jWordConvert is a Java library which can read and render Word documents natively to convert to PDF, to convert to images, or to print the documents automatically. The library is 100% Java, so it can run on any platform which supports Java. It does not use any third party software or native calls, and can be run in a server environment or integrated into a desktop application.
Urban Lightscape is a photo filter for exposure correction, localized brightness adjustments, dodging and burning, and the introduction of synthetic lighting to a photo. A simple "double-click-and-drag" paradigm is used to place control points on a photo, and clever edge detection localises and interpolates lightness adjustments around and between these points. Results are rapid, with additional controls for more subtle refinements.
