Subject Proposal to contribute the External Image Tasks to ANT 1.7
Date Thu, 03 Jun 2004 05:10:25 GMT

I developed and maintain the external Image task available at It is currently listed as one 
of the external tasks and is distributed under the Apache License.
I would like to contribute it to the Image task in ANT 1.7, since I see 
no point in maintaining separate internal and external Image tasks.

My implementation currently supports a combination of imaging operations 
on files or filesets such as

1. resize/ scale/ bestfit
2. crop
3. add text
4. overlay another image
5. rotate
6. grayscale
7. add transparency

It works with Java2D or JAI giving similar output (JAI and ImageIO will 
enable support for more image formats). GIF encoding is also supported 
with pjatools.jar. It is built on PMIW 

The next step is to support operations such as blur, sharpen, etc that 
PMIW already supports along with basic Draw/ Shape operations.
