Feature high-lights: - The only image viewer you need for viewing and browsing images. - Clean with no unnecessary menus and toolbars wasting desktop space. - Uncompromising image quality. - Small and very fast, highly tuned code. - Reads all common image file formats. - Image index feature with very fast thumbnail-icon creation. - Rotate, mirror, zoom, pan, adjust contrast, brightness, sharpness, hue, saturation, gamma, ... - Adjustments can be saved non-destructively (and reapplied next time you open it). - It does not attempt to be a half-baked editor, format converter, or media player. - It does include a simple slide show scripting language. - Translated to several languages. - Freeware and Open Source!
Features for the tech-nerds: - Deep color & HDR support (up to 32-bit floating point / color component). - High quality dithering for superior display of high bit-depth images. - Asynchronous file I/O allows decompression to start before file read finish. - Speculative decoding & caching of images in the background. - Data parallelism exploitation with SSE/SSE2/SSE3/SSE4 SIMD vector-instructions. - Task parallelism exploitation through extensive multi-core support. - Hand tuned code optimizations for critical code paths. - High quality resampling (image resizing) using Catmull-Rom interpolation. - Extensive text meta data support. - Native x64 (64-bit) and x86 (32-bit) versions.
