Did you know that there are more than 140 different image formats, sub-formats, and "flavors" available to load, view and save in your
application? The tremendous variety of image formats available to you as a
programmer is staggering.
Each image format has its own unique set of load/save/display
options, which may encompass varying types and/or degrees of compression,
a range of image information bit-depths, progressive (multi-pass) image display,
the ability to maintain multi-page or multi-channel images, animations, or
non-image data, just to name a few.
If you're looking to support a vast collection of file formats,
check out third-party components for file format support. The code is already
available to drop into your next software application.
From Gif to PTOCA - Web formats to Document formats, there
is no image that your application can't support, and best of all, it's easy!
