Summary of Black Ice Imaging Functionality:
From simple BMP files to more complex TIFF, JPEG and PDF file, everything is included. The Black Ice Imaging Toolkits can create standard Group 3 1d, Group 3 2d or Group 4 faxable TIFF files, create JPEG files for web sites, color faxing or photo albums, or use other formats like PDF, PCX, GIF, PNG, etc.. The TIFF and JPEG libraries developed by Black Ice Software are among the first and most extensive TIFF and JPEG file format processing and encoding/decoding libraries available on the market.
The Color Space Conversion functions implement features that change the way that colors are represented in images. Today’s devices represent colors in many different ways. Some devices, such as printers accept 1 bit monochrome images, others accept 24 bit full color images. But there is also a difference in the methods used to encode colors. Some devices, like display devices, work with the RGB color space. Others devices, such as printers, may use the CMYK colors space. The Document Imaging SDK/ActiveX has over 60 color space conversion functions, which can be grouped into three sets of functions. There is a group of function to convert a Device Independent Bitmap, a group to convert buffers and a group to convert a single pixel to any of the color spaces. Black Ice imaging tools currently support the following 9 color spaces: RGB, CMY, CMYK, HIS, HSV, L*a*b, XYZ, YIQ, YUV.
