DESCRIPTION

     Image Engineer is a shareware image processing application.  It
     can be used for tasks varying from converting images between
     different file formats, rendering 24 bit images down to standard
     Amiga screen modes, enhancing badly scanned images, applying
     special effects even up to advanced image composition.  What you
     can use it for is basically limited by what you can think of.


     - Very fast, coded in 100% 68020 assembler
     - Multiple image editing
     - Dithered Colour or grey preview images.
     - Zoom in preview images.
     - Processing done in 8 bit grey or 24 bit colour
     - ARexx support
     - Thumbnail previews shown for most effects.
     - Font sensitive, resizable GUI with keyboard shortcuts, using
       the BGUI Library.
     - User configurable menus.
     - Uses the Superview Library for loading and saving.  Superview
       currently supports:-

        BMP (Win,OS/2)       IFF-YUVN (misc)      PNM (*nix)
        C64 (Koala, Doodle)  IMG (GEM/V*nt*ra)    QRT/POV

        OS3-DataTypes        picture.datatype V43

     - Can display images using Superview Library. Superview Library
       currently supports ECS, AGA, EGS7, OpalVision, Retina,

     - Supports AGA where available.
     - Render images to standard Amiga screen modes including HAM6
       and HAM8.
     - Dither images using Floyd-Steinberg, Burkes, Stucki, Sierra,
       Jarvis and Stevenson-Arce error diffusion algorithms.
     - Image processing effect implemented as disk based modules.
       Modules exist for:-
