I developed a new application ... It is ... something different....
This is an image viewer and editor based on the GDI+ and FreeImage libraries. It can open 85 image file formats: .hdr, .raw, .tif, .emf, .wmf, .png, .bmp, .gif, .jpeg and many others.
QPV is also able to create image slideshows and cache very large dynamic lists of files. Unlike other applications of this kind, it can load, on my system, a list of 500000 files in under 10 seconds, while XnView Classic or Irfan View need more than 15 minutes.
Quick Picto Viewer is also able to play sound files associated with images, automatically or on demand, and even generate slideshows that are in synch with the audio files duration. Supported audio formats: WAV, MP3 and WMA.
Since Quick Picto Viewer v4, users can also edit images by using freely rotated elliptical or rectangular selections. Common functions provided: paste in place, color adjustments, draw arcs, lines or shapes, insert text, soft edges blur area and so on.
ZIP Package compiled [x64 / x32]
Source code on GitHub
Current version: 4.6.0 -- Release date: 2020, 25th of September.
Since Quick Picto Viewer v4, it relies on AHK_H for multi-threading.
Please send me feedback and suggestions.
Best regards, Marius.
