You say the mode is 8 bit. I might be wrong, but I don’t believe JPEG supports 8 bit (256 color) images. Even if it does technically, the format is not really intended for 8 bit images, but rather 16 bit or higher. When I generate an 8 bit indexed color image in Photoshop and look at the Save

If your image was 256 colors, the Index > Mode menu would show Indexed Color checked, instead of RGB Color. The RGB/8 Bit you’re seeing in the Photoshop menu actually reads “8 Bits/Channel” — an RGB image is 3 channels (red, green, blue), 8 bits each, so 24 bit color. Again, if you really

Without knowing exactly what you're trying to accomplish, one way is to display only a few rows of buttons beyond what will fit comfortably on a screen, and when scrolling takes place, "recycle" the rows around to the end (or beginning) with new glyphs applied. Assuming all the characters are

The thing about using a graphic gradient (as opposed to an image) is the graphic is infinitely more flexible: - variable size (no loss of quality when resizing) - variable colors - variable transparency As far as exporting goes, last I checked, I don’t think ink effects export intact, even when

Hi Jonathan: Just doing some simple tests, your script is great. Thanks for sharing it on the list. Two minor improvements I would suggest: 1) After the mouseUp handler, add a mouseRelease handler to trigger deceleration/stop when the mouse is released outside of the target control. on

You can use the effectivePoints to get the points of any graphic shape, but depending on the size, your oval may produce too many points. In any event, your source oval doesn't need to be perfect. If you reference a "decent" number of points along the shape of the oval, your image will have the

Maybe it’s more accurate to say “one single path definition” because you aren’t limited to a single vector path. You can create compound graphics from multiple paths as is done in many icons and graphics. For example: go url "http://tactilemedia.com/download/svg_sample.livecode; Regards,

Keep in mind, there’s also the lockUpdates property of groups, which while differing mechanically “under the hood”, essentially causes the same perceived result — while enabled, a group’s rect is not changed when its child objects are resized/repositioned. I don’t know how all these are

The most important rule to follow when establishing any new property should be: Don't use "dont". The application of a "negative property" should never have been established (dontWrap, I'm talking to you). Properties should always be non-negative and simply enabled or disabled depending on

Map Widget with Custom Marker

Hi All: Wondering if it's possible to use a custom marker with the map widget. I want to continuously track and show the user's location with a custom icon, but can't find any way to overlay an image on the widget, as it seems to be the equivalent of a web view. Thanks for any suggestions.
