NEW VERSION 1.5 OF LEADTOOLS(TM)/32 ADDS SPEED, DOCUMENT IMAGE HANDLING SUPPORT TO TOOLKIT FOR 32-BIT PROTECTED-MODE DOS IMAGE APPLICATION DEVELOPERS

 CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- LEAD Technologies, Inc., updates its performance-leading software for DOS 32-bit protected-mode C language image application developers to add support for 1-bit document image files, more speed, more compression standards and more format conversions. New LEADTOOLS(TM)/32 version 1.5 is available for $995 (all prices suggested U.S. resale at participating resellers; inquiries invited).
 LEADTOOLS/32 lets software-only applications perform at speeds that once required hardware accelerators. It includes a palette editor and image manipulation features (flip, rotate, reverse, lighten, darken, resize). And its many image file format conversions cover more "flavors" of the alleged standards, making conversion failures all but extinct.
 For scanned or fax document applications, it offers special 1-bit CCITT Group III and IV (fax standard) file handling and greatly enhanced document image file compression. It also handles all popular image file formats: TGA (8-bit grey scale, 8-bit color map, 16/24/32-bit color), PCX (8-bit grey scale, 8-bit color map), GIF (8-bit grey scale, 8-bit color map), TIFF (8-bit grey scale, 8-bit color map, 24-bit color), BMP (Windows and Presentation Manager 4/8-bit color map, 24-bit color), JFF (JPEG JFIF File Interchange Format, which extends as JPG), JTF (JPEG TIF) and CMP (proprietary LEAD Technologies format) files. It can perform compressions using either of two (JFIF and JTIF) JPEG-compliant methods, but its own CMP extended compression file format delivers much smaller file sizes and far superior restored image quality.
 LEAD Technologies provides end-user and developer software for image applications. Among these applications: image databases, multimedia, desktop publishing, graphic design, graphic arts, military, photographic, micrographic, medical, surveillance, quality control, real estate and mor
