EGSShow 1.2 - GIF, JPEG and IFF viewer for the EGS window system
Dietmar Heidrich firstname.lastname@example.org
This software uses JPEG code from The Independant JPEG Group Version 5 and
the GIF decoder written by Steven A. Bennett. IFF ILBM support by Dietmar
EGSShow is a viewing program for GIF, JPEG and IFF files on the EGS window
system. This program is able to read the JPEG format as well as the GIF
formats GIF87a, GIF89a and all future GIF files compatible with both of
the above as well as valid IFF ILBM files, including EHB, HAM6, HAM8 and
IFF24. The format of the file is detected automatically.
EGSShow needs a lot of memory for bigger pictures ( > 640 x 480) and EGS
version 6 or higher. Selecting a lower colour depth than 24 bit for the
EGS default screen will save you lots of memory.
Enhanced Graphics System Version 6 or higher.
EGS, the Enhanced Graphics System, is a high-performance 24 bit true
colour window system for the Commodore Amiga computers. It's the first
system that brings 24 bit drawing capabilities to the Amiga. A demo EGS
version for the native Amiga chipset is available on AmiNet. EGS is
available for almost all Amiga graphics boards, among them EGS Spectrum,
Piccolo, Piccolo SD64 and EGS 110.
The main difference of version 1.2 to version 1.11 is speed. GIF was sped
up by 20%. IFF was sped up by 30%. JPEG was sped up by 45%. There is a new
submenu for the JPEG mode which lets you select various output size
scalings. Grayscale JPEGs now work.
