Desperating seek a TIF image library!!!

Post by peridot1 »

Not hard, I know ... except that what I need is a library that allows for the opening and saving of TIFF images that includes an ordinal number-based DLL.

If anyone know of any product out there, public domain or otherwise, I'd be very greatful to hear about it. This is a serious situation!

Thank you!

Win DLL ?

:) Hello !

• Do you mean a Windows DLL ? If so, I fear that it isn't that possible, AFAIK only bitmaps (*.BMP), cursors (*.CUR)
and icons (*.ICO) are supported as image resources in these libraries.
- Under other *NIX based OSs, I don't know, maybe could you post in the corresponding section here
if you are running such an OS.

peridot1, as Clo has written already, you have to specify what kind of library you want: Are you looking for a DLL that can contain TIF images. Or is it a programming library for reading and writing TIF images? The latter can be achieved using GFL SDK.

should have been clearer ... sorry.

I'm looking for an API or SDK that will let me work with TIF images in a Windows environment. The catch is that it has to be in the old DLL far Pascal format - that is: it needs to use ordinal numbers.

I'll have a look at the one you suggested, halmut. Thank you!
