Issues brainstorm
  • A sample page showing 'shifted crop' of artefacts in the image that should not be there. Need to be able to identify which files in a set have been affected by this problem.
  • Screen shot showing a TIFF and the corresponding JPEG2000 derived from it side by side, the JPEG2000 image appears to have been truncated and looks 'fuzzy' in parts to the naked eye. Need to be able to identify which files have been affected by this problem.
