About File Formats

Every application that deals with images has specific kinds of data to store and interchange, from icons to photographs. The various hardware devices used to record and store the graphics data, and the hardware intended to display or print the data also affect the design of the format. This leads to a diversity of file formats. To add to this diversity, different groups of people have different ideas about how to structure and access an image, and what kind of additional information should be stored with an image. Even formats designed to store the same kind of data can differ. Other factors that affect the outcome of the design include memory considerations, storage size, accuracy, and portability.

ImageGear supports graphics file formats from all of these genres, providing you with a complete range of imaging capabilities, including the capture and processing of scanned images.

In addition, ImageGear functionality enables you to exchange data easily from one format to another, and to make improvements in images using powerful image-processing API.
