JGrit is a program that converts images from common formats (e.g. GIF, JPEG, BMP, and PNG) to source code that can be used to render the image on either the Game Boy Advance (GBA) or the Nintendo DS (NDS) system. There are already programs that do this, but none that play nicely with both Windows and Linux. It uses the grit command line tool as a backend.
JLM image viewer is able to view standard image types as well as JLM and PLM image types. It is also able to lighten or darken an image using a "lightspace" technique. The technique is equivalent to changing the exposure time of the camera which took the image. The lightening or darkening method is generally considered superior to techniques found (such as gamma correction) which are found in image manipulation programs such as photoshop or the GIMP.
JPEG Fit is a PHP class that can be used to optimize images to fit within a given file size limit. It takes a picture in any format supported by the GD library and generates a JPEG picture with the maximum quality factor that makes the picture file size not exceed a given limit. This class is similar to the JPEG Reducer class. It uses the binary search algorithm to reach the ideal quality factor in the smallest number of iterations. The class stops searching when a given number of limit iterations is reached, or when the quality factor difference between the ideal and the found values is less than the configured precision value.
Java PictDraw is a set of Java classes to display Quickdraw images (Macintosh Pict files). Quickdraw is a meta/vector format that supports lines, circles, arcs, boxes, polygon, styled text, bitmap-based regions, and compressed bitmaps (RLE and JPEG). This package contains all the classes needed to parse a Quickdraw file, and to display into a Java AWT port. Features include the ability to make the text regions of the picture clickable.
Jhead is a command line driven utility for extracting digital camera settings from the Exif format files used by many digital cameras. It handles the various confusing ways these can be expressed, and displays them as F-stop, shutter speed, etc. It is also able to reduce the size of digital camera JPEGs without loss of information, by deleting integral thumbnails that digital cameras put into the Exif header. If you need to add Exif support to a program, this is a simple program to cut and paste from. Many projects, including PHP, have reused code from this utility.
Jitac is a Java application that converts images into ASCII art by associating blocks of the image with ASCII characters. It supports several image formats (GIF, JPEG, TIFF, and PNG) and some image manipulations that can be performed before the conversion (inversion, grayscale, resize, and gamma correction).
Jpgtn generates smaller JPEGs from larger ones. It can work in batches and create new files with names based on the names of the source files. It can dump a single thumbnail to stdout for use with pipelines or CGI programs. Thumbnail size and quality can be controlled by switches on the command line. There is no maximum "thumbnail" size, so it can be useful for creating images suitable for web publishing from very large images such as those taken with a good digicam.
KVEC is a command line tool that allows you to convert raster graphics to vector graphics. KVEC is designed for 32 bit operating systems and runs on Win32, OS/2, HP-UX, NEXTSTEP, Linux, IRIX, AIX 4.x, Macintosh and BeOS. Docs are available in English and German. The shareware version is available for 30 day trial.
