From Stream to BufferedImage

var metaImage = ImageResizer.getImageFromStream(fph.fileStream)

Remove alpha channel (Fix Transparency from PNG)

var metaImage = ImageResizer.removeAlphaChannel(metaImage)

Resize and rotate image

val img = ImageResizer.max(metaImage.orientation, metaImage.image, 800, 600)

Warning JPEG codec

OpenJDK does not have a native JPEG encoder, try using Sun's JDK, or using an external library like JAI.

Notes for module developers

Merge to master will trigger a Travis build and publish a SNAPSHOT (if the version is a -SNAPSHOT).
