Hi Roberto,

Currently, you need to load the images to get the size an dimensions. The JPEG header is easy to read:

TJpegHeader = packed record
SOI : array [1..2] of Byte;
APP0 : array [1..2] of Byte;
Length : array [1..2] of Byte;
Identifier : array [1..5] of Byte;
Version : array [1..2] of Byte;
Units : Byte;
Xdensity : array [1..2] of Byte;
Ydensity : array [1..2] of Byte;
XThumbnail : Byte;
YThumbnail : Byte;

This is what you find at the beginning of the file.

For TIF this is hard because the tags may be at different locations in the file.

For the JPG support in TIF files, it is unfortunate that imaging for Windows does not use the revised specs. TIFF is quite complex and Envision uses the reference library www.libtiff.org. Your best workaround would be to avoid using the JPG compression in TIFF and use Packbits instead, but your file will be larger.

Best regards,
