Type Method


Returns an autoreleased string containing the localized name for the specified compression type.


+ (NSString *)localizedNameForTIFFCompressionType:(NSTIFFCompression)compression;



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

Return Value

A localized name for compression or nil if compression is unrecognized.


When implementing a user interface for selecting TIFF compression types, use getTIFFCompressionTypes:count: to get the list of supported compression types, then use this method to get the localized names for each compression type.
