I downloaded sun's codecs  that Oleg used in his TIFFRenderer. Jeremias, you mean that we can legally just put those in the FOP-code?
Following codecs are included in : - TIFF - JPEG - PNG - BMP So it should be possible to create a renderer for each of this file formats. But do we need them all? Do we also need GIF encoding ( only supports GIF decoding) . If yes, we'll have to use other libraries like ACME Labs GIF encoder (right?) Besides, I haven't understand yet if Oleg will donate his code to Apache. > Otherwise, I'd rather use ImageIO even if it's only available in JDKs > >=1.4. I thought FOP should be 1.3 compilant ? So how do we go around that? Regards, Renaud  http://nagoya.apache.org/eyebrowse/[EMAIL PROTECTED]&msgId=1332332
