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:

- 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.


- 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.
