Touch & Gesture Support

The touch support was extended in nomacs 2.2. The illustration below shows the most important gestures. Horizontal swipes move to the previous/next image if the image fits into the window (otherwise, these gestures are used for panning). Swiping down from the top opens the thumbnail panel while an upward swipe from the bottom displays the metadata. Plus you can zoom using pinch gestures.

Nomacs & Archives

nomacs supports zipped archives since version 2.2. Hence you can simply drop a zip archive to nomacs and then browse all images in the archive. Fair enough, but the really cool feature, is that you can browse through all images of Microsoft Office documents by simply dropping the files to nomacs. In addition, we have added a tool (Tools > Extract From Archive) which allows to extract all images from Archives to a folder.

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
  • Segfault fixed if ‘fast thumbnail preview’ is checked
  • Saving images without extension (linux only) fixed

Fixes for 2.0

first of all we want to thank those users who provided feedback for the shiny new 2.0 version of nomacs. at the same time, the feedback kept us busy with fixing known issues. the 2.0.2 release fixes particularly these issues:

  • portable version always keeps settings (settings are not written to the registry anymore)
  • plugin download for nomacs portable
  • AppData is not written to home directory (sorry for that, you can delete this folder without any side effects)
  • layout fixes in recent folders/files
  • translation updates fixed
  • thumbnail saving fixed
