For all supported image formats the GroupDocs.Metadata API allows extracting common image properties such as width and height, MIME type, byte order, etc. Please see the code snippet below for more information on the feature.

  1. Load an image
  2. Extract the root metadata package
  3. Use the getImageType method to obtain file format information


try (Metadata metadata = new Metadata(Constants.InputPng)) {
	ImageRootPackage root = metadata.getRootPackageGeneric();
