We tried to make LogicalDOC as intuitive as possible, but an advice is always welcome.

Preview of image files

Wed Dec 06, 2017 9:13 am

Hi all

I am using the community edition and I checked the preview option on documents.
I only managed to see PDF and TIFF files, but not image file e.g. JPEG.
Is it possible some how?
Can I extend the viewer in some way?

Thanks
Shahar

Hi ShaharEldad,
you should install also ImageMagick and configure it
on Linux https://docs.logicaldoc.com/en/installa ... ldoc-linux

But there are some limits in the preview and conversion system of LogicalDOC Community, I don't remember exactly, but some image types might not be covered.

Of course you can work on this, LogicalDOC Community is open source, so you can change the code or add new plugins to the system https://sourceforge.net/projects/logicaldoc/

Hi

I found here where to configure the ImageMagick
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=9157&p=14416&hilit= ... ick#p14416
So I configured it like this:
C:\Program Files\ImageMagick-7.0.7-Q8\convert.exe
This is the version ImageMagick I use 7.0.7 Q8.
I also logged out, restarted the service and logged back in, but I am still unable to preview the image (I am able to click the thumbnail but I wish for the preview).
Note if this matters... I use the community edition.

Thanks
Shahar

Hi ShaharEldad,
yes, I imagined it.
LogicalDOC Community lacks of the document format converter so it is not able to make a preview of some kind of images.
I suspect this is the right explanation but to be sure you should upload a new image of the sime type and request the preview to the system.
That's because the system caches the conversion, so you should work on new fresh documents

I tried to upload a new image of type jpeg and it did not work, so I guess maybe it is the community issue.
Thank you
