It should be possible to get a list of supported formats, preferably with mime type and default extension.
(supported metadata can be fetched by ImageFactory::checkMode but I did not find any way to get
the type range or anything similar)

Hi Vladimir,

What do you mean by "type range"?



Updated by Vladimir Nadvornik almost 13 years ago

range for the "type" parameter when I want to call ImageFactory::checkMode for all formats in a loop


Updated by Andreas Huggel almost 13 years ago

Ugly workaround: Call ImageFactory::checkMode with type values from 1 and incremented by 1 until it throws an Exiv2::Error (13). If PNG support is disabled, skip type 6.

I'm going to mark this for review. Andreas has provide a workaround.

I'm going to link this to #1061 which is an overhaul of the Man pages.
