[REBOL] graphic file conversion

From: galtbarber:mailandnews at: 4-Aug-2000 19:42

Hi, I just did a screen snapshot in windows, then pasted it into paint and the saved and you get an enormous uncompressed windows bmp. Could I use some trick in Rebol/View to turn it into a gif file or other nice format? I know View must be able to read gif jpg and maybe some others in order to render them on faces. Can it write them, too? Is there some lousy gif patent that lets you provide gif readers but not gif writers? -Galt
