 RNOEffects is a simple image processing program with a focus on good batch
 conversion options, alpha channel based effects, and pixel editing.


 - Around 30 different image processing effects including drop shadows,
   elliptical crop, and other effects that would need several steps for other
   similar programs
 - Drawing options for brushes, text, lines, ellipses, boxes, and arrows
 - Batch converter and image joining/combining tools
 - All effects can be applied to images in a freely selectable order in a
   batch conversion or image joining/combining process
 - Unlimited number of images can be joined into a single image
 - Built-in pixel editor with configurable drawing options for left, middle,
   and right mouse buttons
 - Supports saving to PNG, JPEG, JPEG2000 (JP2/J2K), GIF, ILBM, BMP, TIFF
   (Flate/JPEG), and all Amiga icon formats
 - Supports both RGB and Palette modes for saving
 - Can save and use custom palettes
 - Can save images as chunky data
 - Chunky images and palettes can be saved as C source code
 - Can save multiple images as a single PDF or video file
 - ARexx support

 Copy the whole directory anywhere you want and just launch the program


 - Next and previous images in a directory can be loaded by pressing the
   up/down arrow keys or PageUp/PageDown keys.
 - Use the left arrow key for Undo and the right arrow key for the Redo.
 - Function keys can be used to save an image as an RGB or Palette (P) format:
   F1=PNG, F2=JPG, F3=BMP, F4=IFF, F5=PNG(P), F6=GIF(P), F7=BMP(P), F8=IFF(P),
   F9=Icon F10=Palette (IFF/ILBM), F11=Palette (RGB32), F12=Chunky(P)
 - The Space Bar key pauses the Color Picker tool
 - Crop and Draw effect positioning can be set with a mouse press over an image
 - The Keep mode (in the cycle gadet at the top right corner) retains the
   main window size even if the content resolution changes.
 - The Undo/Redo buffer requires quite a lot of memory, so Undo levels are set
   to a minimum for the OS3 version, but can be altered from the Settings menu.
 - The Background effect draws into transparent areas of an image. Transparency
   is indicated by displaying the checkered pattern in the program.
 - The Alpha option in the Draw effect allows an effect to draw into an image's
   alpha channel instead of the colour channel. It can be used to add or remove
   transparency in images, such as, to make a part of an image see-through.
 - Multiple effects can be applied to each image in a batch conversion process
   when joining/combining images, or when creating a selected state image for
   an icon. In all cases the order of the applied effects can be changed from
   the Batch Convert window.
 - Some icon formats have fall-back image(s) in the original AmigaOS icon
   format. These fall-back icons are created automatically by the program.
   All icon images (frames) can be previewed in the Icon options window.
 - When opening an icon file with multiple images (states) in it, a custom
   requester appears to allow you to choose the image in the icon you want to
   load. The "Auto" option in the requester loads the normal unselected state
   image as the main image in the program, but also loads the selected state
   image in the internal buffer.
 - To save a dual-state icon, open the Icon options window (Save as/Icon (F9)).
   The image in the main window is used as the normal unselected state of your
   icon, but its Selected state is defined with the "Selected" options. The
   "Selected" state image can be created on-the-fly from the main image by
   applying any custom effects to it (have your effects windows ready), or by
   loading a selected image from a file, or by using an image in the internal
   buffer. More detailed descriptions are in help bubbles that pop-up for
   related gadgets.
 - Properties of a loaded icon file are used via the Icon options window if the
   "Load icon properties" setting is enabled.
 - The program can store an image within the system's clipboard, but may not
   preserve transparency information on all systems. The program's internal
   buffer stores an exact copy of an image, so is better for internal use.
 - Pixel editor drawing modes:
   Mix w/original . . . - Pixels are mixed with the original (applied) image
   Mix w/current  . . . - Pixels are mixed with the current pixel editor image
   Color + trans  . . . - Both colour and transparency values are replaced
   Color  . . . . . . . - Colour is replaced, but transparency is preserved
   Transparency . . . . - Transparency is replaced, but colour is preserved
   Flood color  . . . . - Flood fill similarly coloured areas with a new colour
   Flood trans on col . - Alter transparency of similarly coloured areas
   Flood trans on trans - Alter transparency of areas with same transparency
   Copy from (X/Y)  . . - Copy related pixel values from another location


 RNOEffects uses non-standard command line arguments. Arguments must be given
 in the form of (note the "-" prefix): -argument parameter

 Allowed arguments:
 -file <file>  . . . . - Opens a picture file at startup
 -defdir <dir> . . . . - Sets the initial directory to open files
 -args . . . . . . . . - Shows the allowed arguments

 RNOEffects -file "Work:Pics/Some picture.png"

 The same arguments can be used as icon tooltypes, by omitting the "-" prefix.



 Program's ARexx port is RNOEFFECTS.1 (and .2, .3 etc. for multiple instances)
 and supported commands are:

 LOAD <file> . . . . . . . . - Loads a new image
 NEXT  . . . . . . . . . . . - Loads the next image in the current directory
 PREV  . . . . . . . . . . . - Loads the previous image in the current dir
