Support for EPS and TIFF?

Post by anderszvensson » Thu Dec 09, 2010 12:42 am

Hi, I read somewhere that Oxygen XML is supposed to have "limited support" for EPS and TIFF. What exactly does this consist of? I tried using both formats, and have the following problem:

The images are not viewable in the editor. I'm not sure if this is due to the file size or the file format (I've noticed before that images of a certain size do not show in any format).

Are these formats in fact not supported, or do I need to change some settings or something?

If you want to have TIFF support in the Author mode you need to download and deploy JAI Image IO Tools for your platform:

The simplest way to do this is to install JAI it in its own separate location(e.g. C:\Program Files\Java\JAI) and then copy the bin and lib folders from its installation directory to the JRE used by Eclipse(If you are using the Oxygen Eclipse plugin) or Oxygen(<oxygen-installation-folder>/jre)

I'm not sure if JAI covers EPS support, it doesn't seem to advertise it.

Note that the image size limit will still be enforced. You can allow large images to be loaded by enabling an option: Options -> Preferences -> Editor -> Pages -> Author, Show very large images
If unchecked, images larger than 6 megapixels (24MB uncompressed) will not be loaded and displayed in Author mode. Please be aware that this option is unchecked by default because of the large amounts of application memory that images of high resolution can occupy. As a result, an OutOfMemory error could occur which would practically make <oXygen/> unusable without a restart of the entire application.
