All,

Hi, folks! I just wanted to write a note saying how happy I was when I
grabbed Batik for the first time to convert SVG -> PNG for a project
I'm working on. My assumption going in was that my journey from
"Google java svg convert to png" to working code was going to end in
tears.

Not so.

Here's what I posted to the Mirth Connect Slack channel about 5
minutes after my visit to Google. (I had asked the group there if
anyone had any experience converting from SVG -> PNG and someone
off-handedly suggested Batik).

I can't be happier about the result, and I owe it to yet another (!)
Apache community.

MG>since chris is singing your praises

like JPEGImageWriter
MG>is batik a viable alternative for writing JPG classes with IIOMetadata?

Keep up the great work!

Thanks,
