libjpeg-turbo is a high-speed version of libjpeg for x86 and x86-64 processors. It uses SIMD instructions (MMX, SSE, SSE2) to accelerate baseline JPEG compression and decompression. libjpeg-turbo is generally 2-4 times as fast as the unmodified version of libjpeg. It also includes a wrapper library for the TurboJPEG API used by VirtualGL and TurboVNC. It was originally based on libjpeg/SIMD but has improved support for Mac OS X, 64-bit platforms, 32-bit and big endian pixel formats (RGBA/BGRA/ABGR/ARGB), accelerated Huffman encoding/decoding, and various other fixes.
Twibright Registrator removes noise and can quadruple the resolution of a camera in software by matching several pictures together. It can be applied to remove noise, JPEG artifacts, rain, CRT stripes, and passersby. It can enhance night photos and provide the effect of long exposure in daylight. Pictures are matched by removing shift, rotation, zoom, and brightness changes. It features high performance bilinear interpolation, automatic adaptive corrective deconvolution, 32-bit float depth, photometrically linear space, and 16-bit depth PNG output.
jPDFImages is a Java library to export images from PDF files and import images into PDF files. It can create images from pages in a PDF document and export them as JPEG, TIFF, or PNG images. It can return the image of any page in the document to the host Java application as a BufferedImage for further processing or to save in different formats. It can create documents or add pages to existing documents by importing TIFF, JPEG, and PNG images. After creating or modifying a document, it can save to the local filesystem or to an output stream to be able to serve the document directly to a client browser when working within a J2EE server. jPDFImages is built on top of Qoppa's proprietary PDF technology, so you do not have to install any third party software or drivers. It is also 100% Java, so it is completely platform-independent.
