The Victor Library includes complete downloadable documentation consisting of a User's Guide and Library Reference. Each function is fully explained and its use is illustrated by examples. Technical support is always free and only a phone call or email message away.
Victor Image Processing Library contains the functions you need to create image applications using all the popular formats:
For details see Victor Image File Formats
For an explanation of color reduction see the Application Note on Color Reduction

The Victor Library is available as DLL, static library, or complete source code.
This is a 32-bit DLL for use with 32-bit programming languages to create desktop applications for 32-bit Windows or use ASP.NET to create online applications for Windows-hosted Internet servers.
At 280Kb VIC32.DLL is small and fast. Twain support is included in a 60 kb DLL. Compatible with C/C++, C#, Visual Basic, VB.NET, ASP.NET, and Java.
The Victor Library for 32-bit Windows is compatible with all 32- and 64-bit Windows operating systems including Windows 8.
This is a 64-bit DLL for use with 64-bit programming languages. The functionality is identical to the 32-bit version of the library, but it is strictly for 64-bit Windows operating systems.
The static library is for use with C/C++ and suitable for linking directly into your application or creating ActiveX controls. Twain support is included in a separate linkable library. Example C/C++ programs are included.
This is the complete C source code for recompiling the entire library. The version is useful for programmers who need to create custom versions of library functions or for porting functions to other operating systems.
For all versions there are no royalties payable to Catenary Systems for distribution of your executable applications.
Victor gives you functions to read and write bilevel, grayscale, and color images in BMP, DIB, EPS, GIF, JPEG, PCX, PNG, TGA, TIFF and raw data image formats. The image files can be read from and written to to memory buffers as well as disk files. File Handling Function List
Victor offers image processing functions like brightness, contrast, sharpening filters, outlines, matrix convolution, equalization, resize, overlay, flip, mirror, rotate, plus math and logic operations that can operate on any area of an image. Image Processing Function List
Victor includes many multi-image functions to combine and compare images. This ability is especially useful for image analysis. Your application can search for differences, use motion detection, find alignment or registration marks, perform pattern recognition, and create special effects. Summary of Combine and Compare Functions
These functions can convert 24-bit RGB images into 256 or fewer colors. These functions can compute the optimum palette, use a standard palette, or match an existing palette for multiple image display. Color Reduction Function List.
Large images can be manipulated with ease.
Images are held in memory as Device Independent Bitmaps (DIBs) and every function in the Victor Library can operate on any rectangular area of interest within a larger image.
Victor images are always accessible by the programmer for processing with your own custom functions. You always have access to the image data.
Victor Library for Windows can print bilevel, grayscale, and color images at any size on all Windows-supported printers.
Victor gives you complete control for capturing images with a TWAIN compliant device: scanner or digital camera. Capture bilevel, grayscale, and color images directly into memory with complete control of resolution, image size, and automatic document feeder.
While the Victor Library for 32-bit Windows is compatible with all 64-bit Windows operating systems, the manufacturers of scanning devices may not provide TWAIN drivers for 64-bit Windows that will function with 32-bit applications. If you need TWAIN support for 64-bit Windows you should be using the 64-bit version of the Victor Library.
Victor Library for Windows can show images on any Windows display.
