LEADTOOLS WIC Image Codecs

WIC Formats

LEADTOOLS imaging SDKs include WIC-Enabled Codecs with over 40 image encoders and decoders that integrate seamlessly with the Windows Imaging Component (WIC) framework. By registering the LEADTOOLS WIC codecs, applications that support WIC and WPF such as Vista Photo Explorer will automatically have access to over 40 image formats. And, when using the Windows Explorer thumbnail view, users will see an actual thumbnail image for all of these file formats instead of a generic icon.

Overview of LEADTOOLS WIC Codecs

  • Native 32 and 64 bit LEADTOOLS WIC codecs for over 40 image formats and sub-formats
  • Add LEADTOOLS WIC codecs to single and multi-thread applications
  • Integrates seamlessly with Windows XP Service Pack 3 and up

WIC Defined

The Windows Imaging Component (WIC) framework, included with Windows Vista and Windows XP Service Pack 3, provides a single, common set of APIs to create applications to load, save, convert and process images, with no prior knowledge of specific image formats required. Once an image format codec is written for WIC and installed on a machine that supports WIC, there is system-wide support for that format in all applications that use WIC or WPF. This means that any application using WIC can access, display, process, save and print images using a consistent development interface for all image file formats.
