Most graphical editors are either for photos or video but FreeVimager allows you to do both, albeit to a limited extent.
FreeVimager is particularly useful for anyone who normally uses their camera for both photos and videos (which most of us do). First of all, FreeVimager is extremely lightweight for both an image and video editor weighing in at just over 10MB. FreeVimager allows you to view & edit graphics file in jpeg, bmp, gif, tiff (multi-page), png and pcx format which is a decent amount and sufficient for most home users. It's also remarkably flexible supporting every version of Windows from 95 onwards. One aspect which is particularly useful is that of multi-monitor support which basically means that you can work on multiple projects at once - for example one photos project and one video project. FreeVimager is also suitable for those in the know or who need technical data when it comes to photos because it maintains EXIF data when resaving and editing photos so you can see at a glance the aperture, exposure and file size instantly. You can process an unlimited number of images at once as FreeVimager also comes equipped with a very basic slideshow creator. You can also preview print jobs, create collages and it optimises images for sending by e-mail (by basically reducing their size without losing the quality).
For anyone that uses their camera for both photos and videos regularly, then FreeVimager will give you enough power to do both at once without complicating life.
- - Beside the multi-page file the Scan to Tiff command saves now also the single pages in separate files
- - New toolbar button for Scan to Tiff and for Email
- - When Scan to Tiff or Scan to Pdf dialogs are closed the program asks whether more pages are to be scanned (removed the superfluous Lock Scan Dialog option)
- - Convert 32 bpp images to 24 bpp when sending them to the printer; this because the alpha component is interpreted by some printers even if it's not an image with alpha channel
