Image Compression SDK Technology

LEAD Technologies started with image compression in 1990. Today, LEAD continues to transform image compression. Engineers are constantly improving and creating new algorithms for specific image types. LEAD will never stop enhancing core features, such as image compression, to be faster and more robust. LEADTOOLS supplies image compression methods and technologies to .NET 6+, .NET Framework, .NET MAUI, Xamarin, UWP, C++ Class Library, C#, VB, C/C++, Java, Objective-C, Swift, and HTML / JavaScript developers.

Compression Libraries That Can't be Beat

The LEADTOOLS libraries are rich with support for bitonal (1-bit), grayscale (4-, 8-, 12-, 16-bit), and color (2- 8-, 16-, 24-, 32-, and 64-bit) image compression. Both industry standard and proprietary compression schemes are provided. Internally, LEADTOOLS can keep image data compressed in memory while processing, which reduces the memory footprint of the running application.

Automatically detect the best compression

Image Compression Optimizer Component

The LEADTOOLS Image Optimizer component uses artificial intelligence to analyze image data and desired file format to automatically compress an image with the best compression and visual quality. It is perfect to optimize images for websites and network bandwidth conservation.

The LEADTOOLS Image Optimizer supports all web image formats:

Bits per pixel: 8 for grayscale, 24 for color
JPEG 411
Bits per pixel: 8 for grayscale, 24 for color
JPEG 422
Bits per pixel: 8 for grayscale, 24 for color
Bits per pixel: 24 (color only)
Bits per pixel: 24 (color only)
Bits per pixel: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8
Bits per pixel: 1, 4, 8, 24 and 32
BMP without RLE Compression
Bits per pixel: 1, 4, 8, 16, 24, and 32
BMP with RLE Compression
Bits per pixel: 4 and 8

Check Image Compression

LEADTOOLS libraries include two compression schemes that are designed specifically to compress scanned check images:ABIC

Stream higher resolutions

JPIP Client and Server Components

LEADTOOLS libraries include JPIP client and server components. Using the JPIP components, you can progressively stream regions of interest and zoom into higher resolutions of huge images over a network or Internet.

Superior Compression Algorithms

LEADTOOLS is the premier choice to compress and decompress images. It supplies broad support for a host of industry-standard compression algorithms. LEADTOOLS also has advanced and proprietary compression techniques that result in smaller files with better quality. Because LEADTOOLS is the only toolkit that has these options, your product will have an edge to beat the competition.
