Error when opening TIFF file

Hi there

 

When opening a TIFF file, I get this error:

System.ArgumentException: Parameter is not valid.
   at System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(Stream stream, Boolean useEmbeddedColorManagement, Boolean validateImageData)
   at PaintDotNet.Data.GdiPlusFileType.OnLoad(Stream input) in D:\src\pdn\src\PaintDotNet\Data\GdiPlusFileType.cs:line 127
   at PaintDotNet.FileType.Load(Stream input) in D:\src\pdn\src\Data\FileType.cs:line 496
   at PaintDotNet.Functional.Func.Eval[T1,TRet](Func`2 f, T1 arg1) in D:\src\pdn\src\Base\Functional\Func.cs:line 158

Using v4.0.9 on Windows 7 Pro x64.

I can open the TIFF file okay in "Microsoft Office Picture Manager"

 

I uploaded the file here: http://gpsleg.dk/Solsikkeolie.tiff

 

Do tell if you need any more information.

 

Best regards

 

Henrik

GDI+ can't open the file, therefore Paint.NET won't be able to open it. Not much that can be done here.

 

(GDI+ is a Windows component for image and graphics stuff. In Windows 7 and later, GDI+ is actually a wrapper around WIC, the Windows Imaging Component. So really, it's WIC that can't open the file.)

Try installing gdi+ and see if that helps. Interestingly enough, I can open your image in my PDN installed in Linux under Wine. I did install gdi+ on that virtual drive.

 

GDI+ is a component that is built into Windows; it isn't something you'd install (on Windows).

 

I'm pretty sure the Wine implementation of GDI+ is either using Cairo or simply the X server. So you can't compare apples to oranges.

What's interesting here, is that I can't open that .tiff file on PDN v4.0.9 in Win10. I can however open it fine in PhotoShop v7 (14 year old program) along with Irfanview on the same system. I find that fascinating, even though I have no idea why that is. 

 

I wonder if it has to due with the Alpha Channel in the tiff image? The Alpha Channel is correctly displayed in PhotoShop, but everything else I've tried, just flattens it. It's also encoded with CMYK colorspace.

 

If anyone is interested, here is the metadata on the tiff file as reported by Gimp:

Looks to me like the problem is in the ability for PDN to open a CMYK Color tiff file. I imported the OP's tiff file in PhotoShop, changed color mode from CMYK to RGB and exported to tiff. It opened fine in PDN v4.0.9 in Win10 and the Alpha Channel was displayed correctly.

 

That's my unscientific analyst anyway..........
