11/15/91  BATCHPRO 1.0,  Matt Shaw and Virtual Image Labs

BATCHPRO is copyrighted, but freely distributable so long as NO fee is
charged other than a minimal disk duplication fee. 


System Requirements:
This program can only really be used if one has gobs of memory.  I
recommend 9 megs or more.  An accelerator, and of course the most
professional and well documented program for the Amiga, Art Department
Proffessional.  If you use graphics on the Amiga, AdPro is a must.

Why:
BP was designed for one purpose, I was sick and tired of converting tons of
24bit files back and forth from one format to another.  Imagine 1.1 IFF24
files work great in the Firecracker, but crash the machine when loaded into
ToasterPain, except if loaded and saved in Adpro first. This gets a bit old
when you have to load and save 1000 files in Adpro.  Fortunately, ASDG
added one of Adpro's most powerful features, it's AREXX port.  I wrote all
kinds of neat AREXX scripts to do all the conversions, finally I decided I
could use CANDO and make a much easier to use interface that would use
CANDO'S built-in AREXX ability to do all the work without even requiring
CANDO.  BP makes it almost sinfully easy to convert all your files to JPEG
compressed files and back.


Future:
Next release version of BatchPro will have some really nice enchancements.
You will be able to do almost any combination of available Adpro operations on
the files before saving.  I have this mostly done, but am ironing out the
bugs.  I have also added a load configuration section so one doesn't have
to keep setting everything on every run.
