Overview

ImageGlue is a toolkit that allows you to create and modify still images. It can be used in .NET desktop applications or in .NET server pages.

Read and write a host of media formats including: BMP, PNG, TIFF, Fax TIFF, JPEG / JFIF, GIF, Photoshop (PSD), QuickDraw PICT, Targa, QuickTime Image (QTIF), Silicon Graphics (SGI), MacPaint, FlashPix (FPX), Macromedia Flash™ 4 (SWF), Movie (MOV), QTVR, Cubic VR, AVI (Microsoft Audio Video Interleaved), XML / SMIL.

Draw image files or data, text, lines, shapes - unfilled, filled or textured. Perform arbitrary transforms - rotation, skews, scaling - on any of these objects.

ImageGlue is much like System.Drawing or WPF but rather more sophisticated.

The crucial thing is not so much that it supports so many more image file formats - though it does - but that it supports them so much better.

Do you really care about the Targa file format? Probably not. However you probably do care about TIFF and ImageGlue supports TIFF - and many other formats - so much better than System.Drawing.

Working in multiple color spaces ImageGlue allows unfettered access and control over graphics. Like System.Drawing and WPF, ImageGlue works in RGB. But it also works in CMYK, grayscale, Lab, device and spot colors. It supports sophisticted graphical formats like PSD, PDF, PostScript and EPS.
