Subject: Re: TIFF open error, tag 292 missing
In reply to: Knud Boucher 's message, "Re: TIFF open error" on 12:05:07 09/07/00 Thu

Hi Knud,

I have located the problem. The file you sent me has many default tag
missings, one
in in particular, TIFFTAG_GROUP3OPTIONS = 292, which is the first time I
see a tiff file without this tag. Other tags, 296, 278 are also missing,
but Envision is using defaults for those tags.

Here is the new case statement in ReadDibFromTiffStream:

case CompressTag of
COMPRESSION_NONE : Dib.Compression := tcNone;
COMPRESSION_CCITTRLE : Dib.Compression := tcGroup3_1d;
if (Group3Options and GROUP3OPT_2DENCODING) <> 0
Dib.Compression := tcGroup3_2d
Dib.Compression := tcGroup3_1d;
{ MB. Sep 11, 2000. Some fax 3 images don't specidy
1d or 2d, so
a default of 1d is used. I'm not sure if this is
according to the tiff specification }
Dib.Compression := tcGroup3_1d;

COMPRESSION_CCITTFAX4 : Dib.Compression := tcGroup4;
COMPRESSION_PACKBITS : Dib.Compression := tcPackbits;
COMPRESSION_DEFLATE : Dib.Compression := tcZLib;
COMPRESSION_JPEG : Dib.Compression := tcJPEG;

raise ETiffError.Create(
end; { case }
