Online PR News – 06-August-2014 – Lane Cove/ New South Wales – What's New in this Release?

We are pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Imaging for .NET 2.5.0. With the release of 2.5.0, Aspose.Imaging for .NET supports setting the resolution for PNG image format. In order to provide this feature, the Aspose.Imaging for .NET API has exposed the ResolutionSetting class. The PngOptions class now has a property by the name ResolutionSettings that accepts an instance of the ResolutionSetting class to specify the horizontal & vertical resolution. One of the advantages of saving images in PNG format is that PNG can have transparent background. Aspose.Imaging for .NET has provided the feature to specify the transparency for PNG images. Starting from 2.5.0, Aspose.Imaging for .NET API has exposed the ResolutionSettings property for the PngOptions class that accepts an instance of the TransparentColorSetting class to specify any color that can be set as transparent color in the output image. With this release, the RasterImage class provides a Rotate method to help users who wish to rotate an image at a specific angle. The RasterImage.Rotate method accepts three parameters as listed below.

• Rotation Angle: A float type parameter specifies the rotation angle on which the image has to be rotated. A positive value rotates the image clockwise whereas a negative value performs an anticlockwise rotation.
• Resize Proportionally: A Boolean type parameter specifies if the image size has to changed according to the rotated rectangle (corner points) projections. If set to false, the image dimensions are untouched and only the internal image contents are rotated.
• Background Color: A color type parameter specifies the color to be filled in the background of the rotated image.
