Load Files in C#

Load PDF documents and images using C#. This is the first step in using the full potential of our library. Loading files to one of our custom classes allows you to perform different actions on those files. You can use different kind of sources, such as a local machine, a byte array, a stream object, or remote URLs.

Use the loading methods of the GdPicturePDF class to handle annotations, page labels, and other PDF-related functionalities. Loading an image to our GdPictureImaging class enables you to access different image format types, manipulate their content, draw new elements, and take full advantage of their metadata. If you want to convert files to different formats, use the loading methods of the GdPictureDocumentConverter class, which has the best performance for document conversion. The AnnotationManager class allows you to manage custom GdPicture and XMP annotations.
