    Default RIOT plugin for Irfan View

    You can download the latest RIOT IrfanView plugin from here:

    http://criosweb.ro/software/RIOT.dll

    or you can find it in the plugin collection.

    Currently this is the only RIOT.dll file compatible with IV.

    Hi Lucian,

    I moved your post to a new thread because RIOT has now become a plug-in

    Fore those interested in the stand-alone version, here is the link to the relevant post.

    Before you post ... fill in your OS and IV version in your profile.

    Great to have this plug-in embedded in IView 4.20 now.

    A first dev. question I have here is :
    If for example changing the picture to another resolution or restricting the filesize, the only option
    to keep the result is by a 'save as'. There seems no option to transfer the result to the main IView dialog, and go on.
    In most effects-dialogs it's the option 'apply to image'.
    Suppose you've done the correct filesize reduction, but decide to do an extra 'sharpen' on the result of the plug-in.

    When it was planned this plugin was intented as final processing step. The plugin does not modify the DIB used by IrfanView. Instead it creates a new DIB copy. I think this plugin should remain an output tool and should not alter the DIB from IV.

    NOTE : I shall refer to the internal image data stored by IV and RIOT as DIB (uncompressed device-independent bitmap stored in memory)

    Known issues:
    -When setting JPEG filesize the only supported options for saving are progressive, grayscale, disable color subsampling. The other options are not used (quality slider has no effect, metadata is automatically removed). This only applies when saving within IrfanView save dialog. When using RIOT main window itself you can choose to keep XMP, ICC and comments. The full version of the plugin will let you choose to keep or drop IPTC also.

    Maybe in the future the metadata options will be supported. I think Irfan should have disabled these options when using RIOT as output to not confuse users.
    The full version will have extended functionality, but it will be still available free of charge.
    The full version will be released soon.

    A processed (sharpened) image will require a different (higher) number of bits than the source. It would essentially be a different picture that has to be RIOTed to a given number of bytes again.

    Smile jpeg smoothening

    Once jpeg smoothening is included, Irfanview will be perfect for me. Thank you all.

    2 Lucian and j7n
    You've convinced me. I withdraw my comment about the transfer option.

    I have released the anticipated full version.
    Read more here:
    http://luci.criosweb.ro/riot/?cat=4

    The full version contains extended functionality over the one present in IrfanView and was created for those that need more functions. In the future the full version will grow. To install follow the steps in the text file "IrfanView install.txt"

    JPEG smoothening will be added in RIOT in a future release.

    If I choose to resample the image in the left pane the file size is reported as -1 bytes (0,,0 KiB) and in the title bar the original file name disappears (see attachments); is this right? In my opinion this should be replaced with something like "unknown file size" or with the file size of the initial image.
    Moreover on my machine if I press "Open..." or "Save as..." nothing happens.
