DESCRIPTION

Visage is a picture viewer for all Amigas with OS 3.0 or better.  The goal
is to have a rather fast viewer, with lots of features.  Picture quality is
not the most important thing.

Features include:

* Can display IFF ILBM, JPEG, PNG and datatype pictures.

* Full AA, ECS, CyberGraphX and RTG (I hope! ;) support.

* Supports PCHG (Palette CHanGe) and SHAM (Sliced HAM) IFF ILBM
  pictures.

* Can display "deep" pictures in all formats on ECS Amigas, rendered
  in HAM, "normal" color (graphics card recommended) or grayscale.

* Xpk support for IFF ILBM pictures.

* Can scale any rendered picture to fit the screen.

* Extensive monitor support. Uses a BestModeID()-like function to
  find a suitable mode (if needed).

* Several slideshow options, including a random and a sort mode,
  making Visage nice for use with screen blankers as an external
  module.

* Background loading of next picture while viewing the current, if
  there is enough memory (this can be disabled).

* Can read pictures from a named pipe.

NEW FEATURES

In 39.14:

  * Some bugs and quirks fixed.
