Partial PNG Image data pre-scan.

Recommended Posts

Kinda wondering about potential speedups in relation to reading partial PNG image data.

The intended target here is to do a 'as short/fast as possible' initial partial-image data scan.

The thing here is that in the below function. GDIPlus will off course read and process the whole PNG image file. (with the PNG decoding part probably taking the biggest time slice.)

Running it on ~1050 small PNG files take about 5 and 6 seconds. (not that bad for a full scan, But pointless to use it for a partial image pre-scan.)

Where a crc scan on the whole image data takes ~6 second, And a partial crc scan, on the first image line, takes ~5 seconds. (the time difference between the two cases is probebly mainly because of the different amount of data that the crc function gets to process.

So I'm kinda wondering what would be potential solutions for a significant faster image data pre-scan with AutoIt.

If there is any real/practical solution that is. The only one that comes to my mind at the moment is that this probably is only achievable with some dedicated PNG related Assembly code. (which is not going to happen in my case.)

Any thoughts on the matter? ...

(Probably should stick to Python for this. But I like to try it in both Python and AutoIt.)
