GEMImageDT is a DataType for GEM image files, as used by GEM Paint and
several other packages. These are also known as IMG files, after the
file-name suffix usually used.

Supported format variations:

  - Atari ST images up to 256 colours.
  - Two-colour black and white images.
  - 16-colour PC images.
  - Greyscale PC images.

Unsupported format variations:

  - High-colour and true-colour images.
  - Images whose format version is greater than one (this affects some files
    originating from the Atari ST platform).

Note that, unlike most DataTypes, this one only accepts files with one of
the standard file extensions for this format (.IMG and .XIMG). This is
because there would be a high risk of misidentifying other files as GEM
image files if file extensions were ignored. However, it is not assumed that
all files with one of the valid extensions is a GEM image file.

Please send bug reports, suggestions, and any other correspondence to the
author address above.

This package is released under the GNU General Public Licence.
