Hi there,

I've got several GIF and PNG files with TFW and PRJ information.
They can't be loaded into GlobalMapper (v10 trial) directly.

When saving the GIF and PNG to TIFF (in Photoshop etc.), they can be loaded to GM.

Can you add support for loading these files directly?

Best regards,

    You can load those files directly, you just need to make sure that the world file has the proper extension. For TIFF files, TFW is the correct extension, buf for GIF files GFW should be used and for PNG files PGW should be used. If you just rename your world file appropriately it should load right in.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
