Initializes PDF and PS libraries.

static void Initialize(); 
This initialization method must be called for each thread in the multi-threaded application.

The resource content must be located in the same to ImageGear assembly place.

A call to an Initialize() method should be paired with a call to the Terminate method. The very first call to Initialize() will initialize the entire PDF library, while its paired call to Terminate method will de-initialize and release its memory. Multiple PDF initialization/termination pairs are supported in a multi-threaded PDF application, because it is required to initialize and terminate PDF in each child thread.

PDF support requires ImGearFileFormats.Filters.Add(ImGearPDF.CreatePDFFormat()) call be made before the first call to ImGearPDF.Initialize().

PS support requires both ImGearFileFormats.Filters.Add(ImGearPDF.CreatePDFFormat()) and ImGearFileFormats.Filters.Add(ImGearPDF.CreatePSFormat()) calls be made before the first call to ImGearPDF.Initialize().
