ImageGlue is a popular toolkit for dynamic image generation. With ImageGlue you can:
ImageGlue is a fantastic component! Anyone that needs server side graphics manipulation need not look any further!
ImageGlue .NET is a .NET native product encapsulated in an easy-to-deploy set of DLLs. You'll find our documentation clear and extensive, with example code in C# and VB.NET for all major functions, and an example web project which you may freely adapt.
Read and write core image types like BMP, PNG, TIFF, JPEG/JFIF, GIF, Photoshop, QuickDraw PICT, Targa, PDF, EPS, Macromedia Flash™ 5, QuickTime Image, Silicon Graphics, MacPaint, FlashPix and JPEG2000. Handle extremely large TIFF files with our Very Large TIFF Support™. Read images from movie types like AVI and MOV. Plus support for over 80 other graphics file formats.
Draw image files or data, text (in columns or along paths), lines, shapes (unfilled, filled or textured). All available anti-aliased. Perform arbitrary transforms (e.g. rotation, skews, scaling) on any of these objects. Make use of hardware acceleration if available.
Use transparencies to blend or matte images together. Insert alpha channels. Select portions of images for specific operations. Manipulate image color tables using a multitude of different palette and color reduction methods.
ImageGlue .NET Professional edition now incorporates the same PostScript rendering engine as used by ABCpdf, our PDF component, which has proven to be fast, robust and accurate. PostScript support enables you to import and export PS, EPS, and PDF files in their native color spaces. PostScript is a programming language with practically unlimited power so all the power of PostScript from simple text drawing to complex warping and special effects are yours for the taking.
Use IGSettings to manage system-wide configuration and collect operational, error and optimization information.
Read and write images to databases as BLOBs. Use standard html file uploads to allow clients to send you image files for processing. Extract IPTC and EXIF image metadata like captions and keywords for insertion into databases. ImageGlue meshes perfectly with the print world...
But you don't need to take our word for it. Here's some examples of what our clients have to say…
I've become completely dependent upon this product for ALL of my server-side image processing needs. There's absolutely NOTHING that this little component can't do. In fact, there's so much capability built into the product that I have only used as much as 20% of it. I just wanted to say "Thanks" for making a great product, and for making me look like some kind of genius to my peers and clients.
Both ImageGlue and ABCpdf are fantastic products. Implementing them is straightforward and the manuals are clear with excellent examples. They are the most comprehensive products we have found for handling images and PDF files within .NET and the support from WebSupergoo is both timely and terrific. We would highly recommend either of these products to anyone working with images or pdf files in .NET.
There can be better tools but can I imagine them?
This component rocks, keep up the good work!
With all this power you might expect ImageGlue to be complicated to use. But no! It's specifically designed to be simple. Show me how simple dynamic image generation can be…
