AWare Systems on-line

Is our home-page, is where you are right now, is where we aim to offer imaging expertise for the developer. If you are interested in graphics programming you may want to bookmark this site.

Custom development
This section contains information on AWare Systems' custom development activities.

The main part of our library is geared towards imaging. Graphic file format codecs, document imaging, medical imaging, or simply printing that invoice with company logo on it... This library is used as a basis for custom imaging-related development. We are also currently launching a series of off-the-shelf products based on our TIFF related library and components. We already offer a free TIFF Tag Viewer for Windows, and maintain the LibTiff Mailing List Archive, as a community service.

These are mostly unrelated discussions of topics that have popped up and were answered by an AWare Systems programmer in newsgroups like, ranging from techniques for big image handling to e.g. calculating an unused color. Also included is an overview of the Delphi VCL TGraphic, TBitmap, TPicture, and TImage basic intended usage. They are presented here as a free community service.

AWare Systems is Joris Van Damme. This section is where we tell you who we are, and where to find us.

Mostly graphics-related links. There's one or two non-technical links though, because, all work and no play...
