This is a collection of small image file viewers for Windows. They
will allow you to have a look at Macpaint, BMP, GIF, PCX, TGA,
WordPerfect WPG, TIFF, WPG and Windows ICO files.

More to the point, however, these programs are presented in
source code form in the book:

Windows Bitmapped Graphics, by Steve Rimmer
published by TAB Windcrest (TAB book 4265, ISBN 0-8306-4206-4)

If you buy the book, you'll be able to create your own image
file viewers and writers in whatever form you like. It includes
the C language source code for these viewers, and for applications
to illustrate printing and dithering bitmapped graphics as well.
It's a single source for anyone who wants to work with bitmapped
graphics under Windows.

And it comes with lizards...


To install these viewers in you system, put the files from this
archive on a floppy disk, put the floppy disk in a floppy disk
drive of your system... a good place to begin... and run SETUP.EXE
using the Run command of the Program Manager file menu.

Do not attempt to install these applications from the same drive
as the source files are on.


Finally, some advertising...

If you want a really powerful image manipulation and viewing
package for Windows, we urge you to have a look at Graphic Workshop
for Windows. It's available on CompuServe as GWSWIN.ZIP in
library four of GO PICS. Alternately, feel free to call our bulletin
board at (416) 729-4609.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
