A companion that works with Tk 8.4 and 8.5 is megaimagetk. Documentation for it is available from here: http://www.xmission.com/~georgeps/implementation/software/megapkg/megaimagetk.html

Unfortunately there is a known bug with image display (with the megaimage.frame widget) in Win32 that occurs in some cases. I'm still not sure why, and I could use your help. -GPS

Future directions for image display are based on the ntk extension for the most part, but some of the changes may be backported to megaimagetk.

LV Have you ever taken a look at SVG - Scalable Vector Graphics? Are these something that could be supportable by megaimage?

George Peter Staplin Jan 2, 2008 - Yes, and I'm interested in support for SVG. I have a lot of projects right now (in various states), so I don't know when I will get around to SVG. ntk is taking up a lot of my time, and a NexTkKit to go along with it.
