I executed the code below from:



The generated files are ok except for BMP and TIF are zero bytes each.

What could be the problem? I am using JDK 1.6.0

TIF is quite logical, that's not supported by default (check ImageIO.getWriterFormatNames()). BMP is though, at least on my machine.

I've even tried the following: Yet somehow, even though they are supported, BMP and WBMP give empty files. Odd indeed.

Interesting. I'm getting zero-length BMP/WBMP in Java 5 on OS X as well. I was in the past successful in generating BMPs using ImageIO, though.

Info on how to TIFF-enable ImageIO

See Converting Images to BMP/WMBP for some subtleties.
