Imagero is a Java imaging library. Supported file types include BMP, GIF, TIFF, PNG, JNG, MNG, JPEG (including CMYK and 12-bit grey), PSD, PBM, PGM, PPM, TGA, EPS, EPSI, EPSF, AI, PDF, MRW, CRW, NEF, DCR, and DNG. Imagero can read thumbnails and can read and write metadata (IPTC, EXIF, XMP, Wang Annotations, Image Resource Blocks, Image File Directrories, JPEG Markers). Accurate color conversion is done with ICC profiles. TIFF tools allow you to split and merge TIFF images, add and remove IFDs. Lossless JPEG to TIFF and TIFF to JPEG conversion can be done. Lossless JPEG operations are supported.


This release rewrites most parts of the library to use new Java features (like generics and enums), can easily create/modify XMP metadata with XMPCollection, gets XMP data as TreeModel, fixes a few bugs in the PDF parser, adds support for Shading Patterns, increases PDF rendering speed, and adds support for embedded fonts (TrueType and Type1).
