Managing a huge photo library is usually a daunting task. That's why image viewers like Image Glass, FreeVimager, qimgv, DigiKam etc., are very useful, as it is easier to visually browse a photo folder than to use Windows Explorer. The FocusOn Image Viewer is a similar, free, photo viewer for Windows, with built-in image editing features and enhancement options.
The program uses a three-window view, like most programs of this type. A left window for the folder of files and files. A window below it with a preview of each photo and a right window with the available photos from the selected folder.
There is an address bar at the top of the windows and the navigation keys on the left. On the right there are buttons to toggle between viewing details / thumbnails, sorting and file options. The filter box will restrict your appearance by giving only the images that match the keyword.
There is a slider in the upper right corner, with which you can change the size of the folder thumbnails displayed in the right pane. Select a photo and you will see a preview of it in the preview panel in the lower left corner.
You can go to full screen, rotate an image, move it to a different folder, create a new folder using the toolbar. There are four other options in the toolbar: Blog, Archive, Print and Slideshow. A blog is actually a sharing option that allows you to upload an image and post it on your website, or on your Twitter or Facebook page, or email it to someone.
The Archive feature places the image in its archive folder FocusOn Image Viewer or, to be more precise, in the Windows Images folder. However, you can change the location to whatever you want from the Options menu. The program uses the following template format: YYYY \ MM \ EH to place the photos, that is, it creates three subfolders for the Year, Month and Date and places the image in the date folder. This is not the current date, but the date the photo was taken. For example, if you wanted to archive an image taken on March 16, 2019, it will place it in the C: \ Users \ Dimitris \ Images \ 2019 \ 03 \ 16 directory.
Double-click an image or use the view option on the toolbar to enlarge the image. The toolbar options will change and give you the right to view the image in full screen, adjust it on the screen, zoom in / out and view the next / previous photo in the folder. Click the List button to return to the default view.
The FocusOn Image Viewer has a built-in editor, which is available when loading an image in View mode. The additional options displayed on the toolbar can be used to resize and crop the image. There is a sidebar on the right with some tabs. The default is the EXIF tab, which displays the image metadata.
The program has various filters and effects that can change the way a photo is displayed. Adjust the brightness, contrast, gamma, color temperature, RGB, hue, saturation, sharpness, and noise reduction levels using the sliders on the Adjustment tab. Don't want to play with these settings? Use Auto Adjust on the Filter tab to automatically enhance the image. Or you can choose one of the following options: Sharpen, Blur, Monochrome, Nostalgia, Beauty, Outline, Painting, Mozaic, Vignette, Film. Press the reset option to upload the original image.
The Frame option can be used to add a frame around the image borders. Click the text tab to place a watermark on your photo. You can customize the position, text, font style, size, color, and opacity.
Right-click on a photo to see an extended context menu. Most of the options in this menu are available in the toolbar, but there are some that are not, such as grid (in edit mode), removing EXIF data, copying the color value. The Convert option can be used to save the image in JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIF formats.
