JPEG 2000 support in GIMP#March 23, 2006 at 2:32 pm | Posted in GIMP | 2 Comments
Yesterday evening I made some nice progress with implementing JPEG 2000 support in GIMP#. Right now I just dump the data to a (huge) ppm file, but at least it seems to work. I will try to finish the plug-in this weekend, so it can be included with the 0.8 release. Saving JPEG 2000 is not supported yet, but is also quite trivial. This is planned for 0.9. To build the plug-in you will need to download the ECW Compression C/C++ SDK Library, available here.
Soon you will be able to load all your .ecw, .jp2, .j2k, .j2c, .jpc, .jpx and .jpf files in GIMP 🙂
