Hi there:

I'm tryingto crop an image with Image::Magick but not at the TopLeft position. I'm ussing this:

#!/usr/bin/perl
use Image::Magick;

my $imImage = Image::Magick->new;
$imImage->Read("try.gif");
$imImage->Crop(geometry=>"50x20+40+60");
print "Content-type: image/gif\n\n" . $imImage->ImageToBlob(magick=>'gif');

But what I get is an image like this:

|<----------- 90 ----------------->|
              |<------- 50 ------->|

+----------------------------------+ -  
|                                  | ^
|    TRANSPARENT                   | |
|                                  | |
|                                  | |
|             +--------------------+ 80 -
|             |                    | |  ^
|             |   DESIRED CROPPED  | |  |
|             |                    | |  20
|             |       IMAGE        | |  |
|             |                    | v  v
+-------------+--------------------+ -  -

What's wrong with this?

PS:

- If I use print "Content-type: image/png\n\n" . $imImage->ImageToBlob(magick=>'PNG'); seems to work.
- Explorer renders the cropped image well, but mozilla no.

Sorry but proportional font doesn't show the table OK. Just C&P on any text editor (Ultraedit, textpad, vi, emacs, etc)

Does it help if you add statement below before first print?
binmode(STDOUT);

That's not the problem.

I also did:

print "Content-type: image/gif\n\n";
binmode STDOUT;
$imImage->Write('gif:-');

with the same results.

Does the problem only occur in Mozilla? It seems to work alright with gif in IE
Is the problem that image don't get cropped, but is displayed as same size as before with the parts that should be cropped as transparent?

I don't understand your statement above. What does works and what does not work? What happens when it does not work?

This is the Image I get from the script above:

and the original is:

Try the result image in mozilla and in Explorer. In a cellular phone i get the same result as Mozilla.

Nothing has happened on this question in more than 6 weeks. It's time for cleanup!

My recommendation, which I will post in the Cleanup topic area, is to
PAQ, refund points (a little progress, but ultimately unanswered).

PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT THIS COMMENT AS AN ANSWER!
