This library allows applications built with .NET 2.0 and later to run 3rd party Adobe® Photoshop® compatible filters.
Either 32-bit or 64-bit filters will be used depending on the processor architecture of the host process.
For 32-bit hosts the C# compiler enables Data Execution Prevention for the process, as many filters are not compatible with it you should use editbin or a similar tool to clear the IMAGE_DLLCHARACTERISTICS_NX_COMPAT flag
(see http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ed_maurer/archive/2007/12/14/nxcompat-and-the-c-compiler.aspx for more details).
When using .NET 3.0 and later 8-bit and 16-bit Grayscale and RGB(A) images can be processed using WIC.
The .NET 2.0 version uses GDIPlus which does not support 16-bit data and processes images as 32-bit ARGB.
An example project demonstrating how the use the library is available as part of the source code on the project downloads page.
Added an EnumerateFilters method to the PSFilterHost class.
Fixed a bug with the SupportsImageMode method and PiMI resources.
Multiple issues with meta data handling, and various other bugs fixed.
This package has no dependencies.
