nomacs 3.4

may we introduce nomacs 3.4 – It’s all fresh and organic. This version introduces a new batch processing UI. We have added profiles – so you can save common batch configurations (and run them from the command line).

Info for Windows users: we recommend to uninstall any prior version of nomacs and then install nomacs 3.4.

– Batch UI reworked
– Batch Profiles added
– Cropping to metadata
– RGB to Gray improved
– Crash on delete fixed
– Slow thumbnail rendering fixed
– Start-up time improved
– RAW/PSD orientation fixed

nomacs 2.4.4

this version is mainly a response to all your suggestions and bug reports – thank you for supporting us in increasing nomacs’ performance and usability. New features include:

  • Improved batch processing (you can now add images from multiple folders)
  • New Metadata HUD panel (you can dynamically choose entries)
  • nomacs respects your default proxy settings (e.g. when [manually] updating)
  • The portable version ships with a qss file (so you can customize almost everything)

the most important fixes are:

  • Default strings are now translated
  • Linux file sorting is (hopefully) fixed by now
  • Gamma correction for rescaling is now 16 bit (smooth gradients)
  • Zoom to Fit added (replaces ‘Reset Zoom’)
  • Saving of multiple tabs
  • UTF-8 encoding for image notes
  • General stability improvements

[EDIT] thanks to R3gi we have noticed that nomacs 2.4.4 has slow loading times on Windows 7. That is why we updated only these versions to nomacs 2.4.5. Sorry for any inconveniences caused!

  • Batch Processing fixed
  • GIF movie toolbar fixed (thanks to alyosama)

nomacs 2.4.0

the new 2.4.0 release is a milestone in our development. First, it will be the last feature release which mainly supports Qt 4 (again the numbers align perfectly: 2.4). Second, it is probably the hugest feature release ever. The most important features include tabs, an all-in-wonder batch processing, and an improved thumbnail preview. Good news for all Windows XP and Vista users (who should definitely update their system : ), we compiled nomacs a last time for these systems. Here is the full changelog:

  • Batch processing (you can try it by clicking Tools > Batch Processing)
  • Image tabs (open multiple images within different tabs)
  • Thumbnail preview improved (copy/paste delete/rename is now supported)
  • Zoom panel improved (you can now chose a specific zoom level)
  • Olympus RAW added
  • Convert to grayscale added (thanks to shreelock)
  • Faster directory loading (especially if you have many images in a folder)
  • Gesture improvements
  • Saving of images from archives (e.g. zip, docx) is now supported
  • File sorting improved (Unix-based systems only)
  • Stability improvements

nomacs 2.2

you know we like numbers… so we release nomacs 2.2 on 11.11. This version fixes a few issues you reported and adds cool features such as reading images from zip (docx, xlsx, pptx) archives, or a full metadata panel. The full changelog is:

  • Reading images from ZIP (+ Office Documents e.g. docx, xlsx, pptx)
  • Metadata panel (displays all metadata of an image)
  • Thumbnail panel layout (Vertical or Undock)
  • Notes (you can now take and display notes which are written to the image metadata)
  • Private mode which does not save any settings including recent files
  • Option which disables check for updates
  • Option which disables logging of recent files/folders
  • Additional RAW files added (including Pentax [PEF], Samsung [SRW], Hasselblad [3FR] and Sigma [X3F])
  • JPG2000 read/write fixed for large files (windows with setup only)
  • Resize dialog fixes
  • File order fixed for Linux/Unix
