TiffFramePathResources Property
Gets or sets the path resources.

Namespace: Aspose.Imaging.FileFormats.Tiff
Assembly: Aspose.Imaging (in Aspose.Imaging.dll) Version: 21.05
Syntax
public List<PathResource> PathResources { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: ListPathResource
The path resources.
Examples
Transfer Clipping Paths during export from TIFF to PSD image.
[C#]

using (var image = Image.Load("Sample.tif"))
{
    image.Save("SampleWithPaths.psd", new PsdOptions());
}
Examples
The following example shows how to retrieve paths from TIFF image and display their names in the console.
[C#]

using (var image = (TiffImage)Image.Load("Sample.tif"))
{
    foreach (var path in image.ActiveFrame.PathResources)
    {
        Console.WriteLine(path.Name);
    }
}
Examples
The following example shows how to modify already existing Clipping Paths. For instance, you can keep only one Clipping Path in the image.
[C#]

using (var image = (TiffImage)Image.Load("Sample.tif"))
{
    var paths = image.ActiveFrame.PathResources;
    image.ActiveFrame.PathResources = paths.Take(1).ToList();
    image.Save();
}
Examples
The following example shows how to create Clipping Path in TIFF image. In order to do that you need to create an instance of PathResource class. The following code demonstrates the way how you can create an empty path in TIFF image.
[C#]

var options = new TiffOptions(TiffExpectedFormat.Default);
var frame = new TiffFrame(options, 800, 600);

using (var image = new TiffImage(frame))
{
    image.ActiveFrame.PathResources = new List<PathResource>
    {
        new PathResource
        {
            BlockId = 2000,
            Name = "My Clipping Path",
            Records = new List<VectorPathRecord>()
        }
    };

    image.Save("ImageWithEmptyPath.tiff");
}
Examples
Create Clipping Path manually.
[C#]

    using (var image = (TiffImage)Image.Load("Sample.tif"))

        image.ActiveFrame.PathResources = new List<PathResource> { new PathResource
