inputTiffs: the tiffs to be merged. The files are separated by character "|".
outputPdf: the output pdf file

SetCode(String code)
the registration code

SetImageScaleRatio(LONG xScalePercent, LONG yScalePercent)
the percent of PDF DPI ration (72) against the orignal image x DPI

yScalePercent: the percent of PDF DPI ration (72) against the orignal image y DPI

ConvertImageToTiff(String strInputImage, String strOutputImage, LONG nTiffEncoding)
input image, can be jpg, jpeg, png, bmp and gif

strOutputImage: output tiff image name
nTiffEncoding: encoding type of tiff

0 is for lzw
1 is for ccitt-3
2 is for ccitt-4
3 is for rle
4 is for none compression.
1-3 needs the input image to be mono color.

PDFToImage(String strPDF, String strImage, LONG XDPI, LONG YDPI, LONG paperSize, LONG Param1, LONG Param2)
: the PDF to be converted
strImage: the image file name. It can include "%d" for the PDF page number. Example names are: "output-%d.jpg", "output.tiff". The component will determine the output image file format according to the file extension.
XDPI, YDPI: the DPI setting
paperSize : Reserved
Param1: the encoding type given the file format.
Param2: the parameter for encoding
