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

Brand your nomacs

Since nomacs 3, you can change the background image which is displayed on start-up. You just need to place an image called ‘bg.png’ into a folder together with your nomacs.exe. Here is how this looks like:tu-branding

If you add a second file named ‘bgf.png’, the splash screen of the frameless mode will be overwritten.

Tiny Planet

nomacs can turn your photo spheres into Tiny Planets. Therefore, you first need to capture a photo sphere. Here is how you do this in your camera app on Android:

photo-sphereIn nomacs you can choose Edit > Tiny Planet to turn your favorite photo sphere into a tiny planet.
