Summary     : OCaml image processing library
Description :
CamlImages is an image processing library for Objective CAML, which provides:
basic functions for image processing and loading/saving, various image file
formats (hence providing a translation facility from format to format),
and an interface with the Caml graphics library allows to display images
in the Graphics module screen and to mix them with Caml drawings

In addition, the library can handle huge images that cannot be (or can hardly
be) stored into the main memory (the library then automatically creates swap
files and escapes them to reduce the memory usage).
