Here is list of new features and improvements:

  • Added an arbitrary affine and projective transform (see ApplyMatrixTransform class for more details).

  • Added JPEG2000 files support.

  • Added an ability to apply lossless JPEG transforms. In particular, now Graphics Mill enables you to:

    o Apply lossless rotate and flip.

    o Recompress only a part of JPEG file. E.g. if you put a watermark at the image, you can just recompress only the part of the JPEG file which is updated and leave the rest intact.

    o Edit EXIF and IPTC metadata without JPEG recompression.

  • Added GdiGraphics.GetPixel/SetPixel methods which enables you to retrieve or modify a single pixel of the screen or bitmap.

  • Added spatial unit converter class (see UnitConverter class for more details).

  • Added code samples which demonstrate advanced printing features of Graphics Mill.

  • Added a guide for migration from Graphics Mill 2.0 (ActiveX) to Graphics Mill 3.1 for .NET.

  • Now histograms can be build also for indexed bitmaps.

  • Improved PDF writer:

    o Now it can save multiple pages in PDF file.

    o Now it supports ZIP compression.

  • Improved TIFF reader speed.

  • Improved AutoLevels, AutoBrightness, and AutoContrast algorithm.

  • Simplified license key embedding process.

  • Minor improvements in API.

  • Changed behavior of BitmapData.Dispose method: now it automatically unlocks bits.

  • Fixed problem with TIFF reader: 4-bit grayscale TIFF files now can be loaded into Graphics Mill now (they are converted to 8-bit grayscale).

  • Fixed a problem with an image drawing when incorrect color profile is attached.

  • Other minor bugs fixed.

You can download evaluation version here.
