Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-2473) PCX and DCX image support
Date Tue, 02 Oct 2018 19:35:00 GMT

Luis Filipe Nassif commented on TIKA-2473:

Hi [~mcaruanagalizia],

I think jbig2 is handled internally in pdfbox and no image conversion is done by Tika. If we
want to do that, I think the conversion could be called from TesseractOCRParser.

>                 Key: TIKA-2473
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-2473
>             Project: Tika
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: parser
>    Affects Versions: 1.16
>            Reporter: Matthew Caruana Galizia
>            Priority: Major
> It's straightforward in theory to implement support for PCX and DCX. There's support
for it in Commons Imaging as well as in ImageIO via TwelveMonkeys.
> In practise, however, I'm not really sure how implement support. We obviously want to
OCR the images, but Tesseract has no support for the format. So where do we do the conversion
to a BufferedImage? I tried to look for what is done to handle JBIG2 files but I can't find
that anywhere.
