An image editor application. Originally written to be a tutorial for
the NetBeans Platform
on how to properly
write an extensible application, it is a functional image editor with the
potential to grow similar functionality to Gimp, et. al. Tools, filters,
brushes, effects, fills and much more are pluggable.

Features At A Glance
Pluggable Layer, Tool and Effect types. Built in support for
both raster (backing data stored as a bitmap) and
vector (resolution-independent) layers.
Supports editing images and creating new images
Fill patterns are pluggable with an API, and also existing images
or a selection can be used to create new fill patterns.
1/24/2008: API is semi-stabilized for most things.
The raster layer functionality is being stabilized, and builds will be available
soon. The vector layer functionality is less stable and may not initially be
made available in builds.
Build and Run
The easiest way to build and run the application is using the
. Simply check out the sources
cvs -d:pserver:[yourusername]@cvs.dev.java.net:/cvs co imagine
and then open the
directory as a project and run it.
Imagine requires JDK 6.
