It provides nearly 600 image file and image processing functions and is available both as
a DLL that can be used from almost any programming environment (including C/C++, VB,
C#, MC++, PowerBasic, Delphi, Access, and many more). It is also available in C/C++
static library form for use with C/C++ for Visual C++ 6.0, or Visual Studio (all versions 2003 and later).

ImgSource version 5.0
The latest and greatest version of ImgSource, expands on what ImgSource has always done well and adds many new features. Here a list of changes from v4.0.
There are a wide range of image processing libraries available: some are very expensive, some are totally free; some are very simple, some offer everything imaginable. How do you choose?
Because we want people to pay for ImgSource we need to ensure that there is a reason for them to pay. We need to be sure that bugs are fixed, that new functionality is added when there is demand and we need to ensure that people can use ImgSource to do what they need to do. In short, support. ImgSource has discussion boards, personalized email support, and almost constant updates. Functionailty is added at a pace that few can keep up with, bug fixes are almost instantaneous and, there is a community of developers who are already using ImgSource that can help you get started. We try to make ImgSource worth every bit of your registration cost, and we think we succeed.
ImgSource help file
You can download the ImgSource help file. This is an interactive help file that contains ImgSource function definitions and descriptions, sample code, articles, and more. The help file is also available in on line form.
As of version 5, all of the ISEffects functionality has been merged into ImgSource itself.
These libraries add support for more file formats. They are known as "ImgSource extension libraries", and are tightly integrated into ImgSource's source and destination manager system. These libraries require ImgSource 188.8.131.52 or higher.
Visual C++ source
You have the option to purchase the C/C++ source to ImgSource. Cost to purchase the full source to ImgSource is $100 in addition to the normal registration fee. The source code license is a 6 month license. During that time, you can download the source as often as you wish. After 6 months, you must purchase another source code license.
Projects for the following compilers are included in the source package: Visual C++ 6.0, Visual Studio 2003 - 2013.
Static library option
This library is also available as a set of C/C++ static .LIB files. (2 LIBs, release and debug). This is the same code that is in the ImgSource DLL. The .LIBs require the same key that the DLL does and the pricing is the same as for the DLL. Static library use requires that you have Visual C++ 6.0 (with SP 5), or Visual Studio 2003 and higher. x64 libraries are available for Visual Studio 2005 and higher. Be sure to download the correct libraries ! The libraries will only work for the compiler they were built for.
