His

I am trying to convert a png image to tiff format (to ocr the text with http://code.google.com/p/tesseract-ocr/ than). searched the web and found the imageio package.
However, as shown at
http://www.java2s.com/Code/Java/2D-Graphics-GUI/ListAllreaderandwriterformatssupportedbyImageIO.htm
i tried running the code



to find out if tiff writer is available, and turns out to be not.

Using jdk 1.5, could anyone suggest how to add a writer and where to find a good one?

Thanks

You need the JAI ImageIO package: http://java.net/projects/jai-imageio/ (Note that this is different from JAI itself, which is not needed.)

In theory, ImageIO should pick up TIFF support automatically if you have it in the classpath, but I haven't gotten that to work. So you may need to register it in code:

That's all there is to it. The library also contains a GIF writer (which JDKs < 1.6 don't have), as well as RAW, PNM and JPEG2000 readers and writer, just in case you ever need those.

Thanks for the reply, it did help. Actually, the plugin was picked up automatically, so i did not need to make any extra api calls.
