  • canvas-svg - This is a set of related components that make canvas and SVG play together more. Notably, it allows you to save a canvas 2D context as SVG, and to have an SVG mirror of a canvas context.
var c = document.getElementById('canvas');
var ctx = c.getContext('2d');
ctx.drawSvg(SVG_XML_OR_PATH_TO_SVG, dx, dy, dw, dh);
  • JessyInk is a JavaScript that can be incorporated into an Inkscape SVG image containing several layers. Each layer will be converted into one slide of a presentation. Current features include: slide transitions, effects, an index sheet, a master slide and auto-texts like slide title, slide number and number of slides.
  • MagicMarkup - Easily create interactive mockups in Inkscape, without adding inline JS!
  • Vector Magic - Automatically convert bitmap images like JPEGs, GIFs and PNGs to the crisp, clean, scalable vector art of EPS, SVG, and PDF with the world's best auto-tracing software.
  • 1x1px - Ever needed a 1x1 transparent PNG pixel?

JPG

Reference

  • JPEGclub.org develops new JPEG features and maintains the Independent JPEG Group's (IJG) software.

Optimisation

"when your JPEG image is under 10K, it’s better to be saved as baseline JPEG (estimated 75% chance it will be smaller) for files over 10K the progressive JPEG will give you a better compression (in 94% of the cases)"

  • pngquant is a command-line utility and a library for converting 24/32-bit PNG images to paletted (8-bit) PNGs. The conversion reduces file sizes significantly (often as much as 70%) and preserves full alpha transparency. [5]

  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remote_Imaging_Protocol - associated Remote Imaging Protocol Scripting Language, RIPscrip, is a scripting language that provides a system for sending vector graphics over low-bandwidth links, notably modems. It was originally created by Jeff Reeder, Jim Bergman, and Mark Hayton of TeleGrafix Communications in Huntington Beach, California to enhance bulletin board systems and other applications.

G'MIC

  • G'MIC is a full-featured open-source framework for image processing. It provides several different user interfaces to convert/manipulate/filter/visualize generic image datasets, ranging from 1d scalar signals to 3d+t sequences of multi-spectral volumetric images, thus including 2d color images.

Generation

  • GD is an open source code library for the dynamic creation of images by programmers. GD is written in C, and "wrappers" are available for Perl, PHP and other languages. GD creates PNG, JPEG and GIF images, among other formats. GD is commonly used to generate charts, graphics, thumbnails, and most anything else, on the fly. While not restricted to use on the web, the most common applications of GD involve website development.
  • Processing is a programming language, development environment, and online community. Since 2001, Processing has promoted software literacy within the visual arts and visual literacy within technology. Initially created to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach computer programming fundamentals within a visual context, Processing evolved into a development tool for professionals. Today, there are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production.
  • Eschersketch - an experiment with pattern design in the classical wallpaper groups. It allows one to prototype tiling designs in HTML5 Canvas.
  • polyHédronisme - a toy for building complex 3D polyhedral shapes from simple ones by "recipes".
  • Mondrian is a smart and easy-to-learn vector graphics web app.
  • Fakeimg.pl is a little tool that generates images with an URL. Choose the size, the colors, even the text. Oh… and it’s free.
  • Evolvotron is an interactive "generative art" application for Linux to evolve images/textures/patterns/animations through an iterative process of random mutation and user-selection driven evolution. (This process is also often referred to as "evolutionary art" or "genetic art".) If you like lava lamps, and still think the Mandelbrot set is cool, this could be the software for you.
  • binglide is a visual reverse engineering tool. It is designed to offer a quick overview of the different data types that are present in a file.

  • GPS is a collection of brushes and accompanying tool presets. Tool presets are a simply saved tool options, highly useful feature of the GIMP. The goal of GPS is to provide an adequate working environment for graphic designers and artists to begin to paint and feel comfortable with GIMP from their first use. Later the user will change these settings based on his own workflow preferences and understanding of GIMP.
