PDF-Maker V1 and images

 [1/10] from: kpeters:otaksoft at: 13-Aug-2007 15:10


While I am getting the hang of graphics & textboxes, images still elude me: Given an base-64 encoded JPG in C:\Logo.r logo: load %/c/logo.r [ page size 215.9 279.4 image 20 100 100 100 logo ] produces read errors in Acrobat Reader ("Read less image data than expected.") What am I missing or doing wrong? Thanks, as always, for all help Kai

I don't think PDF-MAKER supports base-64 encoded images. You must pass it an image. LOGO is a binary!, with the jpeg inside, so try LOADing it a second time to make it an image!. eg: logo: load load %/c/logo.r Regards, Anton.

Thanks for your suggestion, Anton ~ problem persists, though: Test the logo to see if good:
>> logo: load %/c/logo.r
== #{ FFD8FFE000104A46494600010101012C012C0000FFE100164578696600004D4D 002A00000008000000000000FFDB00430005030404040305040404050505...
>> write/binary %/c/new.jpg logo
yes, Gimp thinks it's perfectly fine build-page: function[ rec [object!]][ tmp ] [ logo: load load %/c/logo.r [ ; each page must be a block page size 215.9 279.4 ; image 20 100 100 60 logo still gives the same error as before, though I now do see the top part of the logo with a big black box (presumably of the image size I specified?) below. Any more ideas? Thanks, Kai

Hi Kai,
> yes, Gimp thinks it's perfectly fine
What does rebol think, though ? eg: load %/c/new.jpg view layout [image %/c/new.jpg] Anton.

You can't pass a BINARY! value, you must pass an IMAGE! value. HTH, Gabriele.

Hi Anton ~ rebol is just as happy as Gimp... one good-looking logo! Hi Gabriele ~ you must have missed my last email - I am doing a double load as per Anton's suggestion. Kai

Does TYPE? return IMAGE! ? Regards, Gabriele.

build-page: function[ rec [object!]][ tmp ] [ logo: load load %/c/logo.r print type? logo [ page size 215.9 279.4 ; image 20 100 100 60 logo Gabriele ~ Yes, it does return image Kai

Ok. Which version of REBOL, and which version of PDF Maker? Regards, Gabriele.

Gabriele ~ your question for the PDF-maker version has prompted me to not just look at the one available from the Rebol library (1.24.0) which I had been using. I found a version 1.27.1 on what appears to be your website and it works just fine with that - thank you. Kai PS: I might be a good idea to update the library with 1.27.1 On Fri, 17 Aug 2007 12:15:52 +0200, Gabriele Santilli wrote:
