Why Docotic.Pdf is better than X

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.

Very easy to use

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?

I’m pleased to announce that we’ve completed LibTiff.Net. It is free and open source version (port) of classic LibTiff written using C#.

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.

LibJpeg.Net is at final stage of development


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.
