validate

Image validation utility. This command line utility verifies image files to make sure they are valid and can be read without difficulty by Image Serving.
All non-PTIFF image files must pass validate before the file is made available to Image Serving as a source image. PTIFF images should be validated after potentially unreliable copy operations.

Usage

validate * fileType * [ * options *] [ * sourceFile * [ … ]]
fileType
-jpeg | -ptif | -any
Source file type; at least one must be specified (-any allows the same image file types supported by IC).
options
Other command options (see below).
sourceFile
Image file. None or more, separated by spaces.

Returns

0 if successful. If an error occurs, a non-zero value is returned and error details are sent to stderr .

Options

-fileList listFile
Specifies a separate text file containing the list of image files. One record per file. If -fileList is included, sourceFile must not be specified.
-readPixels
Enables verification of the entire image file. By default, only the image header is validated.
-validatecolorprofile
Verifies the embedded color profile for validity. By default, the profile body is not checked.
-reject16BitPerComponent
Rejects images with 16 bits per image component. Always specified by the Image Server when it validates remote source images.
-verbose
Prints more information if the image is invalid.
-silent
Disables stdout / stderr output. Only a status is returned.
-stopOnError
Terminates processing when a file validation failure occurs, even if additional files are yet to be validated. By default, processing continues when a validation error occurs
-version
Returns version info for this utility. Specify with no other options.
