PMView is a viewing and editing tool for bitmapped graphics. It provides support for systems with palette manager and deep color displays. On systems with palette manager, PMView uses its color optimizing functions to make sure that you always get good looking images with the best colors possible and enables color animation. Other features include an easy-to-use drag-and-drop slideshow feature; broad and fast support for a variety of file formats including GIF, TIFF, PhotoCD PRO, and JPEG; and thumbnail browsing. For maximum performance, PMView is mostly written in C++ using exception handling with time-critical tasks hand-coded in Pentium assembly language.
