Windows Metafile Library Publisher's description
The library supports reading and writing WMF files.
The library supports reading and writing WMF files. Source code is written in pure .NET from scratch following the Windows Metafile Format Specification.
WMF is all about records - recorded sequence of actions. As opposite to other vector or raster image formats that define final image appearance, WMF contains intermediate states. Those states can be modified at specific working stage or can be "played" back to render an image. From other point of view WMF file natively contains "undo" history.
Another advantage of WMF is to support both vector and raster elements in one file. Disadvantage are lack of features (e.g. no element grouping like layers or trees), 16-bit limitations, bad extensibility due to old image format.
WMF can be replaced by EPS but since Windows has good integration with the WMF it is still useful in some cases: clipboard - transfering images with copy/paste, Clip Art images from MS Office are WMF, etc.
