Picnic curiositiy

I'm testing some of the JPEG and JPEG2000 features of IPP 6.0 update using the Picnic app. If I open the resultant files
in Photoshop, the dpi is always 72 dpi and the wrong size. For instance a 4inch x 4inch 300dpi JPEG saved out of Picnic
shows in Photoshop as 72 dpi and a width and height of 16.667 inches. Is there meta data that defines the dpi ?

Thanks

I have also seen this lack of pixel size (dpi) meta data handling in IPP (all versions) with Jpeg and Jpeg2000.
I had to patch the IPP samples source code to add load/save of pixel size; and with each new IPP samples update, I must redo the patching.

I have also added this issue as a Premier Support item, but it has now been there as a feature request for several years.

I really think IPP should support this because both Jpeg and Jpeg2000 (and Jpeg XR) has meta fields for it.

Hello,

The possibility to get and store image resolution information was added to UIC JPEG codec in IPP 6.0. Please see JPEGDecoder/JPEGEncoder API

void GetJFIFApp0Resolution(JRESUNITS* units, int* xDensity, int* yDensity);
void SetJFIFApp0Resolution(JRESUNITS units, int xdensity, int ydensity)

Adding similar API for JPEG2000 codec is in plan for the future releases.

Regards,
Vladimir
