Subject [jira] [Commented] (IMAGING-162) BMP files with negative bitmap height are not supported
Date Sun, 22 Feb 2015 15:22:11 GMT


Myroslav Golub commented on IMAGING-162:

The format specifcation says the following:
The bottom-up configuration is the most common, because scan lines stored from the top down
cannot be compressed. 

Microsoft's documentation says:
If biHeight is negative, indicating a top-down DIB, biCompression must be either BI_RGB or
BI_BITFIELDS. Top-down DIBs cannot be compressed.

> The BMP format allows for negative values of the height field in the header. This means
that the image lines are stored top-down, not bottom-up as usual (i. e. the first pixel in
the pixel array would be in the top left corner of the image, not in the bottom left as usual).
However, when a negative-height bitmap is passed, the BmpImageParser attempts to create an
array of negative length, and a NegativeArraySizeException ensues.
