I am using DevIL to convert images between different formats. The library does this wonderfully however I can't seem to guarantee that my images are compressed in the same manner as they were created.
For example I have a bitmap BMP that I wish to convert to a tif B_to_Tiff. I can get a tif but I can't guarantee my tif will be of the same size as the original bitmap or at least uses the same compression algorithm as the original file.
Am I out of luck?
Well, for me, it is somewhat difficult to understand the question.
- BMPs are usually uncompressed
- different formats have different compression algorithms in general and there is nothing wrong with it
- the physical size of the image should be the same, unless there is a bug out there.
Could you please precise your question?
I understand your response. You have already answered my question.
It turns out my problem is based on how I cannot control to tags in a tiff image with the DevIL library. I will have to find another solution or write some code to be an intermediary between DevIL and my application.
