Early versions of JAI (Java Advanced Imaging) did not support writing gif images, because at the time the format was proprietary. Now the patent has expired.
With ImageIO, instead of Image you use BufferedImage which is a subclass of Image, and can thus be used in any of the familiar tools that work with Images. Introduced with Java 1.4.
|raw bytes ⇒ BufferedImage||URL ⇒ BufferedImage|
|Image ⇒ raw bytes||Image ⇒ BufferedImage|
|File ⇒ BufferedImage||Learning More|
|BufferedImage ⇒ File||Links|
Here raw bytes represent the image of a *.gif, *.png or
// file to BufferedImage import java.awt.image. BufferedImage; import java.io.File; import javax.imageio.ImageIO; ... BufferedImage image = ImageIO.read( new File( "rabbit.jpg" ) );
// BufferedImage to File import javax.imageio.ImageIO; import java.awt.image.BufferedImage; import java.io.File; ... ImageIO.write( aBufferedImage, "jpeg" /* "png" "jpeg" ... format desired */, new File ( "snap.jpg" ) /* target */ );
ImageWriteParam is a way of controlling exactly how the image in encoded. There is currently no PNG (Portable Network Graphics) support for it. This is not for injecting meta info.
