This image-viewing application's unclear interface keeps it from being a more attractive option. The majority of PicViewPlus's main window is reserved for viewing photos, while icons for accessing the app's features sit beneath the image. We did like this program's zoom control, which allows you to get a close-up of any portion of the image simply by clicking it. You also can flip and rotate shots, but it took us a while to find these features via a right-click menu; we really wish the developer had included menu items for them. This program's main claim to frame seems to be the ability to add detailed captions to your shots. For example, you can specify such information as exposure bias value, light source, white balance, and orientation. Creating a slide show with transitions was a less painful affair, although it's inconvenient you only can add folders and not individual images. Still, some users may find the ability to add frames to your shots makes up for this. PicViewPlus has some things going for it, but it needs a design overhaul before we really can get excited about it.
PicViewPlus is a picture file display program that offers you a wide range of features combined with ease of use. The application displays the most common picture file types: BMP, JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, and WMF. Navigate easily from picture to picture. Resize the picture window to the height and width of your choice. Zoom via the mouse, keyboard, or keypad. Pan around a zoomed-in view using the mouse, keyboard, or keypad. Use the Thumbnails Window (thumbnail-sized pictures) to assist you. Resequence your pictures in various ways. Automatically advance pictures (slide-show mode). Play audio files having file types WAV, MP3, MID, or WMA.
Version 1.2 now has a variety of simulated picture frames that may be attached to the pictures displayed.
