ionForge, a provider of next-generation source control and configuration management tools, has released their imageDiff software as a stand-alone product. Previously only available as part of ionForge’s Evolution, imageDiff is available as a free download for a limited time at imageDiff's website
imageDiff gives users the ability to compare images of different formats with each other, including JPG, GIF, BMP, TIF, PNG and track changes across different file formats. By making this possible, the creators of the utility claim that it will help ensure that gaming and entertainment projects are completed accurately, as well as on time and on budget.
While ionForge has made the download freely available to artists and developers at this time, the company is requesting that anyone who downloads the software make a donation to the Jamaican Cancer Society
(JCS) to honor one of the original members of the ionForge development team, Francis Salmon. Salmon and his father both passed away within the last year from pancreatic cancer.
