Looking for an update on the latest improvement and enhancements to Aspose.Imaging Cloud 19.7? This post will get you familiar with what has been added to the new release of Aspose.Imaging Cloud.

We continue to improve our API; in this release, we have added some new features along with the fixes of the issues reported in previous versions of the API, which make it the first choice of developers to meet all of the modern image processing requirements. We have introduced OTG (OpenDocument graphics template) file format support, a new SDK for Python and many fixes those improved PSD to PDF conversion, EMF to PNG and many other notable improvements. Please check the release notes of this version for a complete list of improvements and fixes.

Let’s give you a preview of new features along with sample code.

How to Manipulate OTG (OpenOffice Graphic Template)

Aspose.Imaging Cloud supports almost all industry standard image formats. With this release, we extend the list to OTG file format, OpenOffice Graphic Template created using the OASIS OpenDocument standard. That contains the default layout and drawing information for a vector graphic; stored in a file package using XML formatting. OTG files can be used as a starting point for creating multiple ODG drawings in OpenDocument-compatible programs, such as Apache OpenOffice (formerly OpenOffice.org).

Now, OTG image cropping, resizing, rotation, flipping and updating tasks can be accomplished with a simple set of HTTP requests in your application. Currently it supports to convert OTG file format to BMP, GIF, JPEG, JPEG2000, PSD, TIFF, WEBP, PNG and PDF.

Let’s demonstrate you how easily you can convert OTG to BMP using Aspose.Imaging Cloud API. We are using cURL command for the purpose, however, you can also use Aspose.Imaging Cloud SDK of your choice. Please refer to the complete list of available SDKs to use Aspose.Imaging Cloud API directly in your favorite platform.

Image Manipulation in Python

While working with Python, you would be looking for a reliable API for image manipulation in your application. Aspose has solved this problem. We have introduced Aspose.Imaging Cloud SDK for Python for its Python developers, that allows them to work with Aspose.Imaging Cloud REST APIs in Python based platform quickly and easily, gaining all benefits of strong types and IDE highlights. It is a wrapper around REST APIs and supports all the features introduced in Aspose.Imaging Cloud API without worrying about the underlying REST API calls. The distribution is available at GitHub with numerous API test cases provided in this SDK to understand the Cloud API working and implementation of its features. It supports Python 2.7 and later versions.


You can get complete source code of the SDK from GitHub repository. Moreover, Aspose.Imaging Cloud SDK for Python is also available as released package in the PyPI (Python Package Index). You can bypass the source code repository and depend directly on the released package by installing from PyPI:

pip install aspose-imaging-cloud

Getting Started

Once you are done with installation of packages and dependencies in your project, you can easily call the API in your Python based code to consume the API features. Here is the sample code to demonstrate the working of Aspose.Imaging Cloud API using Python SDK. Please follow the installation procedure and then run the following Python code:
