Searched the forum and docs but couldn't find the answer.

Does ocPortal support the inline display of PSD or PDF images? It appears not since I get the "A file, xxxxxx.com: The Leading XXX Site on the Net is either corrupt or an unrecognised image file type" error but I wanted to make sure.

Thanks for any help.

No, web browsers don't really support these like they do png's etc.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I kind of figured that to be the case with PSDs but I was not sure about PDFs. At any rate, I just wanted a clarification.

Thanks, Chris.

That stars have to align to get PSDs/PDFs to work, with PDFs no doubt being the easier of the two.

First your users would have to have browser plugins capable of displaying those formats.

Then you probably need to configure the server/ocPortal to serve the right mime type it in the right situation. (With data being sent in the right mime type the plugins could potentially be able to automatically pick them up and display them)

And for good measure you may potentially even need object/embed codes in your HTML to get the plugins to recognise them.

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S / Galaxy S II ? If so, why not check out my ScreenFree FM Radio .

I've just changed the caption to specifically request that people submit the preferred TIF of PNG files or uncompressed JPGs. PDF/PSDs are not allowed as image upload types.

Yeah, it would be a real crapshoot as to whether the viewer would see the actual image using PSDor PDF.
