SIMD-accelerated libjpeg-compatible JPEG codec library
libjpeg-turbo is a JPEG image codec that uses SIMD instructions (MMX, SSE2, NEON, AltiVec) to accelerate baseline JPEG compression and decompression on x86, x86-64, ARM, and PowerPC systems. On such systems, libjpeg-turbo is generally 2-6x as fast as libjpeg, all else being equal. On other types of systems, libjpeg-turbo can still outperform libjpeg by a significant amount, by virtue of its highly-optimized Huffman coding routines. In many cases, the performance of libjpeg-turbo rivals that of proprietary high-speed JPEG codecs. libjpeg-turbo implements both the traditional libjpeg API as well as the less powerful but more straightforward TurboJPEG API. libjpeg-turbo also features colorspace extensions that allow it to compress from/decompress to 32-bit and big-endian pixel buffers (RGBX, XBGR, etc.), as well as a full-featured Java interface.
Advanced PNG optimization program
OptiPNG is a PNG optimizer that recompresses image files to a smaller size, without losing any information. This program also converts external formats (BMP, GIF, PNM and TIFF) to optimized PNG, and performs PNG integrity checks and corrections.
Reference library for supporting the Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format.

The UFRaw (Unidentified Flying Raw) is a tool for reading and manipulating raw images from digital cameras. It supports most of the existing raw formats (any format supported by DCRaw). UFRaw can be used on its own or as a Gimp plug-in.
Swiss army knife of image processing
GraphicsMagick provides a set of commandline tools and programming APIs for manipulating, editing, and converting raster and vector images. It is derived from ImageMagick, with the objective of providing better stability and performance than ImageMagick while retaining the original MIT/X11 license.
Open Source Solid Modeling CAD
BRL-CAD is a powerful cross-platform constructive solid geometry solid modeling system that includes an interactive geometry editor, ray-tracing for rendering & geometric analyses, network distributed framebuffer support, image & signal-processing tools.
FreeImage is a library project for developers who would like to support popular graphics image formats (PNG, JPEG, TIFF, BMP and others). Some highlights are: extremely simple in use, not limited to the local PC (unique FreeImageIO) and Plugin driven!
Complete solution for HDR photography
Luminance HDR is a complete suite for HDR imaging workflow. It provides a wide range of functionalities, during both the fusion stage and the tonemapping stage. Its graphical user interface, based on Qt5, runs on a variety of platforms, such as Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X 10.9 and later and several Unix flavors (Linux, FreeBSD and others). Input images can be supplied in multiple formats, from JPEG to RAW files. In the same way, output can be saved in many different formats as well, from JPEG to TIFF (both 8 bit and 16 bit per channel), enabling all the power of your post processing tools.
pngcrush and other tools for manipulating PNG (Portable Network Graphics) and MNG (Multiple-image Network Graphics) files.
Creates APNG animation from PNG/TGA image sequence.
Creates highly optimized Animated PNG files from PNG/TGA image sequences. CLI versions available for all major OSes. GUI versions for Windows and macOS. Also, APNG Disassembler can be found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/apngdis
A full featured cross-platform image library
Developer's Image Library (DevIL) is a cross-platform image library utilizing a simple syntax to load, save, convert, manipulate, filter and display a variety of images with ease.
The Animated Portable Network Graphics (APNG) is an unofficial extension of the Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format. APNG patch provides APNG support to libpng.
A whole bunch of utilities for primitive manipulation of graphic images. Wide array of converters from one graphics format to another. E.g. from g3 fax format to jpeg. Many basic graphics editing tools such as magnifying and cropping.
Welcome to AutoTrace - a program for converting bitmap to vector graphics. The aim of the AutoTrace project is the development of a freely available application similar to CorelTrace or Adobe Streamline. I hope that it will be better than all commercial
Create PDF from JPEG scans and photos
Cross-platform command-line tool for creation of PDF documents from scans/photos of pages in JPEG (.jpg) format and the lightest weight ANSI C library to put multiple JPEG files into one PDF file. You can add handwritten comments to PDF scans (over original images) with xournal: http://xournal.sourceforge.net/ It supports graphics tablets and saves comments to PDFs as vector data.
Transforms bitmaps into vector graphics
Potrace is a tool for tracing a bitmap, which means, transforming a bitmap into a smooth, scalable image. A typical use is to create SVG or PDF files from scanned data. The resulting image can then be rendered at any resolution.
a medical image conversion utility & library; hereby hoping to lower at least one barrier in medical research projects.
Converter of various scalable font formats (most notably TTF) and of the bitmapped BDF format into PostScript Type 1 fonts and metrics (.pfa, .pfb, .afm).
Convert APNG animations into animated GIF format.
This program converts APNG animations into animated GIF format. Wu64 quantization is used for true-color files. Transparency is handled either using a threshold, or composed over chosen background color. CLI version is OS-independent, GUI version is available for Windows. Another converter: http://sourceforge.net/projects/gif2apng
LProf is an open source color profiler that creates ICC compliant profiles for devices such as cameras, scanners and monitors. Origanally authored by Marti Maria the creator of LCMS. Marti has graciously consented to the creation of this project.
Convert GIF animations into APNG format.
This program converts GIF animations into animated PNG format. Usually it makes the files smaller. CLI version is OS-independent, GUI version is available for Windows. Another converter: http://sourceforge.net/projects/apng2gif
