LEADTOOLS supports ZIPLIB compression in a variety of formats, including PNG and TIFF. The PNG format was originally designed to replace LZW-compressed GIF due to licensing requirements imposed by Unisys. Licensing constraints on the LZW algorithm have expired, but ZIPLIB compression remains a popular, flexible, and efficient way to compress images.
