TIF Patch Files

Post by Roy Reed » Tue Jan 15, 2019 5:05 pm

Is there a reason why patches are exported as multi-page TIF files with the patch at various resolutions? PSD, JPG, PNG, etc are all exported as just a single image. Not all image editors can open multi-page TIFs.

Hi Roy,
Pano2VR 6 does this with all TIFFs, tiled multi resolution tiff, for fast loading especially if you export a large equirectangular image.
Is it causing you a problem or is this just an observation.
Regards,

I have an image editing program (Corel PhotoPaint) that just won't open then. Not a real problem, I just exported as PSD instead.
