Adobe PhotoDeluxe can't read The Panorama Factory BMP
V1.0 - V2.2.
When you use Adobe PhotoDeluxe to read a BMP file produced by The Panorama Factory it
displays the following error message:
Could not open 'filename.bmp' because the file-format module cannot parse the
PhotoDeluxe apparently can read TIFF and JPEG files produced by The Panorama
This problem arises because The Panorama Factory stores BMP files with 32 bits per
pixel but PhotoDeluxe can read BMP files only if they have 24 bits per pixel.
This problem is fixed in V2.3. If you are running an earlier version of The
Panorama Factory, you should save your image files as .tif or .jpg
files using the Save current image as command
(File menu). See also the File Save Image
As dialog box.
Fixed in V2.3.
The Panorama Factory now writes most BMP files with 24 bits per pixel.
NOTE: In V2.3 the *_warped_* files within The Panorama
Factory projects are still written with 32 bits per pixel. This is because the
application must store additional information for the warped images. So these image
files still cannot be read by Adobe PhotoDeluxe. However, all other images including
images written with the Save current
image as command (File menu) are compatible with PhotoDeluxe.
