Trying to write current mapcanvas as an image of type GIF (using menu 'File/Save as Image') will write a foo.gifw world-file, but not the corresponding foo.gif.

Tested on trunkversion on both Windows (osgeo4w dev build) and on Ubuntu 10.04 (r13741).

I also tried to use the MapCanvas.saveAsImage-python to write a gif-file, and that also resulted in only the worldfile.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Looks like Qt does only support reading GIFs, but not writing GIFs, but QGIS assumed that it could also write what it reads. Fixed in 6878a84d (SVN r13747).
