SplitMultiImage 1.0 released
The first version of a new tool called SplitMultiImage is now available.

Starting with AmigaOS 3.5, the picture.datatype documentation defined two new tags (PDTA_GetNumPictures and PDTA_WhichPicture), which allowed subclasses to return different images from the same file, where relevant. For example, TIFF image files often contain more than one image, and WarpTIFF.datatype is able to decode any of those images on request, returning any of the images to the application.

Unfortunately, not many applications have made use of this feature (in fact, at the time of writing, Oliver is not aware of any) and can therefore read only the first image in a file. After requests from WarpTIFF users wanting to know of software capable of reading all the pages in multi-page TIFF fax files, Oliver decided to write SplitMultiImage. Although not as nice as Multiview having this capability built-in, SplitMultiImage at least allows all the images to be viewed by extracting all the images from a file and saving them separately as IFF-ILBM files.

SplitMultiImage is not restricted to TIFF files - in theory, it will work with any datatypes supporting the new tags and for image formats that can contain multiple images. (cg) (Translation: cg)

MorphOS: New, unnamed picture viewer
Kiero programmed a new so far unnamed picture viewer (165 KB). As soon as it has a name it will be available on Aminet.

  • Easy disk navigation with mouse or keyboard.
  • Images loaded with datatypes or builtin routines (for JPEG and SunRaster)
  • Image processing options like color balance/resizing (same algos like in ACDSee)/levels adjustment/etc...
  • Saving in JPEG or PNG (with or without alpha channel)
  • Loading/displaying images with alphachannel (background is visible).
  • Scaling of graphics during display (with optional bilinear filtering).
  • Drag&drop support for files/directories.
  • Fullscreen mode and a possibility to minimize GUI elements.
  • It's slow;)
The following MUI-classes are needed:
Better Balance
Better String (Aminet)

AmigaOS4: Two High-end audio cards supported
Davy Wentzler has added A1/OS4 support for the Terratec Aureon Sky 5.1 and the professional Terratec Phase88.

These cards have 24-bit/96KHz capabilities and are based around the Envy24 and Envy24HT chipsets, which can be found on a number of high-end audio cards. Similar cards like the Aureon 7.1 Space and EWS88MT should work too, although they are currently untested.

With the Envy24 driver, support for cards like M-Audio Revolution 7.1, Prodigy192, M-Audio Delta and Audiophile cards are coming in reach. However, due to the fact that these cards can all be configured differently, they will not work out of the box, but support may be added later. Please send a mail to if you own any of these cards and want to have support in the future.

As AHI programs tend to expect stereo 16-bit modes for recording and may crash when getting 32-bit data, the AHI inputs are defined as "Line in 16-bit", "Line in 24-bit", etc. The 16-bit input modes will be compatible with all programs, but the 24-bit ones must have special support (AHIST_S32S mode). Also, because AHI can only handle stereo in/out, the Phase88 driver is merely a research device for the upcoming new audio system which will be able to fully use its 8 inputs and outputs.
