GigaPX Tools is a set of useful functions to manage huge pictures easily. It supports, both for input and output, three of the most used file formats for gigapixel images: RAW, TIFF/bigTIFF and KRO with 8-bit or 16-bit color depth.
Format conversion : converts gigapixel images from one of the supported formats to a different one.
Crop ( Windows only) : useful to cut out the black areas around the image borders or to extract a portion of the picture.
Resize ( Windows only) : scales down an image to any dimension. Handful to get a quick preview of the rendered image, to publish it on a web page, to print a copy or set it as desktop background.
Split : divides the big picture in a set of small images. In this way it’s possible to edit the tiles that need to be adjusted with Photoshop, Gimp or similar programs.
Merge : reverts the set of tiles back to the gigaimage.
GigaPX Tools is distributed in three different editions : Free, Lite and Professional. The Free version is free both for personal and commercial use. See the table below for the differences between the versions.
