Hi. I'm trying to display a .tif image file on my web page.
The image is on another physical drive on the server and because .tif
images don't display very well i decided to use Rmagick...
I would like to load the image from the server; convert it to a .png;
display it on the web page.
If possible i don't want to create a physical .png file on the server.
The closest i've got is:
read the file in,
convert it to .png and write it to the server (which as i mentioned i
dont want to do),
and use <%= image_tag("file:///c:/temp/photo3.png") %> in the view.
It works, but just seems very clunky. Any ideas welcome...
