Overview

 • Organize and manage a large image collection: find what you are looking for,
   create albums (subcollections), process RAW images, repair and enhance photos,
   combine images (HDR, panorama, mashup, montage), edit and report metadata ...
 • Thumbnail browser/navigator with variable size thumbnails and list view.
 • Camera RAW file conversion, single or batch, with 16 bit color depth.
 • Internal processing in 24 bits per color (float), output in 8 or 16 bits.
 • A comprehensive set of image edit functions is available: brightness, color,
   contrast, trim/crop, rotate, upright, resize, sharpen, denoise, paint, text,
   lines, red eye, fix distortions, HDR, panorama, stack, montage, mashup ...
 • Advanced edit functions to bring out details and add flair to an image.
 • A large set of creative special effects and arty transforms is available
   (sketch, cartoon, emboss, dither, painting, mosaic, sphere, tiny planet ...)
 • Select image objects or areas and edit them separately from the background
   (draw outline, follow edges, spread out from mouse to matching colors ...)
 • Special selection tool for complex edges (e.g. hair, foliage)
 • Copy areas within and across images by mouse painting and blending.
 • Rapid visual feedback using the full image or a selected zoom-in area.
 • Most edit functions can be 'painted' locally and gradually using the mouse.
 • View a 360 degree panorama image (Google Street View format).
 • Metadata edit and report (tags, dates, captions, geotags ... any metadata).
 • Edited files are saved with a version number, originals are kept by default.
 • Transparent image areas can be retained. Variable transparency can be added.

 • Batch tools are available to rename, resize, convert, process RAW files,
   export, add, revise and report metadata, and execute custom edit scripts.
 • Search images using any metadata and folder/file names or partial names
   (dates/times, locations, ratings, captions/comments, exposure data ...).
 • Show a table of image locations and date groups, click for gallery of images.
 • Show an image calendar, click on year or month for a gallery of images.
 • Find images by clicking markers on a scalable world map (internet map).
 • Also use locally stored maps (world, continents, nations, cities ... custom).

 • Slide show: use many animated image transitions and slow pan/zoom in or out.
 • Mashup: arrange images and text in an arbitrary layout using the mouse.
