Subject [jira] [Commented] (IMAGING-182) Enhance TIFF writer to support grayscale images
Date Fri, 15 Apr 2016 11:40:25 GMT

Gary Lucas commented on IMAGING-182:
------------------------------------

I have one already and would be glad to submit it, but I need a little information before
I proceed.  The unit test means a modification to the TiffRoundtripTest.java module, which
I already changed for Item 170.  If I add the change for this item, it would conflict with
the older patch. So, there are a few ways to proceed: 

 (a) I combine the changes for both items into a single patch (easiest for me, maybe not the
best for the project)   
 (b) The decision on whether to accept the 170 changes is deferred or rejected...  I scrap
the 170 changes in my version of the code and re-implement the 182 changes on a clean copy
of the Apache code...
 (c) The project integrates the 170 changes and I submit a clean patch for 182.

Any of the above are fine with me.

Finally, I note that the GeoTIFF specification permits the storage of data in several different
combinations of formats.  Apache Commons Imaging can read almost all of them, but only writes
a few. This patch implements just one among many.  So from the perspective of having a "complete
implementation of the spec", this change only moves us a little further along.  On the other
hand, many of the remaining formats are pretty specialized, and probably not worth the effort.

> The current implementation does not permit to storage of grayscale images when writing
a TIFF output.  Grayscales come in handy for converting satellite image products to GeoTIFFs
for display in GIS applications.  The current implementation can read grayscale formats but
cannot writing them.
