While Xojo has built in features for loading and saving JPEG picture files, this plugin gives you much more features:

  • Load and save RGB, CMYK and Grayscale JPEG images.
  • Faster than built in JPEG functions.
  • Load damaged or partial downloaded JPEG files.
  • Read/Write metadata and ICC Profiles.
  • Get error/warning messages on damaged files.
  • Rotate or flip JPEG images without recompression.
  • Load JPEG files row by row to not block your app on huge files and show progress.
  • Load/save JPEG files to/from memoryblocks as raw values.
  • Read only JPEG header without image data to quickly find metadata.
  • Read quickly thumbnails from JPEG files (2, 4 or 8 scale factor).


This plugin is based in part on the work of the Independent JPEG Group. (libjpeg)
