There are many approaches you can take. Depends on what level of
reusability of your components you want to achieve and details of input
format (never seen NewsML...).

If input is XML with data and images intermixed, use fragment extractor.

If input is XML, one way is to write serializer which takes input XML
with base64 encoded image and outputs image. It can also convert image
from tiff to png (using some Java image manipulation library).

If input is not XML, then you should write reader, which will read
base64, decode it, and write image as output (converting as necessary).
