Work with most popular image formats

Graphics Mill supports most popular image formats. Load, save or convert your images between various file formats.

Format Read Write Metadata Animated / multipage Vector graphics
EPS preview only
RAW preview only

When loading or saving an image, you can be sure that it is opened in the original pixel format and color space. It loads not only a bitmap, but also an embedded color profile or the associated metadata (EXIF, XMP, IPTC, Adobe Resources).

If an image is very large, there is no need to read or write the entire bitmap into memory. You can process an image chunk-by-chunk!

Work with vector images

Graphics Mill allows processing not only bitmaps, but also vector images. You can load PDF or SVG files, rasterize them or export them to PDF, SVG or EPS. Unlike many other PDF libraries which are designed to generate reports, Graphics Mill works better for creating print designs like business cards, stationary, etc.

Here are some examples, what you can do with it:

  • Create one or more pages.
  • Add graphics (lines, rectangles, curves and others)
  • Add images
  • Add text (including multiline and artistic)
  • Export as PDF X/4

Optimize traffic with WebP

Back in 2010, Google presented new image format, WebP, intended to reduce internet traffic. According to their research, in average it is 25-30% smaller than JPEG and PNG images with the same quality. This format is natively supported on Chrome and Android.

Graphics Mill allows both reading and writing WebP files:

  • Lossy and lossless compression
  • Configurable quality
  • Support of alpha channel (transparency)
  • Both static images and animation
