This set of tools is loaded with features worth mentioning since they are so small and powerful.
Some of these features I have seen in higher-end graphics programs like Adobe's line of products.
With libAfterImage, you'll find support for:
- Antialiased TrueType and X text
- In-memory RLE image compression
- High-quality image scaling
- Flipping and blending
- Multi-point linear gradients including a 128-bit graphics engine
libAfterImage also includes an optional inline MMX assembly and input filters for over 11 popular file formats, including the fastest import of XPM images and GIMP XCF.
