Re: Can't Pack with SaveToFile() if PDFA is true for NewPDF(

Ok. Thanks. That's good to know. I think I can live without PDF/A for now.

Re: Can't Pack with SaveToFile() if PDFA is true for NewPDF(

That's a shame because the size of a PDF/A with only a few characters of text is around 950kb. With packing it is around 5kb. That's a huge difference, especially since I'm dealing with extremely large volumes of documents. I don't think I would pay for the upgrade just for this feature since I just...

Can't Pack with SaveToFile() if PDFA is true for NewPDF() v8

I'm using GDPicture.NET Ultimate version 8 with .NET 4.0 in 64bit. I noticed that PDF files I've been generating with the GDPicturePDF class are extremely large. I finally traced the problem to the PDF/A parameter when using the NewPDF() method. If the PDF/A parameter is true, then PackDocument has ...

GDPicture.NET 7 PDF processing with 64 bit

I saw the announcement for GDPicture.NET ver 8 will have support for full PDF management in 64 bit. (This is extremely awesome.) Did or will any of recent GDPicture.NET 7 releases ever get support for 64 bit PDF processing, like PdfRenderPageToGdPictureImage or PdfReaderExtractImage etc? I've been c...

Re: Using in 64bit app

Hello, Is there any progress or timeframe as to when a 64bit version of gdPicture.net will be released? I ran into many memory problems having to use the 32bit version. The performance and memory gains would be most welcome. ~ Don ~ Hi, You are absolutely right for the memory allocation. However, we...

Re: PDF + Compression, RotateAngle converts to 24bpp

I use the RotateAngle method because the UI I created allows 360 degrees of rotation. A user could and most likely will pick 0, 90, 180, or 270 but I didn't realize the image is converted 24bpp for the RotateAngle method (vs the standard Rotate method with Rotate/Flip enums). I would expect the Rota...

Feature Request: ICR

GdPicture.NET Ultimate is already an incredible product. It would be even better if it could do Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) to read handwriting as easily as OCR.

Re: PDF OCR + Compression, PDF Encryption + PDFA

Ok. I spent all day trying to isolate the problem. I finally figured it out. I have a large UI for setting all the various GdPicture parameters. Part of the UI allows you to resize, rotate, etc before creating output. The bitonal compression will fail if ROTATE is called (even 0 degrees) after the i...

Re: PDF OCR + Compression, PDF Encryption + PDFA

My application is very large and complex (10,000 lines of code). The basics of the relevant code are: create the PDF output set the bitonal compression (none, ccitt4, or flate) open the 24bpp color 2-page multipage TIF input file get first page, convert to 1bpp with 128 thresh, add to PDF switch to ...

Re: PDF OCR + Compression, PDF Encryption + PDFA

Partially good news. I tested this issue in GdPicture.Net 6.5.1 and the behavior is better, but not quite what I'd expect. Before if I took a 24bpp color two page TIF and converted each page to 1bpp and added to PDF (OCR or not didn't matter), the output would always be the same size as the original...

Re: Multifram GIF - Infinite Loop Doesn't Work

Great news! I just tested GdPicture.NET 6.5.1
and setting Loop value to 0 now creates an infinite loop
when outputting animated multiframe GIF files.

Re: Converting ICO to multipage TIF or PDF without OCR Issue

Good news! There is no problem in GdPicture.NET. Just like you suspected, it was a mistake in my code. I had declared the variable that held the width for the PdfNewPage() and PdfDrawImage() methods correctly as a single, but I declared the height as an integer by mistake! It wasn't a problem with t...

Re: Converting ICO to multipage TIF or PDF without OCR Issue

I tried your code and it does work. There must be a mistake somewhere. I noticed that the heights I am getting from the icons are all 0. I will review all my code thoroughly. Thank you for your help. I'll post if I figure it out.

Re: Converting ICO to multipage TIF or PDF without OCR Issue

Sorry, I just saw your previous posts. The code I posted is not the actual code. The actual code is much more complex, and I definitely declare all variables and use option explicit, etc. Broken down and simplified for this problem, those are the methods being used. If the values returned by PdfAddI...
