Instance Method


Tests whether the receiver can be compressed by the specified compression scheme.


func canBeCompressed(using compression: NSBitmapImageRep.TIFFCompression) -> Bool



A TIFF compression type. For more information, see the constants in NSBitmapImageRep.TIFFCompression.

Return Value

true if the receiver's data matches compression with this type, false if the data doesn’t match compression or if compression is unsupported..


Legal values for compression can be found in NSBitmapImageRep.h and are described in TIFF Compression in NSBitmapImageReps. This method returns true if the receiver’s data matches compression; for example, if compression is NSTIFFCompressionCCITTFAX3, then the data must be 1 bit per sample and 1 sample per pixel.
