Imaging for Windows

Imaging for Windows

Imaging for Windows from Global 360 is document imaging software which scans paper documents into electronic documents that users can view, edit, print and distribute via Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Exchange, intranets, and the Internet. Earlier versions of Imaging for Windows is included as in Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000.


Global360 Imaging for Windows is the upgrade to the Imaging software included in Microsoft Windows 95/98/Me and Windows NT/2000 and is suitable for Microsoft Windows XP.

Imaging for Windows was developed by Wang (as in Windows 95/NT 4.0), was later absorbed by Kodak (as Eastman Software, as in Windows 98/2000) then becoming eiStream Inc. and is now owned by Global 360

Imaging for Windows was designed to reduce the manual entry and re-entry, printing, photocopying, and distribution of paper-based documents common to most day-to-day work. Desktop scanning (using TWAIN compliant scanners)and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) replace manual entry; annotation does away with paper memos and stick on notes.

Operating systems supported

Imaging for Windows is included as a Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000 accessory that users can use to create, annotate, view, and print TIFF, BMP, and Microsoft Fax (AWD) image documents. Users can also view and print JPEG and PCX/DCX images.

Its image viewing, editing and scanning functions are superseded by Windows Picture and Fax Viewer and Microsoft Paint, both of which are based on GDI+ in Windows XP.

Software development

Imaging for Windows also provides the ability to develop software using ActiveX tools. Each copy includes the Kodak/Wang Imaging OCX (ActiveX) controls - ImgEdit, ImgAdmin, ImgThumb, ImgScan and ImgOCR controls are provided.

A new version of Imaging for Windows is under development and is expected to be released in late 2008.
