Welcome to the ImageManipulation[1]Local Service

ImageManipulation is a Java servlet that takes a URL of an image as a parameter and, based on other given parameters, can perform a variety of image related manipulations on the object. After the image is manipulated, it is then sent back as an image/type object to the calling parent, most often a browser or an HTML img tag.
