from The Buzz Media
imgscalr is an very simple and efficient (hardware accelerated) вЂњbest-practicesвЂќ image-scaling library implemented in pure Java 2D
imgscalr is an very simple and efficient (hardware accelerated) вЂњbest-practicesвЂќ image-scaling library implemented in pure Java 2D; as of the 4.0 release imgscalr now includes a handful of other convenience image operations, all as easy to use as resize.
This library makes uses of efficient Java2D scaling techniques advocated by the Java2D team which provides hardware accelerated operations on most platforms.
100% Java code based on Java2D, no native libraries to install
Java that works in вЂњheadlessвЂќ environments without special environment variable settings; it just works.
Because there are no native libraries, you mitigate the risk of native libraries crashing the host VM (e.g. your app server) or thread-contention issues
Hardware accelerated on supported platforms (uses the optimized Java2D rendering pipeline)
Fast; not faster than a native-C solution, but still damn fast.
Simple, simple, simple. A handful of static, 1-word methods you can call. No complex configurations, managers, encoders/decoders or any other nonsense. imgscalr is not a вЂњgraphics libraryвЂќ, it is a set of the most commonly used graphic operations, optimized and ready to do your bidding.
What's New in This Release:В· Added support for a new Method.ULTRA_QUALITY scaling method.
В· This new method uses 3.5x more incremental steps when scaling an image down than the QUALITY method, providing a much more accurate result. This is
В· especially noticeable in thumbnails that have diagonal lines that get jagged
В· during down-sizing with QUALITY or lower methods.
В· The quality of the ULTRA_QUALITY scaling method is almost on par with the
В· image resize functionality built into Mac OS X; that is to say it is better
В· than GIMP's Lancsoz3 and Windows 7 built-in resize.
В· Fixed subtle bug with incremental scaling and Mode.FIT_EXACT causing the
В· incremental scaling to stop too soon resulting in the wrong-sized result
В· The stop-condition for incremental scaling assumed that in every case the
В· width AND height would be shrinking each iteration; when using
В· Mode.FIT_EXACT this is not necessarily true as one dimension may not change
В· at all or stop changing before another.
System Requirements:В· Java
