"LEAD Technologies, Inc., a LEADing provider of imaging developer toolkits worldwide, announces the release of LEADTOOLS Imaging for Linux, an imaging developer toolkit for the Linux operating system."

"LEADTOOLS Imaging for Linux is built directly upon Xlib, which offers developers more flexibility, greater speed and ease in development, and independence of graphical interface. LEAD's years of experience in imaging development have translated to a Linux imaging toolkit that provides developers with better imaging solutions."

"LEAD has specifically included unique viewing and painting options in their paint bitmap functions for Linux, solving painting (displaying the image) problems inherent to the Linux operating system. Off-Screen image manipulation (on images which reside in memory or files) is also supported. Developers can choose to let the LEAD paint function map the image palette to the Linux system palette avoiding unwanted color shifts in other applications. Using the LEAD dithering and converting functions, developers can paint any image with any bits/pixel in any screen depth, with no change to the image."
