paintlib is a C++ class library for image file decoding and manipulation. It currently supports the PNG, TGA, TIFF, JPEG/JFIF, Windows BMP, and Mac PICT formats. The PNG, TIFF, and JPEG decoders are based on libpng, libtiff, and libjpeg, respectively. Data source and destination formats can be tailored as necessary. Additionally, format-independent but fast bitmap manipulation classes are available.
