"Preserve black" option in Image-XChange?

Post by gjlapore » Fri Jan 07, 2011 9:34 pm

We are currently evaluating the Image-XChange SDK.

We are currently using a Leadtools in our software to allow the display of TIFF images. Leadtools has an option to "preserve black" when the tiff is being displayed. Since we are working with images of construction blueprints, this is a very important option for us as linework disappears when zoomed out unless there is a preserve black option.

Does Image-XChange have a similar option?

I attached a pair of files. One shows a particular TIFF in one of your sample applications. the other shows the same TIFF in our EarthWorks software using Leadtools.

Hi Greg,

Please ensure you have zipped the files before attempting to attach/post or they will not be posted, also you should be aware that Image-Xchange is unlikley to be developed beyond its current version as a standalone library and will most likely only exist from the next release as a core component of our PDF SDK's and functionality will therefore be limited to that logical for interaction (in/out) in relation to PDF file manipulation - there is just not sufficient demand to maintain it as a standalone commercial tool when there are so many good open source tools etc.
If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.

Best regards

John -

Thanks for the feedback.

So, is there any other SDK that you have that will allow us to open and display TIFFS?

Hi Greg,

Only Image-XChange and there is nothing to stop you using that provided you accept that development of image only functionality will not be maintained in the future ...

If that suits yours needs all well and good - but if you are committed long term to TIFF as a format then leadtools or one of the many others (e.g. Open source/license etc) may be better for you - or if you purchase or own our PDF-XChange SDK we will offer Image-Xchange as is now and with TIFF compatibility maintained etc on an ongoing basis.

HTH
