Converting a CGM file to a PSD image in Java is a simple two-step process. The first step is to use the Aspose.PDF for Java API, which is part of the Aspose.Total for Java package, to export the CGM file to a JPEG image. The second step is to use the Aspose.Imaging for Java Image Processing API to render the JPEG image to a PSD image.
The Aspose.PDF for Java API is a powerful tool for creating, editing, and converting PDF documents. It can be used to convert CGM files to JPEG images with ease. The API supports a wide range of file formats, including CGM, and provides a range of features such as text extraction, page manipulation, and image extraction.
The Aspose.Imaging for Java Image Processing API is a powerful tool for manipulating images. It can be used to render JPEG images to PSD images with ease. The API supports a wide range of image formats, including JPEG and PSD, and provides a range of features such as image resizing, cropping, and color adjustment.
By using the Aspose.PDF for Java and Aspose.Imaging for Java APIs, you can easily convert CGM files to PSD images in Java. Both APIs are part of the Aspose.Total for Java package, which provides a comprehensive set of APIs for working with a wide range of file formats. With the help of these APIs, you can quickly and easily convert CGM files to PSD images in Java.
Export CGM to PSD via Java
Get Started with Java File Automation APIs
You can easily use Aspose.Total for Java directly from a Maven based project and include libraries in your pom.xml.
Alternatively, you can get a ZIP file from downloads .
Convert CGM to PSD in a Single File via Java
The API also allows you to export CGM file to PSD to a single file. In order to convert all pages, you can first render your CGM document to one TIFF file and after that, you can export the TIFF file to PSD. You can open the input file using Document class and create Resolution, TiffSettings, & TIFF device objects. You can get a single TIFF image using process method of TiffDevice class. Finally, you can load TIFF file using Image class and save it to PSD format using save method.
Convert CGM to PSD With Watermark via Java
Using the API, you can also export CGM file to PSD with watermark in your PSD document. In order to add a watermark to you can first convert CGM to JPEG and add a watermark in it. In order to add watermark, load an image file using the Image class, create an object of the Graphics class and initialize it with Image object, create a new Matrix object and set translation and transformation to the desired angle and add watermark using Graphics.drawString method. After adding the watermark in your image, you can save the JPEG as PSD format.
Convert & Rotate CGM to PSD File via Java
Using the API, you can also rotate the output PSD image as per your needs. The Image.rotateFlip method can be used to rotate the image by 90/180/270-degrees and flip the image horizontally or vertically. The library provides simple methods to perform complex operations while encapsulating all ugly details. You can specify the type of rotation and flip to apply to the image. In order to rotate and flip the image, you can load the converted JPEG image using the Image class and call the Image.rotateFlip method while specifying the appropriate RotateFlipType .

What is CGM File Format?
A Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM) is a file format for 2D vector graphics, raster graphics, and text, and is defined by ISO/IEC 8632. CGM files may contain 2D vector graphics, raster graphics, and text. All aspects of the graphics can be stored, including color palettes, line widths, fonts, and text size and location. CGM files usually have a .cgm filename extension, but they may also use .cgi, .cgmz, or .cgz.CGM is a platform-independent file format, meaning that it can be used on any type of computer, regardless of the operating system. CGM files are often used for vector graphics because they can be scaled without losing quality. CGM files are also used for technical drawings, such as engineering diagrams, because they can be accurately printed at any size.CGM files can be created by a wide variety of software programs, including vector graphics editors, CAD programs, and word processors. Many programs that can export to CGM format also support importing CGM files.
What is PSD File Format?
The PSD (Photoshop Document) file format is the default file format used by Adobe Photoshop, a popular software application for graphic design and image editing. PSD files are designed to store layered images, allowing users to work with multiple elements and effects on separate layers within a single file.
PSD files are characterized by their ability to preserve complex image data, including layers, masks, blending modes, transparency, and other advanced features. This makes them highly versatile and flexible for professional graphic designers and photographers who require precise control over their creative work.
In a PSD file, each layer can contain different image elements, such as text, shapes, filters, adjustment layers, and more. This layer-based approach allows for non-destructive editing, as users can modify individual layers without affecting the rest of the image. It also enables easy editing and manipulation of specific parts of an image.
The PSD file format supports high-quality color modes, such as RGB, CMYK, and grayscale, ensuring accurate representation of colors for various output purposes, including print and web.
In addition to Adobe Photoshop, many other image editing software applications can open and edit PSD files, although some advanced features may not be fully supported. However, to retain all the layer information and effects, it is recommended to work with PSD files in Adobe Photoshop.
When the editing process is complete, PSD files can be saved in other common image file formats, such as JPEG or PNG, for sharing or web display purposes. However, it’s important to note that converting a PSD file to another format may result in the loss of layer information and other advanced features.
