I use my SL3000 to download images from my camera, unfortunately the image viewer software doesn't want to view these pictures.

Are there any other there that would accept 6 megapixel pictures on the SL3000?

You could try tkcGallery.

It works for my 5 mp camera.

A demo is available

Thanks, but it runs quite slow on my PDA. Any other imaging preview software?
Cresho
there is a package that works for the zaurus.

image viewer...


here you go



photostorage_1.0.0-en_arm.ipk

if you cant find it, ill email it to you. do a search in google or here in the forums. i got it from the forums dont dont have a link to it.

its the japanesse one but with all english.

Im not using it but when i did, it was fast, reliable. i am actually using tkcgallery because it also displays information of the jpeg on the right plain like apature, speed, ligthing, etc. author...yada yada.

and i know your gona ask for another question like

what is the best image editor? VisualQ

but we have a problem...swap size on the z is ver limited so now you need this software

qtopia-memoryapplet_1.1.1a_arm.ipk

qtopia memory aplet tells you how much memory you have on the taskbar. Not only that, clicking on it gives you options in enabling swap files on your cf or sd card. up to 64mb well over the limit for opening those 6megapixle images and to edit under visual q embosing, resizeing, trimming....you name it.

Let me know if you need more info.

I assume this requires an sd card with a both an ext2 and a swap partition on it? Or is it some sort of virtual swap?

I ask because my SD card is a 1gb card that is formatted fat32, and although I can spare 64mb I want to be able to take it out of my Z and plug it into my laptop, which I can't do if it's formatted ext2, right?

Thanks for all the hard work you both did, but I would like to make sure it is compatible with my C1K before I try to use it.

Regards,

gdog
Cresho
it seems to work with any partitions.

i have fat.

I have FAT32 on my Hitachi Microdrive and it works beautifully.

Thanks Maslovsky and Cresho, it's very handy.

I agree. Thank you both. You guys Rock!

Thanks for the advice. I can view JPG no problem, but I can't view NEF files (RAW images taken when using digital SLR cameras).

Any other ideas?
Cresho
i can open very big jpegs but now i have certain jpegs i cant open...strange. i might have to mess with my digital camera settings and figure out what type of size compression visualq hates.

Depending on the geographic region where bought, cameras may use PAL or other formats rather than jpeg. Where did your camera come from? Most allow you to choose the format also....Just a thought.

You can find a decoder for the NEF format and information on applications using it here
Raw Digital Photo Decoding in Linux

As my Z is half broken I cannot try them out myself ... huh.gif

OK, so I downloaded and installed the memory applet, set up a 64Mb swap file on my SD card. Very cool. Thank you!

I then installed VisualQ (v. 0.5.6E), and I can open smaller jpgs just fine, the largest so far being 607Kb.

But when I try to open larger jpg pictures, for instance of my Dad's pocket watch, which are in the range of 2Mb, nothing happens. All I see is a blank palette in VisualQ, and at the bottom left it shows W:0 H:0. Under File Information it says the picture is 0 pixels wide and 0 pixels high, but size is 2071603 bytes.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

gdog

not sure-

i know some of the snaps i can open up but others i cant. I just need to play with my camera settings.

Thanks for that, do you know if there is a version that's already compiled because I'm not familiar with compiling source files.

No I don't know about a compiled package. In order to compile dcraw you need to have the JPEG library (I cannot say if this is available for the Z) and of course gcc (that is part of the Linux in the Z). Then you simply type gcc -o dcraw -O3 dcraw.c -lm -ljpeg in a shell (terminal window) and you get the executable under the name dcraw.

Maybe other people with live Zauri may give more info on this.
