[release] Avepreview Version 2

79 posts in this topic

AvePreview 2

A skinnable, little image-previewer application.

Description

New version, better skinning, skinable toolbar-buttons etc.. Just check it out for yourself.

BTW, I challenge everyone to make the OSX-toolbar-buttons, I just lack the talent/graphical editor to do it >.<

Features

- can show a preview of common image types.

- totally skinnable.

- real alpha-blended borders, so shadow can be included with the skin. No need for Y'zShadow/WinFX.

- working roll-up button.

- different states for active/inactive, so the shadow looks less on inactive state, to come as close as possible to the OSX look.

- have that cool transparent titlebar.

- browse thru all image files with the prev/next buttons.

- zoom the image.

- rotate the image around

- crop the image with the cool selectionmode.

- right click the titlebar to select a different skin.

- right click the toolbar to select a different-button skin.

I expect nothing less now days from you AndreasV - and as usual you produce the goods. The extra functionallity is exactly what I need to stop using such memory hungy programs like AcDsee. Many thanks for all your hard work.

I do have one bug though, the shadow on the top corners is missing.

somethng could be fine is to add keybord interact:

- arrows act as "previous" and "next" image in the forlder

- + and - for zooming

- space for next image

could be nice to keep aspect ratio on resize (an option to configure maybe)

some bugs i noticed:

- There is no diagonal resize area on corners, only horizontal and vertical...

- Zoom is kept on changing image (using next and previous) but the window is not resize to the image zoomed but the original image size... (try: open an image, zoom is, click "next" and see :P)

- window label can get out of the window (due to skining feature i think but you should lock it) => the the attached image

- the toolbar is not very well handled when the window is not enougth large to show all the tools (maybe a feature to develop, to add an arrow to show the hidden tools)

hopla that's all for now, i'm trying skining and i'll feedback :)

THAT'S A NICE PREVIEWER AVE!!! can you add feature to make AvePreview defaul image viewer???

Thanks for the bug-report. I will fix them when I don't feel lazy anymore :6

I don't know if I will add options to AvePreview, because it's now time to convert this little app into AveFinder....
