possible bug saving transparent images IM 6.9.1.9 Q16 Mac OSX

Post by fmw42 »

There seems to be an issue with the following command saving the transparent image. The histogram before the write to output is fine, but after saving the image (whether png or tif), the base image has changed from 170 to about 220.


It was fine in 6.9.1.4 and started and continues on from 6.9.1.5 It also fails 6.9.1.2 and 6.9.1.3 versions, but is fine before that.

Note: #AAAAAAB8 should be rgba(170,170,170,0.72) or rgba(170,170,170,184) apart from antialising the edges.

Code: Select all

convert -background transparent -fill '#AAAAAAB8' -font Arial \
-pointsize 50 -depth 8 label:'Test Stamp' -resize 1024x768 \
-format "%c" -write histogram:info: test6.png

6.9.1-9 Q16 on Windows:

Code: Select all

convert -background transparent -resize 1024x768 -depth 8 -fill "rgba(170,170,170,184)" -font Arial -pointsize 50 label:"Test Stamp" PNG:- | identify -verbose -

3994: (174,174,174,249) #AEAEAEF9 graya(174,0.976471)
...

whereas

Code: Select all

convert -background transparent -resize 1024x768 -depth 8 -fill "#AAAAAAB8" -font Arial -pointsize 50 label:"Test Stamp" PNG:- | identify -verbose -
...
Colors: 199
Histogram:
140500: ( 0, 0, 0, 0) #00000000 graya(0,0)
1: (220,220,220,197) #DCDCDCC5 graya(220,0.772549)
5: (221,221,221,196) #DDDDDDC4 graya(221,0.768627)
10: (222,222,222,195) #DEDEDEC3 graya(222,0.764706)
11: (223,223,223,194) #DFDFDFC2 graya(223,0.760784)

34: (226,226,226,192) #E2E2E2C0 graya(226,0.752941)
253: (227,227,227,191) #E3E3E3BF graya(227,0.74902)
...

At least, it seems there is a parse problem.

[EDIT]
Checked after this bug is fixed in 6.9.1-10, I recognized rgba(170,170,170,184) is treated as if it were rgba(170,170,170,1.0),
So when we need to use rgba(R,G,B,A) syntax, A must be between 0 and 1, in this case rgba(170,170,170,0.72) produces the same result with #AAAAAAB8.

Try this command:
  • convert -background transparent -fill '#AAAAAAB8' -font Arial -pointsize 50 -depth 8 label:'Test Stamp' -resize 1024x768 \
    -format "%c" -write histogram:info: png32:test6.png

The command works.

But why should a conversion to gray Luma (not luminance) change the gray values. Do you mean linear luminance with gamma=1 or nonlinear luma with gamma=0.4545. If you convert by the rec709luma formula to gray without modifying the gamma, the gray value will not be changed so long as the weights add to unity. What am I not understanding?
