Hi, I’ve encountered a curious problem.
Using the command line version of G’Mic (gmic-cli-2.4.1-win64) on Windows 7 to read a file, resize it using the scale_dcci2x option, and output a new file:
Resizing using a jpeg for input and output works as expected.
Resizing using a tif for input and output, something bizarre happens. While Irfanview shows the file as I expect it to be, both GIMP and Rawtherapee show a bastardized version of the image - as shown below.
If I open the tif with IrfanView and then save it, all is good and both GIMP and Rawtherapee correctly read the file.
So does anyone know what it is about G’Mic and tifs that causes programs (RT, GIMP, Photoshop, Vueprint, Windows Photo Viewer,) to not like the tif? Note that LibreOffice Draw won’t even open the file throwing an unknown image format error.
