SignedShortLosslessBug.jpg

In the SourceForge JPEG project (a source code collection of various JPEG libraries) somebody published a test file SignedShortLosslessBug.jpg . Sadly XnView can't handle this, the Windows photo viewer also hates it. FFmpeg 2.1.3 accepts the test picture and can convert it into a PNG. FFprobe 2.1.3 ...

Re: please update packJPG addon

The newest packJPG version is 2.5i and can be downloaded Big CAVEAT, at the moment PackJPG SHOULD NOT be distributed with XnView, because it compresses JPG files into PJG files, and nobody including XnView can open (uncompress) these PJG files. For that you would need a corresponding PackJPG.exe, b...

Re: Addons -> PNGOUT

ACK, I missed your comment here, but I saw the DOS386 there. :D

For blarg.xpm.png I used PNGOUT + TRUEPNG. I found the latter in a fascinating PNG tool comparison.

XPM2

Yesterday I added blarg.xpm.png to the X PixMap page on Wikipedia. The image is hosted by WikiMedia commons . Apparently XnView groks the XPM input, but confuses black and white for the simpler XPM2 format. Caveat, the PNG is "correct" after I swapped the characters ' * ' and ' . ' (dot) in the XPM2...

Re: GFL SDK v3.40

Windows: http://download.xnview.com/GflSDK-win.zip Hi, in the GFL ReadMe.txt you still have an old "LZW is patented" blurb for GIF. These patents expired worldwide a decade ago. In another thread you wrote that I can get rid of an old xjp2.dll, this plugin was replaced by openjp2.dll. Apparently yo...

Re: Addons -> PNGOUT

Bundling PNGOUT with XN is legally problematic. FWIW, the newer (2013-02) pngout.exe can be started on a Windows 2000 cmd.exe command line. In other words, it should be fine for a classic XnView 2.13 32bits installation for older Windows platforms. Just keep PNGout.xnp and PNGout.lng in the XnView/...

Re: Windows 95/98/NT/2000

I would vote that you go with what makes your task easier. With those Microsoft folks you have to be careful, I think they dropped support for XP in VS 2012, and XP will be around for another decade. If xnview classic drops W2K I'm tempted to switch to MP on my new 64bits box, and keep the various ...

Re: Windows 95/98/NT/2000

Do you use one of this OS? Yes, W2K on a really old box, in a Virtual PC, and on a wannabe-portable USB stick. Works for me (up to 2.04). If you drop W2K for a better or at least newer compiler please add a note in whatsnew.txt. JFTR, zip32.dll in AddOn vintage 1999 might be not state of the art, 7...

Good to know, apparently the add-on page still offers xjp2.dll for JPEG 2000.

XnView shell extension

Apparently the XnView shell extension does not yet support WEBP, Google's wannabe-better-than-JPEG contribution based on their wannabe-better-than-MP4 video format. If that's a simple omission and it takes seriously less than five minutes to "fix" it, please add WEBP to the formats recognized by the...

Re: Install Xnvew V1-98-2

Odd, for me the "full 1.98.1" failed at the shell extension DLL. I was forced to abort the installation, uninstall XnView incl. shell extension manually, reboot , and then I could finally install 1.98.1. For 1.98.2 I used the "small 1.98.2", and of course that causes no problems (after I found it......

Re: x64 release?

The separate download worked for me, see links posted by XnTriq. Maybe x64 users
should stay away from "full" editions for the moment, and get what they need in
pieces known to be good for x64. Plus the then missing plugins, notably WebP :-)

Re: How can I use Vietnamese in xnView?

another language in Tool~>Option: interface as FAQ but it does work The interface language is for menus, help texts, etc. As long as XnView is a non-Unicode application it uses the "ACP" (ANSI codepage) for your region and language. Try to change the region in "regions and languages" of the control...

Re: browsing in compressed files works really bad

There are two styles of archives. In one version you compress the files and put them in an archive. That's fast to get at the compressed files, but the archive isn't as small as in the other version, where you put uncompressed files in an archive, and compress the complete archive. The second style ...
