Update from 6.5.8 to 6.8.6-7: PSD PingImage reads full data

In 6.5.8, executing PingImage for a large 100MB PSD file returned immediately with no recognizable delay. In 6.8.6-7, PingImage takes around 30 seconds to complete. I assume that all PSD files are affected because 6.8.6-7 does not evaluate the ping flag in ImageInfo anymore, so I did not provide a sample for reproduction. In 6.5.8, ping was evaluated and handled using the following code:

Code: Select all

   layer_info=(LayerInfo *) NULL;
What was the reason for removing that fragment? Without it, PingImage is practically useless in terms of execution time. Before that, it worked as expected without any noticable delay.

Thanks für looking into it,
