The Alagad Image Component is a 100% native ColdFusion Component used to create and manipulate image files. Written entirely in ColdFusion CFML, the Image Component does not require installation of any additional software. The Image Component is not a CFX tag and is not Platform dependant.

Because the Image Component is written in pure ColdFusion and instantiates only native Java objects, it compiles with the rest of your CFML files to Java bytecode and performs much better than competing products.

Using the Image Component you can perform all of the most frequently requested image related functions including:

* Read and Write Images
* Create and Draw Into Images
* Resize Images
* Find the Widths and Heights of Images
* Draw Text Into Images
* Draw Images Into Other Images (watermarking)
* Control Image Compression Quality
* Much, Much, More!

The Alagad Image Component requires almost no effort to install and use. Simply place the component into your custom tags directory or any directory in your site and then instantiate it using the ColdFusion CreateObject method. Once you have the Image Component instantiated you can use its methods to begin creating and manipulating images.
