Hi Fernando ;

  FYI: I have written many PB  apps that manipulate BMP's, their meta data or even conversion FROM or TO BMP format from other image types. The key for image introspection, conversion, resizing, etc was to link outside the PB  apps to an external imaging tool. For my image related apps, I mostly have used either "ImageMagick" or "GraphicsMagick" products to perform imaging operations. There are many paid 3rd party imaging tools out there for this as well but, they tend to be very expensive. The above aforementioned tools are open source and thus free.

FYI ...

http://www.graphicsmagick.org

https://imagemagick.org/index.php

  For the ImageMagick product, it includes both a command-line interface and an OCX interface as well. I normally use the OCX interface for image "introspection" and then the command-Line interface for image manipulations.  You could use the OCX all the way through but the CL interface has more options (depending on what your App wants to accomplish image wise).

  The GraphicsMagick product is also free and open source. Its actually a "fork" of "ImageMagick" product but just has been "super tuned" for performance. So if your writing a batch PB App that is blasting through 100K+ images all the time - this product is awesome for through-put.  ;-)

Food for thought.  HTH

Hi Chris,

very good, thanks.



My intention is to be able to get the GRF code of an image to print on the ZEBRA printer, I am looking for a function, OCX or application that converts a BMP into GRF.

In the 32-bit versions of windows I use the ZIMAGLIT.EXE application but I can no longer use it since it does not work on 64-bit operating systems.



regards,

Fernando.

BMP is the file extension for the BITMAP format.

What exactly are you trying to do?
