Bug Description

Binary package hint: eog

TIFFs generated as multilayer composites with Hugin are not displayed properly in eog; only the top layer is displayed, cropped to its dimensions.

To reproduce: Load the attached file in eog.

eog only displays the top layer, cropped to its dimensions--the image should be around 500 pixels wide, but it displays as only the width of a single layer. I do not know if multipage TIFFs are stored as multiple layers; if they are, it would be inappropriate to display them as one big image. However, if the layers are all painted on the same canvas, as these are, they should be displayed as one large image.

I am running eog 2.14.1-0ubuntu2 on Ubuntu Dapper.

A multilayer TIFF, as generated by Hugin. ImageMagick recognizes it as such:

$ identify small-test.tif
small-test.tif[1] TIFF 107x165 DirectClass 390kb
small-test.tif[2] TIFF 114x165 DirectClass 390kb
small-test.tif[3] TIFF 104x165 DirectClass 390kb
small-test.tif[4] TIFF 114x165 DirectClass 390kb
small-test.tif[5] TIFF 114x165 DirectClass 390kb
small-test.tif[6] TIFF 114x155 DirectClass 390kb
small-test.tif[7] TIFF 83x165 DirectClass 390kb

It loads with the layers properly displayed and offset in Gimp

The upstream bug was marked duplicate; change the bug watch to point to the original. ("EOG does not show multiple-paged TIF images")

This is still happening with 2.16.1-0ubuntu1

As a work around, Evince 0.6.1 shows it properly.

I cannot attach my test case because it contains confidential information, but the tiff contains 18 pages, shown correctly in Gimp and Evince.

A multi-page tiff is not shown by eog 2.18.1: only the first page is shown. Attached is the offending tiff.

Just a note: Evince (also standard with Ubuntu 7.04) opens multi-page TIFFs correctly.

I have the same situation using Xubuntu 8.04 and evince - the program opens only the first page of any multipage tiff file... Any idea to solve this? Please help!

Yes it's still an issue and such comments doesn't help the bug to be fixed instead a patch should be submitted.
