View APNG images via Java
Build your own Java apps to View APNG image files using server-side APIs
How to View APNG images Using Java
We often receive images in less common formats as source materials. For subsequent viewing of such images, special programs are required. In order not to think about this problem and use the time to solve the issue for more creative tasks, use the functions of the Java graphic library. By converting such images to files of more popular formats, you can open them in the standard image viewing program for your platform. In order to view APNG files, we’ll use Aspose.Imaging for Java API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use image manipulation and conversion API for Java platform. You can download its latest version directly from Maven and install it within your Maven-based project by adding the following configurations to the pom.xml.
<name>Aspose Java API</name>
<version>version of aspose-imaging API</version>
Steps to View APNG via Java
You need the aspose-imaging-version-jdk16.jar to try the following workflow in your own environment.
- load APNG files with Image.Load method;
- create image view;
- save new image to disc in the supported by Aspose.Imaging format.
Aspose.Imaging for Java is supported on all major operating systems. Just make sure that you have the following prerequisites.
- JDK 1.6 or higher is installed.

About Aspose.Imaging for Java APIAspose.Imaging API is an image processing solution to create, modify, draw or convert images (photos) within applications. It offers: cross-platform Image processing, including but not limited to conversions between various image formats (including uniform multi-page or multi-frame image processing), modifications such as drawing, working with graphic primitives, transformations (resize, crop, flip&rotate, binarization, grayscale, adjust), advanced image manipulation features (filtering, dithering, masking, deskewing), and memory optimization strategies. It’s a standalone library and does not depend on any software for image operations. One can easily add high-performance image conversion features with native APIs within projects. These are 100% private on-premise APIs and images are processed at your servers.
APNG What is APNG File Format
A file with .apng (Animated Portable Network Graphics) extension is a raster graphic format and is an unofficial extension to the Portable Network Graphic (PNG ). It comprises of multiple frames (each of PNG image) that represents an animation sequence. This gives similar visualization as a GIF file. APNG files support 24-bit images and 8-bit transparency. APNG is backward compatible with non-animated GIF files. APNG files use the same .png extension and can be opened by applications such as Mozilla Firefox, Chrome with APNG support, iMessage apps for iOS 10.Read More
