ImgView uses a modular approach so it can support future image formats. Some plugins have the ability to save images. The plugins can be used by other applications. Developer documentation included.

A good example is WebP which I was able to bring to the Atari ST as a plugin. Many of my plugins are for obscure formats you may never encounter. Some are quite rare. ;o)

ImgView v1.16 (68K/V4E)
Image viewer with extra features
No plugins included
Plugin Pack v1.04 (68K/V4E)
Supports JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF, WebP
Nearly all native Atari formats ever made, and more...
ThingImg v1.02 (68K/V4E)
Desktop background overlay for Thing Desktop
Supports all plugin file types
Auto dithers/remaps images to the desktop palette
Requires NVDI v5.03
NVDI v5 palette recommended for best results
ThingRND v1.00 (68K)
Selects random desktop background at boot
Only works with Thing Desktop (caching supported)
Currently, only tested with NAES.

ImgView requirements:

ImgView might be the first application written utilizing the full potential of NVDI 5 for dithering, scaling, and transforming images on the fly. :oD
If I'm wrong please correct me.

Online documentation: IMG_MOD.HYP (possibly outdated)

Contact me if you have a problem with a plugin or and idea for a new one. I need a copy of the image causing the issue.

Other apps that support plugins:

Old stuff (no longer supported):
Image Codec Pack (LDG/SLB) v1.05 (68K/V4E)
Memory leak in LDG.PRG is unacceptable and SLB's with callbacks are overly complicated in GFA. Lost interest in both codec formats.

To comply with zView lisence agreement, modified codec (*.ldg) source code can be downloaded.
Modified codec (*.im) source code can be downloaded.

Given the same desktop palette in 256 colors, left is zView, right is ImgView:
