[REBOL] Re: Image processing and embedding metadata in images?

From: jasonic:panix at: 12-Nov-2001 19:54

Hi Carl Thanks for the IFF tip. Helpful because I can surely learn something. good reading. In my Amiga days I was more conccerned with having too much fun in DPaint than header format design. Are you suggesting using IFF as an common image storage and transfer format? Does REBOL handle it on all systems? IFF is perhaps not directly helpful, because I must work mostly with standard file formats. By embedding data in the image file correctly, the files can pass through any 3rd party software, transfer protocol etc. An essential consideration. The whole idea is that less is more. Less pieces are more useful. Less punctuation. Less database work. Less for people to track when they know what they want to say.. etc I gues I need to look much more deeply into some graphic formats. Iseem to remember ther was some cool stuff related to NCSA deevloped HDF format for sceintic miagng. That has survived quite well and to here may be a lot of libarires to apply for conversion. hmmm PNG maybe the best REBOL bet. For example storing stuff in a named layer.. Any REBOL tools out there for browsing binary image formats? - Jason
