Description

Currently, morpho understands "gif", "jpeg", jpg", and some other arbitrary
format names. At a minimum, we need to also allow mime type designations (e.g.,
"image/gif"). As part of this, it would be nice if the data import wizard
detected that the file being imported is an image so that it can skip
meainingless screens of information such as "attribute" lists (which are
currently shown).

History

#1 Updated by Dan Higgins over 17 years ago

Most users are unlikely to know what a 'mime-type' is. 'format' in the physical
module in the wizard should thus be a choice element with choices meaningful to
the user (and which insert mime types in the eml)

Also, I don't know of an easy way to detect image files (other than extenders).
Need to find out if the first few bytes indicate file type.

#2 Updated by Dan Higgins about 16 years ago

This bug is 'corrected' in version 1.5 where EML 2.0.0 is used and one picks
formats from a list in the DataPackage wizard.
