Hello

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction with a project Im involved with.

This project is about image (Scanned documents) and keeping them in a collection.

So for instance
The application can scan multiple documents and present them in a list view and picture box

However the way I need to store them is quite a task.

Lets say the batch (Group of documents) as scanned at 20150303133230 time stamp and lets say there are 5 documents
I need to store the images as a multi layered file but to call the images back
I would need a reference to the image in the layer stack.

20150303133230-1
20150303133230-2
20150303133230-3
20150303133230-4
20150303133230-5

So I guess if you imagine you have 5 playing cards, and you want to call up any card by its reference in the pile

So within the listview the above reference would be triggered and pull back the image from the multi layered image file.

Can someone please point me down the right path?
1. of stacking the images
2. How to reference them in the stack

I hope I have explained myself clearly

Why, why "multilayered file"?

1 solution

You can use "multipage" TIFF: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tagged_Image_File_Format#Multiple_subfiles[^].

Please see, for example, this CodeProject article: Save images into a multi-page TIFF file or add images to an existing TIFF file[^].

Only I am not sure you really need all that.
