TifIMG 16/32 features
TifIMG 16 and 32 bit Delphi components provide
for reading of numerous image formats such as TIFF, BMP, PCX,
DCX, JPEG, TGA, WMF, WPG and the new PNG graphics format.
It is principally designed for developers using TIFF files, and
it encapsulates most of the work in building image viewer, conversion
and filing systems. The component comes with a complete demo illustrating
flip, rotate, zoom and pan, scaling, brightness and contrast,
dithering, text annotation, cropping. Automatic color reduction
is provided for JPEG images, allowing viewing of 24 bit color
on a 256 color system. pan and floating magnifying glass functions
allow great flexibility along with ease of use.
Sample programs are available illustrating batch
conversion from one format to another, creation of thumbnails,
reading and storing TIFF files in a paradox BLOB, etc.
New features in version
- freeform zoom by rubberband box
- brightness and contrast control
- grayscale/halftone from color images
- skew image by x Pixels X-axis or Y-axis
- rotate image by one degree increments
- capture other windows on the desktop into
TifIMG (good for documentation and help files)
See Kent's article on
TIFF Images for a description of what the image format is
and does, and issues associated with using it, such as resolution,
compression scheme, and contrast.
Multiple versions available
Versions for Delphi 2-7 and codegear Delphi2005-Delphi2007
Read many formats automatically
TifIMG will not only load the supported image based on its extension;
for TIFF images you may specify an alternate extension (such as
".001" or ".PIM") and TifIMG will treat that
as a TIFF file as well. TifIMG automatically decodes the image
using whatever compression format the TIFF header specifies, including
G4, G32D, G31D, packbits, uncompressed, etc.
Many image manipulation
These include rotation, scaling, panning, zooming, text annotation,
cropping, saving in other formats, brightness and contrast control,
color reduction, skewing, rotating by degree increments, and more.
In addition to the extensive demo program, many other source code
examples are available to illustrate storage of images in database
BLOBs, batch conversion programs, image comparison programs, barcode
reading, and more.
TifIMG is royalty free.
Support for odd images
An add-on to TifIMG is CCITT, an extension which will allow you
to read raw CCITT compression formats without a TIFF header, if
you know the image dimensions and compression type. This allows
the reading of many proprietary fax and document imaging formats
with a little experimentation. Some knowledge of TIFF and image
compression concepts is helpful in using this component. Readers
for WinFax and BITFAX images are supplied with the CCITT add-in.
