FreeImage is an Open Source library project for developers who would like to support popular graphics image formats in their software. The libraries are available in both binary and source distributions. FreeImage supports BMP, CUT, ICO, IFF, JBIG, JNG, JPEG, JFIF, KOALA, LBM, PCD, PBM, PGM, PNG, PPM, PSD, RAS, TARGA, TIFF, and WBMP.
GAIA Image Transcoder (GIT) is a library that operates image transcoding, with a special focus on mobile applications. It comes in two parts: a transformation and transcoding library that performs image adaptation to mobile device using information retrieved from WURFL files, and a very simple JSP tag library that enables library utilization in a J2EE environment. The transcoding library works as a transformation pipeline. The pipeline is composed of a set of filters. A filter can operate directly on the image body, or indirectly on the associated meta-information. The GIT architecture supports the management cycle of such pipes, while GIT tag libraries simplifies their definition.
The Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) is a unifying C/C++ API for accessing raster geospatial data, and currently includes formats like GeoTIFF, Erdas Imagine, Arc/Info Binary, CEOS, DTED, GXF, and SDTS. It is intended to provide efficient access, suitable for use in viewer applications, and also attempts to preserve coordinate systems and metadata. Python, C, and C++ interfaces are available.
GL2PS is a C library providing high quality vector output for any OpenGL application. It uses sorting algorithms capable of handling intersecting and stretched polygons, as well as non manifold objects. It provides advanced smooth shading and text rendering, culling of invisible primitives, mixed vector/bitmap output, and much more. It can currently create PostScript (PS), Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), Portable Document Format (PDF), and Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) files, as well as LaTeX files for the text fragments.
Gallery Mage is a client side photo gallery management system designed to work with online gallery display scripts such as SPGM. Using Gallery Mage, one can select, caption, rotate, crop, resize, and upload photos taken with a digital camera to an online photo gallery. The rotate, crop, and resize parameters are stored as text data with the images, and the operations are only performed on a copy of the photo while exporting, thus preserving the original picture files. Gallery Mage provides abstraction from the online display software.
Garbure is a collection of dedicated distributions. Each distribution provides carefully selected tools for a specific target domain, and is completed with examples and documentation. The set of distributions forms an entity, but each distribution works also on its own. All elements are arranged in the same way for each distribution.
