[Documentation] Many more RAW formats require stream identification than documented

Post by michelemauro » 2017-07-24T01:47:36-07:00

Hi everyone,
we have an image broker that processes images into renditions for various uses. To keep it immutable, we use streaming a lot; however, we ran in some trouble with some RAW formats.
The Formats page https://www.imagemagick.org/script/formats.php states that for DNG, PEF and CR2 formats, a file "Requires an explicit image format otherwise the image is interpreted as a TIFF image".
However, in our experience, this is necessary (when using streaming) also for DCR and NEF formats.

Can this be considered a documentation bug? what's the right channel to ask for the clarification of that page?

Huge thanks to all the developer for the great work, and thanks in advance to any who can help.

Michele Mauro
