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 a RunFilter overload to allow the host to show the filters user interface initialized from the FilterParameters property.
Added support for searching shortcuts to folders.
This package has no dependencies.
