Drupal and TIFFs
I’ve been working on a prototype using Drupal for digital library content but one major issue I’m encountering is how Drupal deals with TIFFs. Drupal documentation is at best spotty and it is difficult sometimes to determined if modules (Image or ImageField) support TIFFs. What I’d like to be able to do is use FileField (since ImageField upon testing doesn’t support TIFFs) to add TIFFs and then convert these into JPEGs. After about 2 days of digging, I haven’t found an answer. ImageCache would be perfect, except it doesn’t deal with TIFFs. It seems like ImageMagick is capable of changing TIFFs into JPEGs but this hasn’t been integrated into Drupal as far as I can tell.
So I’ve reached a stalemate at this point. Does anyone out there have experience with making Drupal play nice with TIFFs?
