NetPbm for Windows

NetPbm: tools for manipulating images




Netpbm is a package of graphics programs and programming libraries. There are over 220 separate programs in the package, most of which have "pbm", "pgm", "ppm", or "pnm" in their names. For example, pnmscale and giftopnm. For example, you might use pnmscale to shrink an image by 10%. Or use pnmcomp to overlay one image on top of another. Or use pbmtext to create an image of text. Or reduce the number of colors in an image with ppmquant.



If you download the Setup program of the package, any requirements for running applications, such as dynamic link libraries (DLL's) from the dependencies as listed below under Requirements, are already included. If you download the package as Zip files, then you must download and install the dependencies zip file yourself. Developer files (header files and libraries) from other packages are however not included; so if you wish to develop your own applications, you must separately install the required packages.

Installation and Usage

Beginning with major version 10, NetPbm has only one dynamic link library (netpbm.dll) instead of 4 (pbm.dll, pnm.dll, pgm.dll, and ppm.dll). If a program needs any of the 4 old dll's, just copy netpbm.dll.
