Supported formats

Currently abydos supports 48 graphics formats. The first goal was to support at least all formats supported by GdkPixbufexternal link, which now has been reached. Both GdkPixbuf and abydos only supports a subset the QTIF image format. That is embedded JPEG or PNG images. But the format can contain (at least) 12 other types of data. At least one of those also supports animation.

For most formats abydos rely on third party libraries. Some specific for one format and some capable of handling wide range of image formats, such as ImageMagickexternal link.
