Raster image

What kind of data should the tool work with?

ERDAS Imagine is a suite of geospatial data authoring software. The suite contains a raster graphics editor and remote sensing application that performs advanced remote sensing analysis and spatial modelling to create new information. ERDAS IMAGINE can also visualize results in 2D, 3D, video, and on cartographic quality map compositions. It is primarily designed for geospatial raster data processing and the creation of digital images for mapping use in GIS or CAD software.

Corel Painter is a raster-based digital art application designed to simulate the appearance and behaviour of traditional media associated with drawing, painting, and printmaking. It is meant to be used with a graphics tablet or mouse.

The software offers a range of traditional artists' tools and materials (watercolour, oil paint, pastels, air brush, felt pens, chalk, charcoal & coloured pencil) and non-traditional effects (Image Hose, pattern pens, F/X, distortion, etc). Corel offers an online webinar library, tutorials, and other learning tools through their website.

GIMP is image editing software, much like Photoshop. It is a multi-platform software application primarily used for image composition and editing. The basic tool may be augmented by plug-ins and extensions that allow the use of new file formats, effects filters and batch processing capabilities. GIMP was initially created to manipulate raster images, but has been extended to provide limited vector image and moving image support. A number of free extensions are available in the plugin registry.
