Dealing with GIF's ?
Posted Wednesday, January 7, 2009 at {ts '2018-04-23 11:48:00'}

So we are using imageCFC to crop images to a certain size and rename. Our problem is our source is a gif and we need to create a gif.

We get the error: Java is unable to write gif files. Valid formats include: jpeg,JPG,png,jpg,PNG,JPEG

How are people getting around this?

I'm not much of a server guy... do we need to install a java gif encoder or something?

Windows Server 2003
ColdFusion MX 7.02
imageCFC 2.17

NOTE: We'd use JPG but because of a bug in CFDocument saving to PDF with a lot of jpg images, we've had to resort to using gifs.
