  Features: Batch conversion, image preview, command-line configuration,
            contact sheet creation, slide shows.
  Comments: I am impressed with the large number of file formats
            supported, including all of their eccentric variations, and
            several formats I have not seen supported in other packages.
            The DOS file directory navigation and maintenance features are
            easy to use and the command line usage is very convenient,
            especially for batch format conversions of images.

  Name:     GIFBLAST - Lossless GIF file compressor
            See GIFBLAST entry in the "Image Conversion and Display Programs
            for Unix and X Window" section.

  Name:     GIFLITE
  Purpose:  Lossy GIF file reencoder
  Version:  1.00 (Shareware)
  Author:   Mr. Tsung Hu <72070.3515@compuserve.com>
            P.O.Box 938, Unit 105, St. Catharines, Ontario, L2R 6Z4 Canada
  FTP:      ftp://ftp.wustl.edu/systems/ibmpc/garbo.uwasa.fi/gifutil/
  Imports:  GIF

            file size. Reencoded files are readable by GIF file viewers and
            conform to GIF87a or GIF89a format specifcation. Three levels
            of compression. Dithered images, and images with fewer than 16
            colors, do not compress well.

            configuration.  Includes 5000+ lines of hypertext help
            and prints 98 page cross referenced manual.  Supports HGC,
            CGA, EGA, S-EGA, VGA, SVGA, XGA, TIGA and VESA. Registered

  Name:     pbmplus - Portable Bitmap Utilities (MS-DOS version)
  Purpose:  Graphical file format conversion

  Name:     NView
  Purpose:  Graphics file viewer
  Version:  1.5
  Author:   Jacques Nomssi Nzali <nomssi@physik.tu-chemnitz.de>
  FTP:      ftp://oak.oakland.edu/SimTel/msdos/graphics/

  Name:     PICTOPS
  Purpose:  PICture TO PostScript file compressor
  Version:  4.02 (Shareware)
  Author:   Mr. Igor L. Vassiliev <vasiliev_i@mx.ihep.su>
  FTP:      ftp://ftp.simtel.net/pub/simtelnet/msdos/graphics/magps402.zip
            ftp://ftp.uniovi.es/pub1/msdos/graphics/
            ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/pc/graphics/
  WWW:      http://www.simtel.net/pub/simtelnet/msdos/graphics/magps402.zip
  Imports:  BMP, GIF, ICO, PCX, PBM, PGM, PPM, RLE, TGA, TIF
  Exports:  Compressed PostScript within Level 2 & 1
  Features: PICTOPS V4.02 is powerful conversion program that converts
            1-,2-,4-,8-,24-, and 32-bit image files to color, gray scale,
            and bi-level PostScript file format. Analogous programs are
            unknown. PICTOPS will compress (PostScript interpreter
            will decompress) image data by CCITTFaxEncode, LZWEncode,
            RunLengthEncode and then by ASCII85Encode or ASCIIHexEncode
            filters. Creation of both ASCII(85) and binary PostScript file.
            PostScript color features support simple 5-operand form
            of the image, 7-operand form colorimage, and image dictionaries.
            CMYK images will be translated to RGB images. PostScript image 
            source data may be provided by string, procedure, or filter.
  Comments: Output from PICTOPS may have much smaller size than standard
            PostScript outs from other programs with simply Level-1.
            In most cases, PKZIP or ARJ cannot compress PostScript out from
            PICTOPS more than 5-20%. If the PostScript device has no
            implementation of level 2, then the program will be run
            as level 1.

  Name:     TN-Image
  Purpose:  Image analysis software
  Version:  2.09 (Shareware)
  Author:   tjnelson@helix.nih.gov

            bytes; all pixel depths from 1-32 bits/pixel, including CMYL, 
            medical grayscale images, and unusual color formats.
  Exports:  TIF, PCX, JPEG, TGA, BMP, IMG, and custom file formats. Saves 
            images in 1-32 bits/pixel as RGB, pseudocolor, CMYK, or grayscale.
            FFT data can be saved in ASCII format.
  Features: Menu driven GUI interface, many image editing operations, and
            analysis features (calibration, strip/spot densitometry, area and
            distance measurement, automatic background subtraction, 2D FFT,
            image reconstruction using Fourier convolution and deconvolution, 
            automatic detection and quantitation of bands, spots, rectangular 
            areas and arbitrarily-shaped regions, and user-definable equations 
            for point manipulation). Programmable macro language, batch mode, 
            image inter-conversion. Tutorials for deconvolution, densitometry,
