Want to look better than your competition? Use JPEG2000!
You can integrate JPEG 2000 into your application in somewhat 15 minutes (well, maybe in half an hour ) by using J2K-Codec software component.
J2K-Codec is probably the easiest JPEG2000 decoder to use. With the special 1-Call shortcut functions and C++ wrapper classes, you don't need to read 20+ pages and figure out mysterious function parameters to start using it. And if you think that something is still not very clear or easy in J2K-Codec—please let us know! We do want to provide the most convenient way of working with JPEG2000 images.
