in reply to Using the Imager package

Imager doesn't include the low level libraries for reading formats like PNG - just an interface to them.

The simplest way to work with Imager on Win32 is strawberry perl, which includes Imager and the libraries that Imager needs.

If you really want to use ActiveState perl, you could grab the libraries and headers from the strawberry perl zip files.
