I forgot miker "BMP Datatype_092519.zip" works well on my AROS One 32Bit, also saving in BMP works, only problem encountered on a BMP image that is seen doubled and distorted, on Windows and OS3 the image is seen well.

I will send the current version of BMP Datatype to you later today to be included in version 2.3.0 if it isn't too late. The save functions work on Icaros 32bit but not yet 64bit. I'm still working on 64bit.

Thanks for your patience and for your hard work.


Don't worry. You're not late at all. Development cycle for 2.3.0 will still be quite long, as we're adding a completely new way to use Icaros Desktop.

You should be pleased to know that the 64bit version of the AROS BMP Datatype now works with save functions for 8bit, 24bit BMP, and 32bit BMPX.

It will act as a prototype for save functions for other Picture Datatypes such as ILBM and maybe TGA and PCX.

I have attached the binary for the 64bit BMP Datatype for you to try out. After renaming the old bmp.datatype and copying this one in its place test it with Multiview. Open a BMP file in MultiView then choose "Save As" from the menu to Save a new BMP file to a new location. I usually save to Ram Disk: to test.

I have narrowed down the problems with the 64bit version of the AROS BMP Datatype.

Since PNM Datatype already works I substituted the Save_BMP function for the Save_PNM function.
There was a slight problem with the BitmapFileHeader & BitmapInfoHeader so I also substituted the PNM header for the BMP.
 
So by using MultiView 64bit to open a test pnm file then choosing "Save As" from the menu MultiView used the Save_PNM function which is actually Save_BMP.
The result was that it saved a 24bit file with a PNM P6 header and BMP pixel data which is stored upside down and RGB for a BMP is swapped to BGR so red and blue are reversed. You can see that it successfully saved the BMP data. So the problem with the 64bit BMP save function is in the BitmapFileHeader & BitmapInfoHeader or file signature at the beginning of the BMP file.

salvo,

Were you able to download and compile the ABIv0 sources? Just curious.

Here is the newest version of AROS MultiView that I'm working on.

Please Note: This is the 64bit version so it WON'T WORK on Icaros Desktop 32bit (ABIv0).

Before renaming your current MultiView to copy the new one over for testing try this...Double click to open a picture file with MultiView 64bit. Once it is showing in a window choose from the MultiView menu "Open" and see what happens. Then rename the older MultiView and copy the new one to the same location. Try the same experiment and compare. Also try the new "Save As PNG".

Let me know what you think of the newer version and if there are any ideas about useful features for MultiView.

ok miker

It's really difficult to read the titles of the most recent topics. So I apologize in advance if I miss anyone's posts. Aros-Exec isn't working right for me.

but is possible uploading on archives?

I suppose so but it's the AROS 32bit BMP Datatype that will also be comitted to AROS 64bit sources when that part is ready.

The binary is to be included with the next release of Icaros Desktop 32bit, hopefully. The 64bit version isn't ready yet. I'm still working on that part.
