pdfRender: WEBP format support added

In our iText 7.1.14 release we've added support for the WEBP image format to pdfRender 1.0.3. This is a modern image format which employs both lossy and lossless compression, and typically produces smaller images than JPEG or PNG at equivalent quality settings.


import com.itextpdf.licensekey.LicenseKey;
import com.itextpdf.pdfrender.PdfRenderImageType;
import com.itextpdf.pdfrender.PdfToImageRenderer;
import com.itextpdf.pdfrender.RenderingProperties;

public class WEBP_Example {
    public static final String DEST = "results/result";
    public static final String SRC = "src/main/resources/simple.pdf";
    private static final String KEY = "src/main/resources/itextkey_pdfRender.xml";

    static {
        new File(DEST).getParentFile().mkdirs();

    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
        RenderingProperties properties = new RenderingProperties();

        // Render PDF to images
        PdfToImageRenderer.renderPdf(new File(SRC), DEST, properties, null, null);

We do not currently have a pdfRender .NET library available, however we do have a CLI (command line interface) version which will work with multiple programming languages (including C# for .NET).
For more information regarding the pdfRender CLI please refer to our FAQ.
