8bf filter host for .NET

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 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.
