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


Michael Groß commented on IMAGING-162:

[~mgolub] Thank you for the comprehensive information and for the example bitmap! Especially
examples from the wild are very helpful because I can write tests using them. 

I created to propose a patch
which fixes this issue. First I am adding a test which reproduces the problem. Next I will
fix it by throwing an exception if a bitmap with negative height is provided and leave a TODO
comment on place. Then I will try to read such files without error and change the test accordingly.

> 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.
