Description martin 1999-04-27 16:03:29 UTC
Trying to

 - export PNG with the Gimp, and
 - converting to PNG from different other formats
   (EPS, TIFF, or others) with ImageMagick
   (convert as well as display),

I get corrupted images. Basically, the left half of the
image appears twice, the right half being covered by
the 2nd copy of the left half.

I suspect the error to be in libpng. Recompiling the
source RPMs of libpng and ImageMagick on my machine
didn't help.

PS ImageMagick also seems to fail when producing BMP images.
    But probably for different reasons.

This is fixed in 6.0.

 I tried converting with Gimp bmp->png gif->png jpg ->png and
displayed results with ee, gimp and ImageMagick, all results matched
originals. Used ImageMagick's "convert" program to convert from
bmp->png gif->png jpg->png png->bmp gif->bmp jpg->bmp and all
displayed fined with ee, gimp and ImageMagick. Here's what I have
installed:

ImageMagick-devel-4.2.2-4
ImageMagick-4.2.2-4
gimp-1.0.4-3
gimp-data-extras-1.0.0-4
gimp-libgimp-1.0.4-3
gimp-devel-1.0.4-3
libpng-1.0.3-2
libpng-devel-1.0.3-2
ee-0.3.8-7
