ImageX is an ActiveX component designed to help you add image processing features to your applications. These reusable components allow you to enhance the usage of your programs with the ability to create and handle images.
The package includes the OCX file and multiple samples that showcase the features of the ActiveX. You can use these samples with C#, VB.NET ASP, HTML or even Microsoft Access.
The programmers working with C# or Visual Basic can use this control to create new images and manage the ones loaded from the hard drive. It can also generate new images by capturing a part of your desktop or acquiring the file from a TWAIN scanner.
If you need to manipulate or edit the image file, this component can help you rotate, flip or transpose the image without changing the quality. You can also add new shapes or insert a text on the image by using ImageX.
Since it supports most of the popular image formats, you can use this app for editing JPG, TIFF, ICO, PNG and PSD files. It can also help you extract frames from a movie that uses the AVI format and save them to a different format.
An interesting feature is the ability to extract the EXIF metadata from the JPG files and display it for the end user. The conversion tools have not been forgotten as the component can generate PDF documents by using a TIFF source.
Overall, ImageX provides various features that can be put to good use by developers who create image processing applications.
