Image Formats

DynamicPDF Core Suite for .NET supports the following 9 common image types.

File Type Description
JPEG JPEGs are handled natively through a highly efficient pass through process.
PNG PNGs are handled natively. If the PNG does not have an alpha channel (transparency), it uses a highly efficient pass through process. If the PNG does have an alpha channel it is parsed and reformatted for inclusion in a PDF document.
BMP BMPs are converted to a bitmap for inclusion in a PDF document.
EMF EMFs are converted to a bitmap for inclusion in a PDF document.
WMF WMFs are converted to a bitmap for inclusion in a PDF document.
EXIF EXIFs are handled natively through a highly efficient pass through process.
JPEG 2000 JPEG 2000s are handled natively through a highly efficient pass through process.
GIF GIFs are handled natively, but are parsed and reformatted for inclusion in a PDF document.
TIFF TIFFs are handled natively and most types of TIFFs (LZW being the exception) use a highly efficient pass through process. Multi-page Tiffs are supported, allowing access to any page in a TIFF document.
