Are TIF images supported by SDL_image?

When a fellow developer tried to load some TIF images using SDL_image he
gets an “Unsupported image format” error. I was under the impression
that SDL_image did support TIFs. Is this not the case?

Thanks,

It does support TIFs if you have the required libraries installed when
you build the SDL_image library. In Windows you need libtiff.dll and
libtiff.lib, I can’t remember the Linux filenames.

So does this mean that you need to compile SDL_image to support tiffs or
does it support tiffs out of the box/archive?

I don’t think this is possible as I receive the digest version of this
mailing list and I tend to reply to the digest. So unless there is a
flag I can set in Netscape I am sorry about the inconvenience this causes.

Thanks for pointing this out, I will pass on the information.
