- Smart disk undo (up to 99 undo levels !)
- Color print under NVDI or Speedo GDOS
But VISION is also much much better:
Real Time Zoom
Very fast, very useful and fully parametrable, it allows you an accuracy you never dare to imagine !
You always wanted a good slide-show ? Here it is ! The album allows you to generate a slide-show file with criterias you want !
Remember last time you were searching an image on a set of 1500 ? For VISION, each image can have up to three criterias on a set of 32 ! Smart filters then allow you to find in one click the losen image. One can also visualize its images in a window.
Getting nervous with all these BMP files needing more and more space on you disk ? Just convert all to TIFF with LZW compression ! Just select the folders and the masks you want to apply on files and go !
Never lost in VISION dialogs: wonderful help bubbles gives you all the information you need on the option you are staring at !
Just for fun : the Red-Green-Blue components of an image
Yeah ! Just like ACDSee ! Watch every images in a folder you want in a very simple way !
68000 / 68030 Optimizations
VISION's code includes some very powerful 68000 and 68030 optimizations Some examples:
LZW (GIF / TIFF) compression
Grey level dithering (256 --> 16 colors) and True Color --> 256 colors
Filtrering (using DSP on FALCON)
ATARI Bitplanes to index transformations
Hey ! Where are the prices ? Here they are :
