  • Imaging Common Dialogs - LEADTOOLS Imaging Common Dialog boxes save hours of tedious programming and provide a consistent look and feel by extending Windows common dialogs to provide imaging specific capabilities. The Common Dialogs provide professional imaging common dialogs for image processing, conversion, effects and more.
  • WIA Support - Provides a powerful set of functions spanning the full spectrum of digital imaging, including in-depth support for image acquisition from a wide variety of hardware devices.
  • Compression Support - Supports many of the industry standard compression techniques including JPEG, JPEG2000, CCITT, LZW, ZIPLIB, LEAD ABC, NITF, Huffman, Arithmetic, RLE and Packbits.
  • Screen Capture - Powerful screen capture functionality that can capture resources from files, menus, windows, clients, areas of screen in different shapes, etc. The screen capture tools are extremely useful, especially for documentation and provide another means of image input.
  • TWAIN Scanning Support - TWAIN drivers are included with almost all scanners and other image acquisition hardware. Also, with recent advancements TWAIN is the driver of choice for performance and reliability. LEADTOOLS Imaging Pro supports all functionality included in the TWAIN v1.9 specification.
  • Database Support - Provides both high level and low level database support including the ability to bind to a VB data control, an OLEDB interface, an ODBC interface and low level functions to load and save images to memory.
  • Image Display/Special Effects - Render images or selected regions to a display device such as a monitor or printer while controlling position/scaling, resample method, brightness, contrast, gamma, palette, dithering, source and destination clipping rectangles, and more. Navigate large images using LEAD's pan-window, browse a group of images using LEAD's thumbnail viewer†, apply 2000+ paint transitions and effects† between viewed images.
  • Internet Support - Several different levels of Internet support including ASP.NET (AJAX) and Web Forms, objects that can be packaged into CAB files, objects that can be created on a web server, functions to load images from a URL or memory stream, controls for HTTP and FTP support, control to parse files uploaded to a web server and controls to create powerful client server applications that send remote procedure calls via TCP/IP. Create JPIP client and server applications with the JPIP Module.
  • Image Processing - Over 200 image processing functions are divided into four basic categories: filters, transforms, color conversion, and drawing. Most image processing functions in LEADTOOLS support region of interest, allowing only a portion of an image to be processed. To add on even more functionality specific to digital painting, LEAD offers Digital Paint functionality in the Imaging Pro that includes a variety of functions for digital painting including the creation and use of brushes, shapes, textures and more.
  • Color Conversion - To ensure that you can convert images from one format to another or render images to any display device, LEADTOOLS includes powerful color conversion functionality. The color conversion functions include support for over 8 different dithering methods, many palette options and the ability to convert image data to any supported bits per pixel to any other support bits per pixel. Supported values are 1-8 bit color or grayscale, 16 bit color, 24 bit color and 32 bit color. If you need 12 or 16 bit grayscale or 48 and 64 bit color support, check out the Medical Imaging product.
  • Color Space Conversions - Images can be converted, separated to and reconstructed from individual RGB, CMYK, CMY, HSV, HSL, YUV, YIQ, CIELAB, XYZ, YCCK, Y41P, UYVY, YUY2, YVU9 abd YCC color planes using LEAD's built in conversion functions, ICC color profiles or Emulation Tables.
  • Image Optimizer - LEADTOOLS provides functionality to optimize certain image file formats and reduces the size by saving images using the optimal bits per pixel, based on specific optimization options.
  • AJAX WebForms - LEADTOOLS AJAX support, implemented in the LEADTOOLS Raster Tile Image Viewer, enables you to add fast, interactive image viewing into your ASP.NET 2.0 web applications. The ImageViewer is used to display any image file format supported by web browsers (JPEG, GIF, PNG and BMP) and can automatically handle zooming and scrolling. Load all or part of a specific image file that uses any image file format supported by LEADTOOLS.
  • Printing Support - With LEADTOOLS, printing is just as easy as displaying an image. You control the size and location that the image should be printed. Additionally, Windows GDI functions can be used in conjunction with LEADTOOLS printing providing the flexibility to print text and multiple images on the same page.
  • Digital Paint - A must for anyone who wants to add digital painting functionality to their application. With the LEADTOOLS Digital Paint feature, a developer can create an entire image editing or design application.
  • ePrint Integration - The functionality of ePrint is available to programmers. Take control of the ePrint features that are available to your users with the API developer version of ePrint.
  • Raster PDF Plug-ins - Extend support to include PDF, Postscript, and EPS formats, providing capability for loading, saving, viewing, rasterizing, and encoding PDF, Postscript, and EPS files. The Plug-ins integrate seamlessly with the broad imaging functionality of LEADTOOLS toolkits, such as specialized display, color-conversion, image-processing, scanning, annotations, and document clean-up.
  • JPIP Client & Server - Allows storage of very large, compressed JPEG2000 images at the server, plus transmission of image resolution, quality and region of interest (ROI) as specified by a client. This allows client applications to interact with a stored image without transmitting the entire image, or decoding the entire image code-stream. The server and client components include a number of options for controlling this image streaming and decoding.
  • Barcode Detection, Recognition and Writing -Support for detecting, recognizing and writing linear (1D), DataMatrix (2D), PDF417 (2D) and QR (2D) barcodes are available to add on to the Imaging Pro SDK. Support for detecting, recognizing and writing linear (1D) barcodes are available to add on to the Mobile Imaging SDK.
