It took a bit longer than I thought, but here it is. Next version of ShowGirls. For those who don't know what is it, Show Girls is image viewer with some image processing functions. Read more...

This is yet another image viewer. You may ask: why? Well, i was using ShowPPC as my image viewer, but since it has some problems and is not developed anymore, i started to look for new viewer. There are some nice, but i wanted to have some simple image manipulation options (don't want to launch ImageFX to just resize image), and there were nothing as good as ShowPPC. So here it is...


...it combines some options from various image viewers like MiniShowPicture, ShowPPC and some others.
Some of the features:

- Easy browsing of directories (with mouse and keyboard)
- Lots of supported file formats thanks to Datatypes system.
- Nice MUI GUI
- Image processing options like resizing, balance, smoothing, cropping and a lot more
- Saving of images in JPEG or PNG
- Loading/displaying images with alpha channel
- Scaling image display to fit in the window (separate control over enlarging and reducing)
- Scrolling/zooming of big images
- Drag&drop of files/directories to be displayed
- Optional bilinear filtering of the displayed image
- Notification (refreshing of list of files when new files are copied in/removed)
- Thumbnailes generator (with templates)Image
- 2 browser modes (names list or thumbnails)
- Thumbnails browser optimized for viewing pictures taken with digicam(very fast thumbnail creation).


Changes in this version:

Fixed:
- ShowGirls icon is used as appicon when application is iconified.
- When starting without param sometimes there were trash in string gadget.
- Region marking was innacurate.
- Problem when viewing small images, like icons, etc.
- Levels operator. Formula was slightly broken. If somebody misses old mode then i can readd it.
- other smaller or bigger bugs.

New:

- Bugs (probably).
- Using NList class for list of files. Added date and filetype displaying.<R> Sorting works on any of them, including secondary sorting criteria ( press SHIFT and select second column to sort by ). - Thumbnails in directory browser. Adjustable thumb size and border. Thumbnails cache (with several compression methods and other options). "Reduced memory usage" mode. Utilizing special properties in JPEG's created with digital cameras (results in more than 10 times faster thumbnails creation!!)
- Much faster finding of next/previous picture.
- Lossless JPEG transformations (Tools/JPEG Transform). Makes it possible to rotate and flip JPEG images without decompression/compression, so without loosing quality.
- Much faster image scrolling. Scrolling is now also more precise (subpixel accuracy).
- Improved zooming control (separate control over zooming and shrinking).
- Possibility do filter out .info file and non-image files.
- Added tooltypes support (FULLSCREEN and BROWSER).
- Added BROWSER CLI param. The default window now doesn't have it enabled.
- Improved Thumbnailer module:
- Suffix different than .info can be specified.
- Suffix can now also be replaces instead of only added.
- When scaling image aspect doesn't have to be preserved.
- Zooming image in/out with mouse wheel.
- Added default values to some sliders. Try to doubleclick on knob to set to default position (in balance, levels and probably some others too).
- Added mask shape selection to median filter.
- Added "border mode" to resize operator. Works the same way as in ImageFX.
- Now it's also possible to delete directories (a bit limited though. You can't unprotect files for example).
- Improved filerequester when saving. Uses path and filename of currently loaded image, and automaticaly replaces extension to math selected save format.

Hope You will like it.

and soon on aminet.

What a pleasant surprise, that Ambient skin! (ShowGirls looks good too :)
I once (couple of years ago) started it as a VisualPrefs skin, but then gave it to Nowee (IIRC), but didn't hear from him till then. Did he make the Ambient skin? it It's nice to see that it poppup up afterall =)

Darn it. There I was getting all excited as I read the feature list all the way down to the bottom only to find that comment at the end....

Any chance of a version for WarpOS? It wouldn't be impossible would it?

I can't run MorphOS on my BlizzardPPC (coz it ain't available for it) and neither OS4 (coz it ain't out yet) so am still using OS3.9.

Hello Michal,

> No. WarpOS sucks and have to die. Time to upgrade.

True WarpOS may suck. But I have no alternative at the moment (and nor do many other legacy h/w users).

I would upgrade if there were something to upgrade to. IMHO both MorphOS and OS4 are still unfinished/unpolished products.

I have heard the authors of the most buggy serious software ever to grace the Amiga (I am talking about Voyager) have been working on MorphOS. That to me is not a good incentive to "upgrade" to MorphOS. Anyway with the currently available "next gen" hardware, I am waiting to see what will be the better option in the long term for me before I upgrade from my current set-up. It's not the hardware that counts, it's what you can run on it. And I think at the moment I couldn't have everything I have running now (or equivalent) on any of the nextgen "Amigas", so in reply to your comment "Time to upgrade" - I don't think so. Not yet anyway.

If you don't want to write anything for the current Amiga user base - that's your choice - nobody can force you to support the "legacy" user base - but remember it is mostly the current user base who will one day be buying PegasOS' or AOne's, SharkPPC's & whatevers. If your application were to be available for legacy h/w users, there is no reason if they like the software they wouldn't want to experience it's better incarnation on MorphOS or AOS4.

I obviously don't know the first thing about programming for MorphOS/WarpOS/AOS etc but would it really be that difficult to port your existing program to WarpOS?

Kind regards,

Kulwant

Hello Christoph,

Tried out picshow at your suggestion, it's got some good points like ultrafast main picture viewing, but it did cause a recoverable alert - so I don't think I'll use it much. The thumbnail generator wasn't that fast either - roughly 12 secs for 5 jpgs 1280x960 from a digital camera whereas Photoalbum takes roughly 8 secs for the same and PA is a 68k app! I have hundreds of photos so fast thumbnail generation (without poncing around with saving the thumbnails) is what I'm looking for.

In reply to Comment 26 (Kulwant Bhogal):

Yes. Making apps for WarpOS is not really easy or efficient ("famous" context switches). Guess why there were not much of them. I was writing WarpOS apps (for private use) using StormC, but it was buggy and the process was pain in the ass. I will say it again: never again WarpOS/PowerUP software. And i think lots of programmers who tried making apps for MOS/OS4 will agree with me.

And about "legacy" user base. If we want to move forward, we need to create more powerfull apps which obviously require faster machines. I would never even try to make thumbnails into image viewer running on 68k. This would be unusable (except UAE/Amithlon). Other functionality also requires faster machines (alpha blending, filtering, realtime processing...). Development time is one more reason. Now i don't have to write asembly inlines or optimize every routine to the max (though the viewer is really fast). Knowing that it will be running on fast machine i can only concentrate to optimize most critical tasks. I can also utilize new functionality new OS's give. And IMO it's a good way to bring more people from old systems to new ones.

If you're still using a Classic with a PPC card, then I'll just say that I ditched my old A4k + CSPPC + Mediator for a Pegasos and the Pegasos was far more stable and crashed a lot less than my A4k did, and stuff which didn't work, or only worked with a lot of messing about on the A4k worked first time on the Peg, including 68k, WOS, PUP apps. The difference and improvement of a Peg+MOS over a classic with a PPC card is immense.

I switched to Pegasos from PPC A1200 with PicassoIV. I agree with you fully.
Toying around with PUP and WOS software was a pain the ass.. nothing never worked, or if it did, it worked very unstable.
The same software seems to run on Pegasos just fine.

I even tried a clean OS install once to see if that was causing the problems, but it didnt help at all. Should have ditched the PUP Amiga much much earlier.

I simply dont have anything against AmigaOS4. But for some reason, MorphOS just feels much more Amiga-ish than AmigaOS4. Not so bloated gfx, its clean MUI gfx. Everything that I use works without problems.

AmigaOS4 pre-release have problems with TvPaint etc. Not funny, when the GUI boxes gives you white boxes on your painting screen. Thats not happening under MorphOS 68k emulation.

As for TvPaint, i've got no idea why you'd get that effect, as i'm not too familiar with that app, but hey, don't write AOS4 of before it's finished.

As for MOS feeling more Aos like... that's very subjective (and yes, it's bound to attract alot of flames later tonight *sigh*)

Way use MorphOS when Windows have more programs more games, and is leading the race,

MorphOS only splits the Computer world even more, the best option is to only have one platform (windows) so that technician can easy support each and every customer.

no. its purpose is to fully update AmigaOS. NOT just run an AmigaOS 3.x
emulator shell with a totally different kernel and 'QBox' hiding behind the show.

MorphOS is great. but 4 years down the line, you'll still be with all those os3.x problems. or not using AmigaOS at all.

MUI is not bloated and is clean?

Problem with TVPaint - well, thats because AmigaOS4 isnt just a 68k emulator using
OS3.x graphics. its totally updated. If certain apps are broken is some ways
(and many are) then solutions to get them working/tweaked are always being looked at. you wont believe how much really bad code was running on your old Amigas! 40% of Aminet is DANGEROUS code! at *least* 40%!
