ThumbsPlus scans your hard
disk, seeks out images, metafiles, fonts and movies and displays them in
thumbnail galleries. You can click on any graphic to display it at normal
size and get an exact measurement of the file size and dimensions. Then you
can invert it, manipulate it, brighten it, darken it, copy it, rename it,
move it, turn it into a transparency (if it's a GIF)....whatever you like!
This remarkable program will catalogue every type of graphics
file on your hard disk ....even TrueType fonts and Microsoft Publisher graphics.
Yet it's simple enough to master within 5 minutes. Trialware versions
are available for Windows 95/98/NT and Macintosh.
Bark Software Development's
HTMLimage is a handy utility program for Windows 95, 98 and NT 4.0. HTMLimage
will browse all the GIFs and JPGs in a directory and then construct a HTML
page for viewing them. The program is simple and useful, and is distributed
as shareware (full registration is $US10). If your budget and/or
requirements don't stretch to more expensive image cataloging software (or
you need to assemble galleries of thumbnails for your site), this may be
the answer to your problems.
Soft Concepts - a software
development house at Lanarkshire in Scotland - produce several very useful
programs for graphics work. One of them is Image Browser, a shareware
thumbnail image viewer, converter, cataloger and printer for BMP, GIF, JPG,
PCX, PNG, TIFF, WMF and Icon images. Unlike ThumbsPlus (above), this program
doesn't create large databases on your hard drive - so it may be very
useful if disk space is at a premium. Image Browser also allows you view
or print your thumbnails lists and perform batch conversions between formats,
and registered users can scan in images with Twain-compliant devices and
perform screen captures as well. Versions are available for Win95/98 and
