An update of the Graphics Mill is available now. There are some new features added and bugfixes are made:

  • Ability to work with animated GIFs (both read and write). For example now you can resize GIFs without loosing animation
  • ImportFromArray/ExportToArray methods of the Palette. It allows you to specify custom palettes (in the previous version you could only generate predefined palettes).
  • ClonePalette method of the Palette. It is useful when you make conversions between indexed and non-indexed pixel formats and would like to preserve old palette...
  • Now you can convert to indexed pixel formats with fixed palettes with variable colors count. For example you can convert using Web Safe palette with few colors.
  • MetaData has new property IsCorrupted. It checks whether file is corrupted (for example truncated JPEG files). Note, Graphics Mill still can load some of truncated JPEGs (missing pixels are displayed as gray). IsCorrupted property would be useful if you upload a lot of files and would like to find "bad" images and remove them automatically.
  • Old version did not handled correctly absence of GDI+. If you selected GDI+ drawing engine but GDI+ is absent on the system (for example on Windows 98 by default), the Graphics Mill crashed or returned "unexpected" error. Now it is handled properly and if GDI+ is absent, appropriate error message is displayed.
  • Method SwapChannel failed if you specify 3 as a parameter even if 4 channels is available. Now it returns error only if number of channels is less than 4.
  • Method DrawOnBitmap drawn CMYK on another CMYK improperly. It is visible in the main code sample when you apply mosaic on the selected part of the CMYK image (colors of the original image was translucent). Now it is drawn properly.
  • BitmapViewer control could not be resized in Delphi. Now the problem is fixed.
  • Paint event of the BitmapViewer was fired before control redraw (so this event was pretty useless). Now Paint event is fired after BitmapViewer redraws.
  • Some minor bugs are fixed.
If you have any questions or problems with updated version, please let us know.
