From Tiff to SVG

Nader Belal

Hello everyone,

 

I would like to know if there was an option to turn back/convert embedded TIFF image in library part to their original SVG (or similar) using LP_XMLConverter ?

 

Thank you

A good friend of mine have once told me that I´m so brute that I´m capable of creating a GDL script capable of creating GDLs.

The original files are simply "lost" = you won't get them back.

SVGs are vector files, TIFF are raster files.

So there is just no way to retain that information. The LP_XMLConverter makes the TIFF first and then embeds it into the GSM.

I though that some how the Tiff file retained vector data.

Well, hopefully someday in the future we can use SVG directly.

This intermediate step was only done by GS because the performance was sluggish after they tried to have the UI pics as vector files.

(Note: That's however not a solely GS issue. Others have struggled with this, too.

David Rutten e.g., the creator of Grasshopper, tried as well and failed. There seems some progress in GH 2 in that regard tho.)

May be is more related with the OS, I don't just guessing
