Imagen is an easy-to-use media player that allows users to play sequentially numbered images in succession. With an intuitive interface and support for a wide variety of file formats, Imagen is a fun and versatile multimedia tool.
Imagen's interface is quite intuitive, with a large viewing area and a well-organized menu at the top. Playing a set of images is easy: users simply make sure that the desired files are numbered sequentially and then open the first file in the sequence. The program will ask users to enter their desired frame rate (25 fps is the default), and the selected images will play in sequence. We were impressed that Imagen did not require us to import, drag and drop, or otherwise get our images into the program before they could be played; the entire thing was quite hassle-free. We were also impressed by the large number of different file formats that Imagen supports. There are not only 19 video and image formats, but five audio formats as well, allowing the program to function as a regular media player for audio and video files in addition to its image-playing capabilities. The program's online Help file could be a little more detailed, but isn't bad. Overall, we thought that Imagen was well-designed and fun to use, and that it functioned well both as an image player and a regular media player.
Imagen is free. The program installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.
Imagen plays a large sequence of numerated images like any other video clip. When you open a single image, it will scan the folder and detect other images following the same naming convention (e.g. pic00001.jpg, pic00002.jpg, up to pic01999.jpg). It support images in BMP, DIB, JPEG, PNG, GIF, TGA, TIFF, PCX, BAYER, CIN, CVR, RGB, XPM, SGI, and SUN file format. The player supports AVI, MPEG, HAV, FLC, MP3, OGG, and WAV multimedia formats. Video files can be slowed down or speeded-up, screenshots from movies can be saved to disk as image files.
