floppy directly from Alchemy Mindworks, this has already been
done for you.
2. Place the disk in a floppy drive of your computer.

______________________________________________________________________________

If you encounter difficulty installing Graphic Workshop, see the instructions
at the end of this file.
______________________________________________________________________________

Graphic Workshop for Windows requires Windows 3.1 or better. A minimum of four
megabytes of memory is recommended. Note that if you have four megabytes in your
system, but a large part of it is tied up in a RAM disk, a disk cache, as EMS or
in some other form which Windows cannot address it, Graphic Workshop may be unable
to run.

Graphic Workshop for Windows has been rewitten for release 1.1. If you've
used an older version of the software, you'll find this one considerably
different.

To begin with, it will come up in Thumbnail mode. You will see at least three
image icons, one or more grey boxes with red circles in them... "no image"
icons... and icons representing the drives and directories of your system.
Clicking on these will work just like clicking on the names in the traditional
list box mode.

You can get to the list box mode by selecting Use Thumbnails from the
Thumbnails menu. This is a toggle... selecting it again will return you to
thumbnail mode. You can configure Graphic Workshop to always come up in its
list box mode through the Setup dialog.

There is much more extensive help in this release of Graphic Workshop, with
Help buttons in most of the dialogs. If you get stuck, click on Help.

Here are some of the major changes to Graphic Workshop for Windows:

- FLI, FLC and WMF support

- Dithered thumbnails

- Windows EXE picture option

- Support for LZW, Group 3 and Group 4 TIFF.

- Support for JPEG compression and the Independent JPEG Group's JFIF
file format.

- Support for Kodak Photo-CDs.

- Additional colour reduction and dithering options.

- Better memory management.

- Context sensitive help.

- PFS:First Publisher ART file support.

- Resizeable main window.

- Thumbnail image mode.

- Key word search and comment fields for each image.

- Easier setup.

Graphic Workshop for Windows has become more powerful, but it hasn't gotten
more expensive. You can register your copy for $40.00. If you'll be
registering by credit card, call our toll free order line at 1-800-263-1138.
Complete information about registering Graphic Workshop for Windows and

If you have difficulties viewing large images... usually on a system with relatively
little memory... try turning off the Fast Video Updates switch in Setup. This does
not work with all Windows screen drivers.

There is a minor problem with the Kodak Photo-CD support, which appears to be due to
a bug in the Kodak libraries. Viewing Photo-CD files may orphan a small block of memory.
This memory will be freed when Graphic Workshop terminates. It's not large enough to
cause any meaningful problems, but it does make the free memory display in the About
box change slightly as you work.

If you have any problems with the Photo-CD section... or just some comments... we'd
like to hear from you.

Graphic Workshop for Windows may encounter difficulty printing to some versions of the
Hewlett-Packard DeskJet 550C driver. This is a known bug, and we're working on it.

Note that the locations of the registration name and number fields have changed... they're
in a box of their own now. Click on Register in the Setup box.

Some users have reported problems with installing Graphic Workshop on systems with
relatively little memory. The SETUP program may be unable to uncompress some of

the files on the distribution disk. If this happens to you, get to the DOS prompt
and do the following.
