Windows

The Inzomia image viewer can be used in either Windowed or Fullscreen mode. In window mode the viewer has four windows where only the image window needs to be visible:

All windows can be resized and moved and the windows snap to the image window and the desktop edges although this behavior can be turned off from the Preferences.

Image Window

The image window displays the actual image. Zoom the image by holding down the right mouse button while moving then mouse forward or backward. Pan the image by holding down the left mouse button while moving the cursor. To load a new image double-click its thumbnail in the playlist window.
The image windows title bar displays the name of the image together with its pixel dimension and current scale.


You can drag images from other programs directly to the image window without first adding it to the playlist. You can for example possible view an image from Internet Explorer simply by dragging the image from the browser and drop it on the image window.

There are three sets of toolbar buttons inside the image window. By default the toolbar is hidden to allow as much as possible of the image to show. To show the hidden toolbar buttons make sure the image window is active, if it is not click somewhere inside the window, and move the cursor to the top of the window.

Attribute buttons – to the left

The attribute buttons to the left change how the image is displayed. The top left button scales the image to fit the image inside the current window. The next button scales the current image to its natural size 1:1 (100%). The last two buttons let you rotate the current image.

When a playlist is saved the image attributes are saved with it. Changing attributes does not in any way alter the actual image file.

Slideshow buttons – in the middle

The slideshow buttons control playback of a slideshow. From the left the buttons are play, stop, pause, next and previous. Play starts the slideshow and displays each image for the number of seconds selected in the options, default is 5 seconds. When a slideshow is running or is paused a small progress bar is displayed on top of the play-button. The stop button stops the slideshow and the pause pauses the slideshow so it can be started later at the same image. The next and previous buttons shows to the next or previous image in the slideshow. You can also jump around in the slideshow while it is playing by clicking thumbnails in the playlist.

Window buttons - in Windows mode

The right edge buttons changes the main four windows. The first button switches the image window to fullscreen mode. The second button hides or shows the playlist window, the third button hides or shows the web browser window and the last button hides or shows the file explorer window.

Window buttons - in Fullscreen mode

The right edge buttons in fullscreen mode replace the playlist window. All images in your current playlist will be shown on the right edge. Scroll the thumbnail list by moving the cursor up or down on the right edge. You can load new images by clicking the thumbnails. To the left of the thumbnail list you find the button to return to windowed mode.

Playlist window

The playlist window displays large thumbnails of the images currently in your playlist. You can open an image from the playlist into the image window by double-clicking its thumbnail.

Adding images

Add images to you playlist by:

When you add folders to the playlist all the images in the folders will be added but not images in subfolders. You can add zip files to the playlist and all images in the zip file will be added to the playlist regardless of the directory structure in the archive. It is also possible to merge two playlists by adding a previously saved playlists to the current playlist.

In the options you can set filters to ignore certain types of files. It is for example possible to skip all images smaller then 50kb or all images with a filename starting with ‘tmb_’, very useful when working with images in web pages where you have a few photos but a lot of icons, button and thumbnail images. Inzomia zoom studio saves its thumbnails prefixed with tmb_ (http://www.inzomia.com).

When you add images to the playlist window a thumbnail is automatically created after a few seconds. While thumbnails are being added the application may run a bit slower. When you are adding a lot of images the title of the playlist window will change to let you know the application is working, you can still viewer images as the thumbnails are being created.

Working with the playlist

You can change the order of the playlist by dragging the thumbnails. Right clicking a thumbnail brings up a context menu.

The following commands are available from the context menu of a thumbnail:

Locked images will not be removed from the playlist when you select clear clear but they will be removed by the remove command. Locking images and using clear is very useful when you want to pick out a few images from a folder. Start by adding the folder to the playlist then lock the images you want to keep and finish by clearing the complete playlist and you are left with the selected images you locked. When you select “browse folder the shell window will open the folder where the image is stored.

 

Just as you can drag images to the playlist window it is possible to drag images from the playlist window to other programs or the image window.

At the bottom of the playlist window there is a button area with the following functions:
