Fix: Malformed EXIF info
Certain malformed/unexpected EXIF info could cause an error when displaying the EXIF tab on the image info window.
Enhancement: Additional bitmap formats supported
Certain bitmap formats (32bpp bitfields) would not paste into dbPix, requiring first pasting then re-copying using another application.
Enhancement: No error on missing file
Previously an error was displayed if an application tried to load or display a file which did not exist, requiring that the application first check the existince of a file to avoid this error.
18.104.22.168 - Released 22nd May 2005
Fix: Form Print Scaling
Images would be incorrectly scaled when printing forms (Reports, recommended for printing, were unaffected).
Fix: Tab control focus problem
When dbPix was used on a tab control other controls could become 'locked' or read-only.
Fix: Images skipped when batch-loading
Under certain conditions (a combination of image size and system performance) some images could be skipped when batch-loading multiple images.
Fix: Problem saving small images with large EXIF data
A problem occurred when saving images where the EXIF data became large relative to the image size, eg when creating small thumbnails and including an EXIF thumbnail. Note that in general it is recommended to strip EXIF data from thumbnails.
Enhancement: Improved grayscale handling
In some cases grayscale JPEG images were converted to color, increasing their size. Grayscale is now preserved in more cases.
Sample Fix: 'AddNew' problem in Reports (external files)
In Access 2003 a 'read-only' error might occur in the External Files report sample. The code is now updated to resolve this.

Fix: Problem with some TWAIN drivers
Some TWAIN drivers would cause dbPix to always report a TWAIN Error when trying to acquire a picture. This is now fixed. Note, however, that many cameras require that the manufacturer's UI is displayed in order to select a picture; if you encounter a TWAIN Error when trying to acquire without showing the manufacturer's UI then try acquiring with the UI.
