Software update: ImageGlass 8.3

Spread the love

Version 8.3 of ImageGlass was released not too long ago. ImageGlass is a small, fast and simple open source program that allows Pictures can be viewed. It can rotate and convert images to another format without loss of quality, but for other operations it relies on third-party software. In version 8.0, which has been given Kobe as a nickname, support for new formats has been added, ExifTool can be used to display exif information and can show the individual frames in a gif image. The following improvements have also been made in 8.3:

UI updates

On Windows 11, the app windows and menus are rounded corners by default, while the accent color is widely applied in toolbar, menu, and thumbnail bar on Windows 10, too. These changes improves accessibility of the app, so now you can obviously see the current viewing image, the selected buttons on toolbar.

New feature: Custom zoom

“Custom zoom” lets you set scale factor value of the viewing image a custom value. More flexible, more accurate for zooming feature.

Improvement for multipage format

ImageGlass auto-detects the multipage formats, eg ICO, TIFF, FAX, … and loads all image pages. This may slow down the loading speed for some kinds of image, you also can ask ImageGlass to read them as single-page format by the experiment setting SinglePageFormats. By default, HEIC, HEIF, PSD are treated as single-page format.
Besides that, color management and printing are also supported.

New layout options for Full screen mode

You can make toolbar and thumbnail hidden in Full screen mode, you them in Settings > Image > Full screen.
