Re: One Use Only Files

Just throwing ideas around. What I time stamped and made a duplicate of the file when it was first loaded ,and only allowed that time stamped copy to be used till another file was loaded? Can anyone find fault in that method? Hoe would I keep track in the software not to load that file ever again th...

Re: One Use Only Files

1 time only use = they load it into the stack and use it as much as they like until they load in another image then the old one would be replaced and deleted. But if they had made a copy of the old file they could easily reload it again and again and again, share it etc. I'm probably asking the impo...

One Use Only Files

Hi again.
Thought I should start a new thread on this as the other image thread was getting quite large.
Can anyone suggest a way to limit a file, (Image), to 1 time only use in a stack? Even if they
user has made a copy of it?

Re: Images in Livecode

Thank you so much for the examples richmond62. They are brilliant. I'm not sure about the implementation though seeing that the area guide is also used as a slight watermark you don't want people using a slider to make it invisible but if there is a background that loads in of similar tones it will ...

Re: Images in Livecode

I took a brief look and it seemed to process the bitmap effect a lot faster than I have experienced. I'll take another look in the morning.
Don't worry...I always make a fool of myself :) It makes you more human ;)

Re: Images in Livecode

richmond62. Thanks you so much. Maybe this is the reason I am having so much trouble with learning LC. I search and search for solutions and get multiple answers which I experiment with and then I post a thread and find out there is a much easier way to do things? It does make things difficult from ...

Re: Images in Livecode

Hi again :) I have been searching the forum for a quick way of processing an image so that it's color slightly changes. It's a transparent .png overlay of guidelines for measurements that sits over the main image area. The lines are a very light blue color but I just realized that if a design is loa...

Re: Images in Livecode

[-hh]
That stack is fantastic! Can I ask where the processing is done?
Just by naming it as "JPNG" does the file extension refer to a library to process/compress the PNG data?
(Complete beginner questions please forgive).

Re: Images in Livecode

Hi Jacque. Yes I want to be able to handle the alpha channel separately to the bitmap. This format serves two purposes as it gives my artwork some form of protection from the normal person as well as allow me to swap alpha channels and transfer them between designs, turn them off etc. guess you coul...
