The following RAW file types are also supported, at least partially: MRW, CRW, NEF, DCR, and DNG. It can read thumbnails, read metadata (IPTC, EXIF, and XMP), edit metadata, get image width and height, get the number of images contained in a file, define an area to read, add a ProgressListener, choose an image channel to read, set a scale factor, set subsampling (JPEG only), and read an image (or channel) directly into an array.

Supported file types are:

BMP 1, 4, 8, 16, 24 and 32 bit uncompressed; 4 and 8 bit compressed
TIFF 1, 4, 8, 16, 32, 48 and 64 bit per pixel; bilevel, grayscale, palette, RGB, CMYC, Cie Lab, YCrCb color spaces; CCIT1D, G3, G4, ZIP, JPEG, LZW and PackBits compression

get number of images, contained in file
define an area to read
add a ProgressListener
estimate JPEG compression/quality
read an image channel
set a scale factor
set subsampling (JPEG only)
read an image (or channel) directly into an array
easy IPTC handling with IPTCParser and IPTCEditor

What's New in This Release:
The possibility to manipulate (create/add/remove) Image Resource Blocks to PSD files was added.
