Hi

If you are referring to your email concerns, we'll shortly release an update to fix corrupted component icons. Also any code that references:

ImageEnView1.fIEBitmap

Should be changed to:

ImageEnView1.IEBitmap

Today i installed the new version. Very great work i only had to change the Property for imagebottomtext.

Now my Question:
We developed a shop management software including Fileupload and Download/View of Productimages.
Now our customer want support for webp. One Function is, Open a .jpg or .png File and then convert to .webp and upload to webserver.
I changed the imageen demo and added "TIEMiscPluginsImageMagick.RegisterPlugin();". Without Register i can load webp. When i use the Register Function preview and loaded image are white.
When i try to write, is does nothing. I tried this with dll in exe Folder and Installer from ImageMagick website - no succcess.
How can i get webp with ImageMagick running?


Best Regards
Dscho

Hi Dscho

If you do not call TIEMiscPluginsImageMagick.RegisterPlugin(); then ImageEn will use the default WebP codec on your system to load the image (via WIC).

If you call TIEMiscPluginsImageMagick.RegisterPlugin() it will force loading via ImageMagick, but loading will fail if ImageMagick cannot be found (Presumably ImageEnView1.IO.LoadFromFile() returned false for you).

So ensure that you have ImageMagick on the system, or better in the same folder as the EXE.

When you run the ImageMagick demo, does it say "32bit Plug-In registered"?

Hi Nigel,

i tried the dll version and the Image Magick installer.

1. This is the result of the dll:



32-bit version found but no result for extensions/formats

When i use the debugger the result of function IEFileFormatGetExtCount(...
is 0.


When i go down into the code on iexBitmaps and the function IEFileFormatGetInfo(...
in the for each loop does have no result on "if result.FileType = FileType then";




2. Installed ImageMagick:


ImageMagick are not found.
I restartet windows after installation



I hope this informations can help you on errorhandling.

Best Regards
Dscho

Hi Dscho

Sorry, you shouldn't use the legacy ImageMagick.dll version. Click the yellow "Download" button beside "ImageMagick plug-in" and unzip all the files in the folder

"\Binaries 32bit\Core_Files\"

To your exe folder.

If you still have issues, post your DLL log:

Hi Dscho

Please email me for an update that allows quality to be set using 'ImageMagick:Quality'

// Save a JPEG as WebP at 95% quality
ImageEnView1.IO.LoadFromFile( 'D:\im.jpg' );
ImageEnView1.IO.Params.Dict.Clear();
ImageEnView1.IO.Params.Dict.Insert( 'ImageMagick:Quality', 95 );
ImageEnView1.IO.SaveToFile( 'D:\Image_out.WebP' );


Plus other options such as webp:lossless:

// Save a PNG file as a lossless WebP with maximum compression
ImageEnView1.IO.SaveToFile('D:\Image.png');
ImageEnView1.IO.Params.Dict.Insert( 'ImageMagick',  TIEDictionary.Create() );
ImageEnView1.IO.Params.Dict.GetDictionary('ImageMagick').Insert( 'webp:lossless', 'True' );
ImageEnView1.IO.Params.Dict.GetDictionary('ImageMagick').Insert( 'webp:method', 6 );
ImageEnView1.IO.SaveToFile('D:\Image_out.webp');


Please start a new forum topic if you need more detail.
