Since some screen modes of older computers use non‐square pixels, some images will be scaled so that they appear correctly on a modern display with square pixels. Please note that this is not an exact science, since the monitor used when the artist created the image may not have been properly adjusted. If you don’t like the appearance, you can change the pixel aspect ratio by modifying the ‘par’ parameter in the ‘scaleimg.cgi’ query string.

=============================== README.TXT =================================== GIFs Galore CDROM This CDROM contains over 6000 images, in a wide variety of categories. These images are located in the directory ‘gifs’, with a separate subdirectory for each category. For instance, the directory ‘\gifs\people’ contains pictures of people, and the directory ‘\gifs\birds’ contains pictures of birds. Each subdirectory of images has catalogs containing arrays of reduced images so you can quickly preview the pictures. These catalog files are named 000cat.gif, 001cat.gif, 002cat.gif, etc. Viewers are included for several different systems. They are located in the directory ‘viewers’. To view the images using either GDS or VPIC, you can run the program ‘GDS.BAT’ or ‘VPIC.BAT’ respectively. These program are shareware. (Viewing the images on this CDROM with VPIC does not require registration. Other use does.) Due to the large number of incompatible video cards, most viewers will not work on all systems. So if a particular viewer doesn’t work with your system, try another. Both viewers will work better and offer more colors if you install them for your video card. You’ll need to copy the files to your hard disk and select the correct initialization file for your video card. See the respective documentation for GDS and VPIC and the ‘install.txt’ on the cdrom drive. Many of the programs on this disc are shareware, and require separate payment to the author of the program for continued use. You are free to try shareware programs for a limited amount of time. If you continue to use the program, you are expected to register the program by sending a specified amount of money directly to the author of the program. In many cases the author will send you the most up to date version of the program and a printed manual. Please check individual files for conditions.
