Description : Image processing system good for very large images
VIPS is an image processing system designed with efficiency in mind.
It is good with large images (images larger than the amount of RAM in
your machine), and for working with colour. It can perform many
image manipulation tasks much faster than other packages such as
ImageMagick and the GIMP and includes some special features such as
creating single "mosaic" images from multiple parts.
VIPS consists of two main components: an image processing library
with some command-line tools, and a spreadsheet-like graphical user
interface, available in the nip package.
This package includes runtime libraries needed to run applications
linked with the vips library.
Please note: vips7.10 is in beta at the moment, but is nearing the end
of its beta period. I am the maintainer of vips7.8, which is the
older stable version. As of this writing, vips7.8 has been uploaded
as a new package but has not yet been added manually to the overrides
file and is therefore not yet in unstable. vips7.10 is not expected
to clear beta in time for Sarge.
The current version of vips7.10 is 7.10.3, but the version I actually
package will be a somewhat later version -- it will be the first
version declared by upstream to not be beta.
