Hi Michel,

I don't want you to promise dates. Your envision runs very well!!! in my digital archive witch contains about 120.000 tifs and jpegs. But I visit your homepage about one year and no realy enhancements could be found. My wishes to enhance envision come from practice.

My Priorities:

1. High quality display
Antialiasing for B/W images. I found some source at
Jedi project. Using this function I receive a display qualitiy even like Kodak OCX shipped with windows. I don't want to use this OCX any more.

2. Working with scanned images
a) Annotations and some objects like textmarkers
b) Copy regions from scanned page and paste them into a new image with original image informations (dpi, size, color depth etc.).
c) Correct scanned pages like TDeskviewTransform from Delphi Italian Page but WITH source.
d) Supporting some OCR engines and if possible royal free

3. Comfort and nice to have
TOverviewPanel, TBlowUpPanel (Delphi Italian Page) with source

All these enhancements I can create by myself. But it would be nice to receive them with envision.

Currently I create a designer like Delphi's TFormDesigner to design new images with copied regions (clippings) from scanned pages. Using interfaces I can drop these clippings and any Delphi visual component, drop it onto the image and save it as a new image.

Have a nice day and best regards

Sorry about my english... I'm a german and I needed about more than one hour to write this message
