Re: Gamma correct resizing (english, français)

he seems to add examples ... some are really convincing now I can't find any new examples, but the old ones are very sufficient (PNG is preferred, JPG is lossy, while AGIF is palettized). Still the page is being updated and bug-fixed as necessary. The only way around in XnView seems to be the inver...

Re: converting doc to jpg

converting doc to jpg You can't really convert DOC (document, similar applies to DOCX, PDF, ODF, CHM, ...). to JPG (bitmap). What one could do, is: 1. Create a BITMAP from every page of a document (or one long bitmap of all pages). But it would be a very difficult task. Why? DOC and Co are very com...

Re: WebP support

I think webp is a bad idea. There are already several JPG replacement formats floating around (jpeg 2000, hdphoto/jpeg-xr for example), and none are getting very widespread support yet (jp2k's the best supported, but it's been around for many years now & seems likely to die a quiet death). JPEG-200...

Re: animation problems

To be more verbose, for all 3 examples given, in XN 1.97.7 the APNG animation runs but looks very messy ( http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=441971 fine in Firefox 4.0b5)

thanks.
There is AFAIK no such feature in NCONVERT (as of 5.75), and I miss it too (besides 8 bppc -> 16 bppc upgrade).

Re: Iphone Flavor of PNG format

forgot to make specific rules about what kind of information is forbidden in third-party chunks. Without such rules, I could embed mp3 Good point (they had prohibited animations, still) :-| Right, but if it's clearly broken, it would be unanimous no. Let's wait what they say to Apple's "PNG" ...

Re: Iphone Flavor of PNG format

APNG is NOT PNG. It also breaks the PNG spec No it's not. PNG specs allows third-party chunks extensions. If a third-party follows those chunk-naming rules, you cannot accuse them of breaking anything. They tried to do it "legally and smoothly" but still APNG breaks the purpose of PNG "to store a s...

Re: Iphone Flavor of PNG format

we really shouldn't support people who break formats. Right. If they want a new format, they should: 1. Make sure that it's sufficiently superior to existing formats, otherwise there is no point to invent it (similar applies to other "new" stuff like video codecs) 2. Give it a new name sufficiently...

I think the world/market/manufacturers has already chosen.
Theora has had HD support (up to 1'048'576 pixels per dimension) for years and nobody noticed, so this "news" is and never was new :-)
