Frees developers from the limitations of .NET to easily create and manipulate images the way they have always wanted to.

If you spend time developing web and desktop applications, then you already know how useful .NET is. But chances are you have also spent your time wishing that there was more versatile image processing utility available in a .NET platform. Aurigma’s developers have the answer you have been looking for, and it is available today in Graphics Mill: .NET image processing SDK.

Image processing with the standard .NET system is possible, but it is a utilitarian, “one size fits all” experience. When you need to perform specialized operations, or need your application to regularly handle really large numbers of images; when quality and throughput are paramount, your best option is to use a powerful .net image processing SDK. And Graphics Mill fits that profile hands down. Just look at some of the advanced operations you can complete with Graphics Mill’s .NET image processing SDK:

Batch Processing

With this function you can load whole folders of JPEG files, complete with associated thumbnails. Manipulation of the images (rotating, cropping, etc.) or their conversion to TIFF format is quickly and simply accomplished with Aurigma’s .NET image processing SDK.

Manipulation of Image Effects

With .NET image processing SDK, you can easily configure an image’s colors and tone, from basic brightness and contrast settings to more advanced levels and curves. Autofix is also available. Developers can experiment with sepia tones, color transformations, or other image effects. Images can be desaturated with ease.

EXIF File Analysis

.NET image processing SDK allows you to quickly retrieve geo data for social media or other applications. File continuity can be ensured by reading the date a photo was created. Developers could use this .NET image processing SDK feature for all sorts of things.

Say a developer wanted help advertisers reach targeted prospective clients. An app could be written that would analyze a group of photos on a site and determine where a user travelled in a given timeframe. By finding out the kind of places someone goes to, people that visited a certain ski resort or amusement park could be offered discounts for future visits.

Image Analysis

.NET image processing SDK provides for many analytical parameters that can be utilized. Retrieval of brightness settings is one, which after review can be used to ensure images aren’t too light or too dark. Color elements can be studied, exposures identified, all the relevant settings of the camera that took the image are there for examination. Prospective photographers will be able to determine the settings that the original camera was using when an image was generated. You can tell what the F-stop was, what the aperture settings were, which lens was used to get just the right lighting effect. This allows for the recreation of the effects that exist in the original image.

Image creation

Draw vector elements, add text to the image, or combine several images into one, seamlessly and simply. .NET image processing SDK is a veritable toolbox full of all the virtual apparatus your users need, whether generating images or artistic pictures.

Pre-print processing

.NET image processing SDK provides for simple conversion of images from RGB to CMYK using ICC profiles. This ensures the original’s true colors are preserved in the resulting files. The resulting images can be saved as ready-to-print hi-res PDF or TIFF files.

VDP Implementation

Variable Data Printing (VDP) in .NET image processing SDK allows you to load PSD (Photoshop) files one layer at a time. You can use it to extract the font settings in the text layer. This makes .NET image processing SDK a great tool for organizing templates. After the files have been overlaid, generated, and organized, you can populate variable data fields and generate a hi-res file that is ready to print.

Algorithm personalization

.NET image processing SDK allows your users to get to the source pixels for an image and perform any custom manipulation with the many available tools that you want to do. Your users are in complete control of the process and the output!

.NET image processing SDK is solid and dependable, and can be utilized by many simultaneous users in a server environment. All in all, .NET developers have never had so much functionality at their fingertips.
