Accusoft, the leading provider of document, content and imaging solutions, today announces the release of enhanced versions of two software development kits (SDKs) from within its PICTools product family: PICTools Photo and PICTools Document.
PICTools Photo features a complete image editing toolset to enrich photo management software, online photo services, kiosk applications, and more. PICTools Document delivers powerful image cleanup functions to create superior document imaging, records management, and forms processing applications.
The enhancements to PICTools Photo include PNG file optimization, which enables applications to minimize PNG file size without degrading image quality. Accusoft’s patented JPEG compression technology is acknowledged as the fastest and finest available. Now PICTools Photo has applied that science to optimize PNG files for faster display and page load times. According to a study published last year by technology survey company W3Techs, the non-patented PNG format is now more popular than GIF file types.
The new version of PICTools Document features enhanced inverse text correction functions, a new global/local binarization algorithm, and a new dot-shading sub-opcode. These improvements will support users performing precise, accurate cleanup and correction of bitonal document images for processing and archiving.
In addition to its document and photo applications, Accusoft’s PICTools family, which features the fastest image compression and decompression available, also includes versions for medical and fingerprint applications. Although PICTools’ high-performance C libraries support fast, small-footprint development, the functionality in PICTools is also available in higher-level Accusoft SDKs for .NET, in such products as ScanFix Xpress, FormSuite, ImagXpress, and Barcode Xpress.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
