Using the Flexibility of the TIFF Document Format and DotImage to Solve Problems
Because of the flexibility of TIFF, it can be a challenge to write programs that honor all the possible conditions that are present in a TIFF file. The Windows Picture and Fax Viewer attempts to do this, but it only understands white is zero as a photometric interpretation. I hear about this issue most often from customers who are generating TIFF images and are puzzled when they open one in the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer and it comes out inverted. For that, I've created a small chunk of code that can normalize 1-bit images to white is zero
Generating a Website Color Scheme from an Image
How can a color scheme be extracted from an image? The problem with determining a color scheme is that there are too many colors in the image, yet the algorithm to convert the image must find a set of colors that most accurately represents the original. Atalasoft provides the code right here.
