Demonstrates various methods how to use Graphics Mill to load and save images. Both simple syntax to load a single image and more advanced techniques (to load multi-image files) are presented.
Loads and saves JPEG images.
Demonstrates how to apply lossless operations (rotate, flip, crop, update region and metadata) on JPEG files, without decoding/encoding JPEG data (therefore, avoiding image quality degradation).
Loads and saves TIFF images (both single and multiple pages).
Reads and writes extra channel to a TIFF image (such as spot colors or additional alpha channels).
Loads and saves PNG images. Converts a bitmap to a palette-based image optimized for web.
Loads and saves BMP images.
Loads and saves GIF images. Converts a bitmap to a palette-based image optimized for web.
Creates an animated GIF. Extracts all frames of animated GIF and resizes GIF without loosing the animation.
Demonstrates how to convert an image to WebP format (both simple and animated).
Reads RAW image format.
Extracts TIFF preview from EPS file.
Saves an image and graphics as PDF and EPS file (as bitmap and as vector).
Loads and saves TARGA images.
Demonstrates how to reduce 24-bit colors to 8-bit using NeuQuant algorithm and save the result to PNG. Comparing to classic color quantization algorithms, NeuQuant provides much better quality and preserves alpha channel, scarifying the performance.
