                                IMDISP 7.4
                              August 23, 1991

      Version 7.4 of the IMDISP program has now been released.  IMDISP
 is an interactive image processing program that runs on an IBM PC
 computer. It was written to be used with the Voyager and Magellan
 images which are available on CDROM.  IMDISP has appeared on the GRIPS
 CDROM (version 4.4) and the GRIPS 2 CDROM (version 5.6), and is
 currently being distributed with all of the planetary image CDROMs.
 IMDISP 7.4 is a test version and is being released for evaluation.

      IMDISP 7.4 is available via anonymous ftp at
 [] in the file in the pub/SPACE/SOFTWARE
 subdirectory. It will also be available soon at

      IMDISP74.ZIP consists of the following files:

                 IMDISP.EXE   - IMDISP program version 7.4
                 IMDISP.DOC   - User's Guide for IMDISP 7.4
                 PALETTES.ZIP - Color palette collection
                 PAL.BAT      - Batch file to display each color palette
                 CYCLE.BAT    - Batch file to color cycle each color

      Also included in a separate file,, is a collection of
 images and batch files which are used to perform a demo for IMDISP.
 This demo is similiar to the one I gave during the JPL Expo on August
 3-4, 1991. The demo requires a minimum of a 800x600 graphics display,
 2MB of memory and a little over 3MB of hard disk space.

      File sizes:

           IMDISP74.ZIP     207,710 bytes
           IMDISPD.ZIP    1,611,511 bytes

      Note: don't forget to be in binary mode when ftping these files.

      Since I am one of the programmers for IMDISP, I would appreciate
 any feedback on IMDISP, including any problems encountered and
 suggestions for improvement.  The features of IMDISP 7.4 are listed
