Who uses GFLSDK?

Post by xnview »

All is in the title :-)
If you use GFLSDK, could you tell me for which software? If you have an url?

  • AnRy: JPEG Lossless Rotator (utilizes XnView's GFL-SDK)*
    Have you ever thought that when you rotate a JPEG photo you lose its quality?
    When you want to rotate a JPEG image or photo, most image editors decode the image, rotate the bitmap and then reencode the JPEG. This process slightly decreases the final image quality. But, unlike other tools, this does not recode your image but performs a special lossless block transformation. As a result, the rotated image has exactly the same quality as the original. Two possible thumbnail quality/speed settings, shell integration feature (this allows you to rotate a JPEG image through a right-click on the file), batch rotation (from the shell), EXIF-data display, and favorite folders option. Free, simple, and useful.
    * jpgrotate.dll = libgfl254.dll
    jpegrotate.dll = libgfle254.dll

  • Alexander Noé: PxScan/PxView
    PxScan/PxView allow you to check the condition of recorded CDs and DVDs using Plextor drives, so that you can determine which discs your DVD writer can properly handle, and which not, or to monitor the “development” in time of certain discs, for example to see a disc degrading before it is too late.
    Performs PIE, PIF, Jitter, Beta, TA and C1/C2 scans on Plextor drives supporting those functions, removing some limitations imposed by PlexTools Professional (for example concerning scanning speed, supported drives, scale configuration...). This tool continues to exist despite of threats from Plextor's parent company.

I use it a lot. In all my particular experiments regarding image processing. I have also developed some pieces of software for image processing where I use it:

Tone Hacker: a program to rip tones from B&W toned pictures:

Histogrammar: a program (I think it's the only one out there) to generate 16-bit histograms of any image including logarithmic histograms.
http://www.guillermoluijk.com/tutorial/ ... /index.htm

Zero Noise: program that blends several images from a photo camera into a final image with expanded dynamic range and virtually zero noise. It will include anti-ghosting and local progressive blending among other advanced features. http://www.guillermoluijk.com/tutorial/ ... /index.htm

Other than CelebNamer I got some other (public) applications that use GflSDK one way or another:
  • SimilarImages Finds and displays "near-same"/similar images.
  • FastPreview - my own little ShellExt/Viewer. Nothing special indeed ;)

I'm using GflSDK in my skin converter for QIP, which converts skins from old QIP format (QIP 2005) to the new one (QIP Infium): http://forum.qip.ru/showthread.php?t=21459

Thanks, Madiazg!
I downloaded the program Imagen3D. It that is necessary for me! There are in it still defects, but in fact it is version 1.4 beta.
My works in program you can look here http://www.panoramio.com/user/2055604.

Maybe I shouldn't reply here, because I don't actually use GFL SDK now, but I just discovered that the commercial web host I use has it available for me to use in ASP - that's godaddy.com. I'm thrilled to discover that and am just starting now to research all the wonderful things I'm going to use it for. Registering here is my first step. I promise to post URLs for websites where I use it.

I have developed websites for several clients (mostly non-profit groups) that include photo albums, where members can upload photos. Some of them upload huge photo files, which take a long time to download, especially when there are 10 or 12 of them on an album page. My first plan for the GFL SDK is to create 3 versions of each file when it gets uploaded - 1 a little bigger than a thumbnail for display on the photo album page, another one 800x600 that can be displayed by clicking on the album page photo, and the third one will be the original uploaded file, that can be downloaded by someone who wants the full size image.

I'm looking forward to learning all about this and I am also looking forward to becoming a 2-way contributor here. I will gladly answer any questions about what I do that may be helpful to anyone!

Hi Pierre, I've built an application with PBWin 9.0 compiler (www.powerbasic.com) using libGFL290.dll (full version as light version is not a correct Win 32 bit).
This application aims to reproject spherical projection picture of panorama to other projection type. It's not a viewer application and respect your license, as far as I guess.
My free application using libGFL290.dll can be downloaded for free when connecting to my personal website:
then select 'Projections Reprojector' in the 'Info links" menu.

Thanks for your work, Pierre.

We use the GFL SDK for digital image processing in our product Si-Dem, one of the most successful pieces of debt management and parking enforcement systems in the UK.
