+FastPhoto
+=========
+
+FastPhoto is a high-performance rescaling tool for photographic images. It
+can be installed on a web server as a handler for files of type image/jpeg,
+providing fast server-side resizing with (optional) transparent caching. It
+can also be used as a commandline application.
+
+FastPhoto uses Epeg, a high-performance JPEG resizing library which decodes
+only the DCT coefficients needed to reconstruct an image of the desired size,
+and avoids colorspace conversions where possible.
+
+FastPhoto preserves the aspect of the original file unless both width and
+height options are specified.
+
+Usage
+-----
+
+For details of commandline options, see the fastphoto.1 man page included in
+this source distribution.
+
+For web server configuration details, see the FastPhoto homepage:
