A number of code samples, including a business card editing Web application. Whenever you create an application which generates personalized graphics, edit printing production, you encounter a challenge - how to store templates for that graphics. As usual some custom format is developed for this purpose. But as usual a person who designs these templates cannot use it directly. Designers use some industry-standard application such as Adobe Photoshop etc. Hence you face a problem of converting between files your designer creates and your custom template format.Advanced PSD Add-on allows to eliminate this repetitive and costly step. Your designers can create templates in Adobe Photoshop and then your application can use these files directly. It allows to avoid maintaining a custom template format and evolving technicians into work of designers.Combining features of Advanced PSD Add-on and Graphics Mill for .NET you can a powerful pre-print processing tool which enables:
Scan PSD file with raster and text layers.
Merge all frames into one image (TIFF, PDF, JPEG, etc).
When merging, replace text or images, e.g. by loading it from database or localization resources.
Create multiple versions of image for different viewing environments (e.g. hi-res for printing, lo-res for web preview, or even specially optimized for mobile devices).
Provide CMYK RGB conversion with color management (using ICC profiles).
Manipulate most wide-spread layer settings, such as text font, color, position, size, etc.
