.Pdf);

    for (int j = 1; j <= info.TotalPages; j++)
        var page = new DocumentWriterRasterPage();
        var image = codecs.Load(i == 0 ? file : @$"{currentPath}\Image To Pdf\docwriterrotate.pdf", j);

        RotateCommand command = new RotateCommand();
        command.Angle = 90 * 100;
        command.FillColor = new RasterColor(255, 255, 255);
        command.Flags = RotateCommandFlags.Resize | RotateCommandFlags.Bicubic;

        page.Image = image;


    // save the document writer stream
    using var fileStream = File.Create(@$"{currentPath}\Image To Pdf\docwriterrotate.pdf");
    memoryStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);

I tried changing multiple options like quality factor, compression, image over text, etc.. but couldn't get the best output pdf.

I have attached the original PDF used for rotation.

Original PDF Size - 30kb
After Rotate and saving as PDF using document writer - 10kb

I need an output PDF file with size same or less than original file size without losing orignial file quality. Please assist on how to achieve this.

Hello Abdul,

The reason the PDF quality is decreasing is due to you rasterizing the PDF to rotate it. If you want to keep the PDF quality you will need to look into using the LEADDocument and DocumentPage class, since the PDF sample you are using is a vector PDF.

The DocumentPage class contains a rotate method so that you do not need to gather the RasterImage of the document.
Your code could look something like this:


         MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();

         using (var document = DocumentFactory.LoadFromFile(_file, new LoadDocumentOptions()))
            document.IsReadOnly = false;
            DocumentPage page = document.Pages[0];

            using (DocumentConverter converter = new DocumentConverter())
               var jobData = new DocumentConverterJobData();
               // The loaded document is our input 
               jobData.Document = document;
               // We want PDF as output 
               jobData.DocumentFormat = DocumentFormat.Pdf;

               jobData.OutputDocumentStream = ms;

               var job = converter.Jobs.CreateJob(jobData);
         ms.Position = 0;
         File.WriteAllBytes(@"FILE PATH TO OUTPUT PDF", ms.GetBuffer());

Here is the resulting PDF:
