Dateiformat *.el8

Post by frank837 » Fri May 31, 2013 4:02 pm

Hallo Forum,
ich habe ein private Filmdatenbank mit 800 Titeln. Zu jedem Titel gehört ein Bild der gebrannten und bedruckten DVD.
Nun hat mein Inkjet-Drucker den Geist aufgegeben und ich habe einen neuen Canon MP3550. Die für das Bedrucken vorgesehene Software it eine Spielart von CD-Labelprint und druckt sauber. Die von der Sw jeweils erstellte Datei kann aber nur im el8-Format gespeichert werden und ich habe bisher kein Programm gefunden, das aus einer el8-Datei eine Bilddatei mit einem gängigen Format macht. Meine DVD Bilder kann ich halt in Access nur als bmp-Datei speichern.

Was mache ich denn da?
Hat bitte jemand einen heißen Tip?

Hoffnungsvoll
Frank

0. upload one EL8 file
1. make a screenshot of the image displayed on screen instead of exporting EL8
2. contact the support and ask them how to export BMP or PNG or what this EL8 is supposed to be
3. provide more details in English language (name of the bugged software? paid?)

@dos386:
Thanks for your reply. Sorry for not writing in english language.

I tried to upload an el8-file, but I'm not sure it worked. I) cannot giveyou an URL as I have no website.

However, the sw (Canon Easy Photoprint EX)I used is bundled with the printer Canon Pixma MG5350 (not MP..., sorry). It is free of charge.
The Sw support does no react to my email, telephone-support states snappily "This is not our sw, you must contact the programmer" (sic!). Well they deliver it and therefore it is their problem.

My problem: I have a database containing some 800 DVD's. Each is stored with the referring data and a picture of the printed DVD as is. This picture mus be in bmp-or jpg-format. If not - no picture in the DB.

A solution could be a converter el8 to bmp or similar or another pgm, which can handle the el8 format. Up to now I have nothing found. One can always scan the printed DVD and store the result in a popular format. But this has no goot results and is a most unelegant solution of this problem.

I am looking forward answering me
Frank

To me it's still unclear who created the database or those EL8 files and how.

Well, only for "lucky" owners of some Canon printers ... and it's almost 100 MiB :bug:

@dos386:
The database is developed by me. MS Access. MS access accepts pictures in several formats. but not the el8-format. I make the pictures with canon easy-photoprint (a utility, delivered with the printer free of charge. A good program but it can only print the results or store them in el8 format.

@xntriq,
Tks for advise. These are facts I know.
My original questions was:

What can I do?

I need a converter or a pgm, which can handle el8-fileextensions

Still hoping

How do they come into "easy-photoprint" ? You "make" them from what ? Can it display them on screen (instead of printing) ? Please upload one (see above).

The information in my previous post may be of relevance to the developer of XnView should he decide to look for a way to “decipher” the .el8 format.

Can you provide us with sample files?

The templates (.ezj) which come with Easy-PhotoPrint EX v4.1.6 (eppx-win-4_1_6-en.exe = WinZip SFX) are JPEG/JFIF files with a manipulated header. I wouldn't be surprised, if the same were to be true for the .el8 format.

Fixed the header and the EZJ displays in XN :-)

SOLVED !!!

Post by DOS386 » Wed Jun 05, 2013 2:54 pm

http://users.freebasic-portal.de/dos386/j.zip (16 KiB)

This program can convert EZJ into valid JPG. Don't know whether it worx for EL8 too as frank837 still hasn't uploaded any EL8 file yet. Please post relevant information when asking for help (your 800 DVD's are not very).

Usage: supply input EZJ file name on the commandline

I read:

Well, yes, I tried with wikisend. Apparently I make some errors, as I cannot retrieve the file. I do not get the necessary Link, which is necessary. I follow
http://technicalforum.org/windows/how-e ... g-wikisend
I can upload my file and then there is nothing, no answer.
The how-to of technicalforum.org is quite clear but for me it does not work.
Sorry

Frank, could you try to compress (7zip, RAR, ZIP) the EL8 file and attach the archive (256K max) to your post?
