I haven't actually checked code quality or PD-ness of this one:
| Date: Tue, 1 Nov 94 17:49:50 GMT | From: "S. A. J. Winder" <email@example.com> | Organization: Bath University Computing Group | Subject: SHAREWARE: New Image Processing Toolset | | IMG* Image Processing Toolset and C Library | | Version 1.0 (Oct 1994)
| Announcing the availability of a new public domain image processing | environment developed at Bath University: The ImgStar toolset. | | *** Features: | * Seventy tools, including edge operators, space and Fourier domain | filtering, differential operators, sequence handling etc. | * Allows multiple images or sequences to be processed using one | | command-line. | * Developed to complement the well known PBMPLUS tools. | * Full 80 page postscript documentation. | * Only 3.5Mbytes - small enough to accompany any existing image | processing environment. | * Compatible with popular image file formats. | * Easily expandable using the accompanying C library. | * Developed and tested over two years on SGI and Sun UNIX platforms. |
| *** Description: | | The ImgStar Image Processing Tools are intended as a complete | environment for image processing to compliment Jef Poskanzer's PBMPLUS | toolkit which mostly provides conversion between different standard | file formats. All 70 ImgStar tools use a similar UNIX command line | invocation style and images are piped between operators, each of which | provides some filtering transformation. A floating point image format | is introduced in order to allow image processing operations to be | cascaded usefully. Conversion tools are included to convert between | this and the PBM-type formats. | | In addition to the processing of single images, all the ImgStar tools | include support for sequential processing of multiple images from a | single command line. This is useful when similar operations need to be | applied to many images such as the analysis of motion sequences. A | comprehensive set of sequence handling tools allows many useful | processing schemes to be created with a minimum number of commands. |
| *** How to obtain it: | | Version 1.0 of the package is now available by anonymous ftp from | axiom.maths.bath.ac.uk (220.127.116.11) as file "imgstar.tar.Z" in | directory "/pub/imgstar". | | Further information is available by World Wide Web from: | | http://www.bath.ac.uk/~mapsajw/imgstar.html | | This also provides a convenient way of downloading the package. | | Simon A.J.

SGI computers ship with a 4Dgifts set of PD image hacking tools, mostly by Paul Haeberli.
