So, you're trying to share some files with someone who only has access to an old version of Word. Or maybe that Microsoft-hating friend of yours who only uses WordPerfect. Perhaps you want that old-school ebook to be an epub, rather than .lit. For any of these problems, there are desktop apps that work, of course. However, sometimes you want to be able to do that within a program. If so, Doxument and the beautiful Doxument API are what you need.
How many companies that sprouted in 1724 can boast of an API launch in 2012? Pearson, now in its 288th year, has announced its 7th API. Pearson, continually finding value in the API method of market strategy, expanded its resources available via API with the dkimages API. The latest in Pearson's API lineup consists of "an encyclopaedic collection of 90,000 high-resolution images, ready to [integrate, and range from] classic whilte background shots to in-situ images." The API allows developers to integrate the collection with existing apps through purchasing, listing, viewing, or searching for images.
