    TIFF FIle Support

    Hi

    I am developing an application using Symbian C++ on S60 3rd Edition FP1.

    I have to handle tif files in my application.
    As much as I know TIFF is a flexible, adaptable file format for handling images and data within a single file.
    So my queries here are:

    1. Can we use image stored in tiff using ICL as we do for png or bmp files?

    2. Is there any API set to read data from tiff files?

    Thanks
    Thanks & Regards

    Why is it better for you if someone else types tiff in the search field of the SDK Help?

    Hi wizard_hu_

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have never worked with tiff file and it is new for me so I first looked into the tiff file format specification on the http://www.awaresystems.be/imaging/tiff/faq.html url.
    Here in answer of first question it says that the tiff file can contain private tags to hold application specific information. So I want to know how to read tiff file to get the data stored in the private tags of a tiff file.

    Yes I looked into the SDK help before posting my queries and found that the ICL(Image Conversion Library) supports the tiff image file. My first query was to just confirm it, if someone have used it for tiff files.
    Also I want to get the data stored in the tiff file, in private tags. So my second query was, is there any API set, which deal with tiff file, to get the data from the private tags. Or there is any alternate way to do so.

    With due respect to the forum my intention to put query was to just get direction if sombody already have done this with tiff files.

    Thanks
    Thanks & Regards

    If you want more advanced functionality that you can get from the ICL for TIFF files, then libtiff is a trivial port using Open C.

    Hope that helps,

    Thanks Mark.

    Yes as you said about libtiff library I also came to know about this while searching for tiff on web. But I am using Symbian C++ and I do not know whether I can make use of libtiff or not.
    Thanks & Regards

    Yes, you can call C libraries that use Open C from Symbian C++. Whether this is sensible for deployment (or how you need to deploy the app) depends on the purpose of your app (commercial, freeware, reasearch etc) and which devices you are targetting with it. Open C is in the firmware of devices from 3rd FP2 onwards. Check the Open C/C++ DiBo for discussion of deployment issues to older devices.
