DESCRIPTION
    ImageStudio is an image processor written for the casual
    graphics user who wishes to convert or manipulate various
    graphics formats on a modest Amiga system. The program
    tries to cover the most commonly performed operations
    like colour reduction, scaling and dithering in an easy
    to use Workbench2 style interface. Most of the commonly
    used file formats can be loaded or saved.

    Image processing, by its very nature, requires large amounts
    of RAM - ImageStudio includes its own virtual memory manager
    which works on any Amiga to reduce the amount of RAM required.
    A powerful ARexx interface is also included which has been
    made easy to use by allowing the user to develop new scripts
    entirely within ImageStudio.

    * Virtual memory
    * Fully featured, easy to use, ARexx interface.
    * Upto 100 levels of undo / redo
    * Loads / saves IFF-ILBM (palette based upto 256 colours,
    HAM6, HAM8, extra halfbright), IFF-DEEP, GIF, BMP, PCX, JPEG,
    TIFF, Targa, SGI, PNM (PBM, PGM, PPM), QRT, EPS, datatypes.
    * Adjust colour balance (brightness, contrast and gamma).

    * Requires no third party libraries or utilities.
