the XAMPP is a very great project!!
i suggests add ImageMagick (www.ImageMagick.org ) function in the next version.
ImageMagickTM 6.1.8 is a robust collection of tools and libraries to read, write, and manipulate an image in many image formats (over 90 major formats) including popular formats like TIFF, JPEG, PNG, PDF, PhotoCD, and GIF. With ImageMagick you can create images dynamically, making it suitable for Web applications. You can also resize, rotate, sharpen, color reduce, or add special effects to an image or image sequence and save your completed work in the same or differing image format. Image processing operations are available from the command line, or from the C, C++, Perl, Java, PHP, Python, or Ruby programming languages. A high-quality 2D renderer is included, which provides a subset of SVG capabilities. ImageMagick's focus is on performance, minimizing bugs, and providing stable APIs and ABIs.
Here are just a few examples of what ImageMagick can do:
Convert an image from one format to another (e.g. TIFF to JPEG)
Resize, rotate, sharpen, color reduce, or add special effects to an image
Create a montage of image thumbnails
Create a transparent image suitable for use on the Web
Turn a group of images into a GIF animation sequence
Create a composite image by combining several separate images
Draw shapes or text on an image
Decorate an image with a border or frame
Describe the format and characteristics of an image
