Tomas,

Thanks for your response. I probably shall explain the problem in greater detail.

I have some TIFF images that I am creating my test collection from. I set the ImagePlug to:
-thumbnailtype jpg
-screenviewtype jpg
-converttotype jpg

The result is jpeg thumbnails, which is fine, but they link to larger images that are tiffs, not jpegs as I would like them to be. I would like Greenstone to archive the original tiffs but also create jpeg derivatives for on-line viewing.

Thanks
Andrew

Hello Andrew,

I hope I understood your question right, when you process TIFF files, there is an option in ImagePlug THUMBNAILTYPE AND THUMBNAIL SIZE, switch it on and set file format to JPEG. These thumbnails will be automatically shown in your collection.

Or just use IrfanView, before putting the files to Greenstone http://www.irfanview.com/

Sincerely,

Tomáš Fiala
