Retrieve Raw Properties of Images

Set Locale for Aspose.PDF

Whenever an unrecognized locale is encountered, the standard behavior is to fallback to the parts of the locale that are recognized. This behavior is generally present in Java Applications. In order to deal with such scenarios where it is necessary to specify/set locale, a new method i.e. com.aspose.pdf.LocaleOptions.setLocale() has been added in the latest release of the API which can be used to set locale. Please note that The Aspose.PDF for Java library cannot support locales with specific combination language-country (such as “en-KR”) but, a new feature for setting the classical locale for Aspose.PDF has been implemented.
