There are plenty of libraries for PDF processing. They all have some advantages and disadvantages. Some of them can open PDF documents very fast, some libraries can create well-looking documents, and some are quite low-level and allow you to create form fields rotated to 45 degrees. In this article I show you why Docotic.Pdf is an excellent alternative to other similar components.
Each good library must encapsulate all complexity and provide handy API for client. PDF Reference itself has more than 1300 pages and it’s often quite hard to understand all the details. Our target was to give our clients extremely clean API, but to keep all power of PDF at the same time. Look at some examples, isn’t they are really simple?Read more

We have just released Docotic.Pdf library. It’s a library for PDF documents processing targeted at .NET developers. You, as a developer, can fulfil many PDF-related tasks with Docotic.Pdf. You can use the library to:
It’s our first commercial product and we’ve put a lot of work into it. PDF is our area of expertise, so we are pretty sure that you’ll find Docotic.Pdf API to be useful and neat, but we encourage you to try and see for yourself. You can download and try Docotic.Pdf from this page:

Recently, one of the users of our LibTiff.Net helped us to find a bug in Jpeg codec of the library. So, we’ve published new bug-fix release of the LibTiff.Net library.
As always, you can download updated version here:
Thanks for your help and support requests. Please don’t hesitate to contact us using e-mail or via the support form at https://bitmiracle.com/support.aspx. We love to hear from our users.
License is practically the same as for LibTiff. API is very close to original one. Code is fully managed.
LibTiff.Net was developed with a goal to produce images that are byte-to-byte equal to images produced by LibTiff-3.9.4.
You can download binaries or source code with tests here:
Differences (mostly renames of function names and types) between
LibTiff.Net and LibTiff-3.9.4 are described here.
Following codecs are implemented:
LZW, Packbits, Jpeg (using our own LibJpeg.Net), all CCITT versions, Deflate, Adobe Deflate
I hope you will find LibTiff.Net useful. Please write us if you have any questions or find any bugs.
after months of development LibJpeg.Net is ready.
LibJpeg.Net is a fully managed development library written using c#. Library based on classic LibJpeg 6b from Independent JPEG Group.
We’ve released LibJpeg.Net under very permissive BSD-like license. You can use LibJpeg.Net in open source and commercial application or library free of charge. Please read full license text on this page.
Today I want to share a good news with all of you: LibJpeg.Net is almost ready for release!
We started this free (as in speech and in beer) and open source project several months ago because we needed managed Jpeg library for our Docotic project. Docotic is a .NET library for reading and writing PDF files, so ability to handle images is essential to it.
We tried to find Jpeg library with quality comparable to quality of LibJpeg but without success. Sure, there are some .NET wrappers for LibJpeg, but no pure managed implementations. So, we started to implement our own 🙂
And now this work is almost done! We’ll announce when LibJpeg.Net will be available for download (and it’s source code too) in this blog, but you can also write us a letter and we’ll notify you by e-mail.
