Subject Re: [imaging] Read/Write Bilevel TIFF A4 image thumbnail
Date Sun, 02 Mar 2014 10:42:17 GMT
The TIFF specification ( does not
provide for a thumbnail. However, since a TIFF can have multiple pages, you
could (for example) assume a convention internal to your application that
creates a second image that is a thumbnail of the first (and you'd have to
create the thumbnail yourself). You would have to handle this inside your
app. Another TIFF viewer, like GIMP, would simply see a 2-page TIFF.

I've not created multipage TIFFs with the Commons Imaging, so I've got no
sample code to offer.
