Providing valuable assistance to the programer in understanding how the API works and how it can be used to write programs, this book contains descriptions of image processing operations and gives pragmatic examples of their use. As the only widely available document other than the standard itself, this guide will be useful to readers who want to evaluate PIKS as their future imaging API.
