DESCRIPTION

   A picture management software for all Amigas (and Draco) feat.
   TrueColor support (thumbnails and picture windows) under
   CyberGraphX or reduced color output on AGA Amigas.

   This program supports many picture formats, allows combinable
   subtitles under thumbnails, can open multiple picture windows
   (incl. scrolling and zooming functions) etc.

   If you have a suitable graphic board with CyberGraphX WB
   emulation installed you can watch the pictures and thumbnails in full
   color quality (HiColor/TrueColor) on your Workbench or a
   private screen. Without CyberGraphX the normal color restrictions
   (2 to 256 colors) will lead to a reduced quality.

   Additional features include conversion to some 24Bit formats
   (incl. JPeg, IFF-ILBM24, Targa), picture deletion etc.

   Internally supported formats for loading:

   1) IFF-ILBM (1 to 24Bit incl. HAM6/HAM8)
   2) PhotoCD (Base format 768x512 or 512x768 (portrait))
   3) JPeg (color and greyscale)
   4) PPM/PGM/PBM (P1&P4 b&w, P5 grey, P6 color)
   5) QRT (also known as dump format by PD raytracers as POV-Ray)
   6) Targa
   7) PCX
   8) BMP
   9) TIF (packbit-compr./uncompr.)
   10) DEEP
   11) YUV
   12) VLAB raw
   13) RGB
   14) HHsYUVSq sequence format
   15) IFF-PBM (DPII)
   16) ACBM
   17) FBM
   18) Sun raster (uncompressed)
   19) MacPaint (b&w compressed 1Bit format; datafork only)
   20) HHsXRL formats
   21) binary-EPS bitmaps (RGB and CMYK)
   22) TBCPlus frames/fields

   The additional DataType support extends this list by many
   formats; DataTypes can e.g. be found on Aminet in util/DType.
   The DataType support is very fast, so that you can also view
   pictures in GIF or other formats quite fast for which Datatypes exist.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

   OS3.0 or higher required
   4MBytes FastRAM at least recommended

   Optional for TrueColor/HighColor viewing:
     cybergraphics.library V40 or higher and a suitable graphic board or Draco.
     The CyberGraphX emulation is compatible with many graphic boards
     (e.g. CyberVision, Piccolo, SD64, Spectrum, Picasso2, Retina-Z3,
           Domino and Draco/Altais)
