pngquant is a batch conversion utility to quantize and dither truecolor PNG images, especially those with a full alpha channel, down to "RGBA-palette" PNGs (i.e., PLTE + tRNS in PNG parlance). Such images are usually two to four times smaller than the full 32-bit versions, and partial transparency is preserved quite nicely. This makes pngquant especially useful both for Web sites and for PlayStation 2 development, where one of the texture formats is RGBA-palette-based (though not PNG-compressed).
WS Charts is a PHP class that can be used to render charts of several types. It takes a list of values that define points of one or more sets and renders charts of several possible types: line, bar, surface, and pie. The class provides options to choose colors, gradients, show coordinates, etc. The generated charts can be saved to a given file or displayed as the current script output.
Animmerger stitches 2D images together into either a static image or an animation, while attempting to preserve a global frame of reference (static background). That is, for a movie that follows an actor around (and the background scrolls to follow them), it creates a movie that has a fixed background, and the camera moves around in the scene. The most obvious application of animmerger is in automatic map stitching for 2D video games, but there are many general purposes for which the program can be used. Its color quantization and dithering algorithm set is particularly advanced.
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.
RoseThorn is a cross-platform library for 2D and 3D games running on GNU/Linux (and possibly other Unix-like OSes) and Windows. Features include: hardware accelerated 2D and 3D rendering; Ogg and WAV Sound support with OpenAL; Lua scripting; BMP, JPEG, and PNG image loading and saving (from screenshots); easily created and modified user interfaces with XML and CSS, combined with Lua event handling; separate 2D and 3D libraries; support for multiple fonts in both TTF and bitmap formats; support for OBJ, 3DS, MD5, and RTM model formats; skeletal animation (a work in progress); support for UDP and TCP networking; thread and mutex support; a Simple Shader API; 2D animated sprites; and some basic cryptography support. There is simple event management, with key/mouse bindings easily customized from the in-game console, config file, command line, or GUI.
