Operation System: Windows

TIFFY View (Java Edition) is a modern, platform-independent application to view and print images of the following formats: TIFF, BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG
Using high speed Virtual Machines with JIT-compiler ,TIFFY View (Java Edition) catches up with high speed image processors in native code without the dependency to a specific platform. It leverages the power of the underlying Java™ Virtual Machine and operating system (32 or even 64 bit, modern graphic subsystem and printer drivers etc.).
Usable as a standalone application conform to the "100% pure Java concept", TIFFY gives you best safety for your investment in a modern information infrastructure.
Alternatively the program can be run as a Java applet in any Java capable web browser to extend standard internet/intranet technology with a powerful component for electronic document management.
Much effort was spent to increase speed and reduce resource consumption, so TIFFY View is recommended also for professional applications handling extremely huge images. This was achieved by packed data storage and special resampling/scaling and dithering algorithms. Several implementations already use TIFFY as viewer in combination with FileNET image archives. Please contact the author for special libraries references and conditions.
Emphasis was put on comfort using TIFFY: A powerful preview function in the filemanager with additional file information and a delete function helps you managing big archives. When the image is loaded all common key and mouse functions are available to navigate and zoom in/out.
In professional document management line drawings and scanned text documents are usually stored in TIFF format with CCITT Fax group 4 compression. TIFFY View decodes these images extremely fast. Optional antialiasing improves the display quality significantly: Pixels lost during down-scaling are included as grayscale information in surrounding pixels.
Text remains readable through several reduction steps, horizontal / vertical lines do not get lost. For bilevel (black/white) images the program contains graylevel scaling code that is approx. 50 times faster than the standard Java methods for image scaling.
Several control parameters can be passed to the application on the commandline or as named parameters on a web page. This allows you to extend existing image oriented applications easily. Developers of other Java™ based applications can make use of TIFFY as a Java class or bean. A special TIFFY Toolkit (for the Java™ platform) is available to extend your own application with the power of TIFFY´s class library.
Images viewed on the screen can be sent directly to any printer supported by your operating system. Size, area and position are adjusted using a comfortable printer dialog. Depending on the configuration of your web browser, printing is also avialable in intranet-/internet based applications.
