As a developer, you would have needed to generate images from within your
application dynamically. This includes generation of graphs and visual aids. You
would also need to manipulate images. Normally you do it by processing the image
binary format yourself. However, the Atalasoft DotImage suite of products offers
options that allow you to work with images for .NET 1.1 or .NET 2.0. This suite
of products has the following bundles:

Price: USD 1,999 for Imaging edition
Meant For: .NET/graphics devs
Key Specs: Image processing, supports all popular formats, TWAIN, PDF and AJAX support, OCR
Pros: Drag and drop building, well documented SDK, powerful functions
Cons: Overwhelming for someone not familiar with terminology

DotImage Photo that
contains basic image processing that can read and write all popular formats like
BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, TIF, etc. It can apply effects to images using filters and
can allow you to perform zooming, viewing and scrolling on the image as well.

DotImage Photo Pro has all the features above and adds on professional
quality commands that are used in pre-press and photographc industry. For
instance, you can change image metadata, color management and adjustments, etc.

DotImage Imaging is the highest end bundle that also adds features
like TWAIN scanning support, and AJAX enabled image viewer for the Web, PDF and
annotation support, barcode recognition, and automatic functions like
despeckling, border detection and OCR. These suites also have many add-ons like
language packs for OCR and specialized effect manipulators as well. Installation
of this suite is fairly long and you need to select the OCR or non-OCR version
of the product during installation. The install also modifies a set of features
in Visual Studio.NET and installs a bunch of demos and code samples. Once this
is done, a product activation phase starts up that lets you select the
components you have paid for and activate them over the Internet-only then do
the products actually start working on your machine.

DotImage Imaging adds features like TWAIN scanning
support and AJAX enabled image viewer for the Web to make your work as easy as dragging and dropping images

Once this is done, you’re ready to start developing your applications with
DotImage. The SDK documentation, samples and demos are very well
explained and it is fairly easy to start creating and manipulating images.

The SDK documentation, samples and demos are very well explained and it is fairly easy to start working o it. All you have to do is choose the one you wish to work with

However, you must realize that the advanced versions of the suites should be
used only by someone who actually knows the meanings of many of the imaging
specific terminology only, as this can become very overwhelming for someone who
is not a graphics application developer.
