Subject [jira] [Commented] (IMAGING-138) Provide some Ant tasks to perform image conversions
Date Fri, 08 Dec 2017 07:31:00 GMT


Bruno P. Kinoshita commented on IMAGING-138:

Came here to comment in a similar line as Benedikt. I feel like this contribution (which besides
tabs vs. spaces, looks great) doesn't really match the nature of the project.

It could be hosted under your own repository in GitHub/GitLab/etc. And we can then alter add
a section for related links in the project site.

Or it could be simplified, removing the ant part, and made into an use case example, as the
WriteExifMetadataExample (
The code must reside in the test source directory, so that it is not shipped with the code.
And would be useful for reference for others.

>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: Discussion
> I suggest to add some Ant tasks to perform image conversions into Commons Imaging, especially
from/to formats that aren't supported by any known Java library. I could have written a custom
Ant task for my own project but I think it would be better for this project.
> In my case, I need to convert a PNG image into ICNS in order to use it as a logo for
a Mac application bundle and I use Ant as a build tool. As I don't generate this bundle under
Mac (I'm under Mageia Linux), I can't use Mac build-in tools to create the .icns file and
using external softwares to make the conversion each time I modify the original logo is annoying.
I'll probably have the same problem with .ico files.
> Please indicate how I should modify the Maven pom file in order to compile the custom
tasks and I'll be ready to contribute.
