Questions about reading RLE files

Post by hiro-san »

Hello,

I am creating compressed RLE files with Adobe Photoshop CC2019.
Some RLE files (not all) cannot be read with ImageMagick.

ex.
>magick identify nomal.RLE
normal.RLE BMP3 965x623 965x623+0+0 8-bit sRGB 256c 8314B 0.000u 0:00.002

>magick identify error.RLE
identify: insufficient image data in file `error' @ error/bmp.c/ReadBMPImage/962.

Is this caused by Adobe Photoshop RLE compression?

Version: ImageMagick 7.0.8-56 Q16 x64 2019-07-21 http://www.imagemagick.org

NOMAL.RLE was generated with ImageMagick.
error.RLE was generated with Adobe Photoshop CC2019.

IM v7.0.7-28 can't read either of those files, normal.RLE and error.RLE. Windows Paint can read them; the images are almost totally black.


Sorry, I can't investigate further. Perhaps a developer will take a look.

Thank you, check for RLE files.

Sorry,I forgot to write first.
Both files can read with usual BMP viewer;Windows Paint, Adobe Photoshop, ACDSee,...

I use those files for mask files with image composition using ImageMagick.

An exception error occurred in ImageMagick when compositing, I checked and found that the RLE file could not be read correctly.

I hope the developers will solve this problem.
