Features - Picture Gallery
One of the most popular uses for News Rover is downloading, decoding, and
viewing picture files attached to Usenet messages. To make this process
as efficient as possible, News Rover includes a "Picture Gallery" feature.
As pictures are received for an Interest Group
they are stored in a holding directory associated with the interest
group. When you select the picture gallery for the interest group, you
are shown an array of thumbnail pictures of the pending pictures
for the interest group. You can control the size of the thumbnail
pictures, but usually 9 to 12 are visible at a time. You can adjust the size
of the gallery display to match your screen size. You can use the
scroll bar, the Page up/down keys, and the arrow keys to move through
the set of pictures in the gallery.
If you wish to see the full size version of a picture in the gallery,
simply place the cursor over the thumbnail image and click the left
mouse button. To remove a picture, place the cursor over the thumbnail
image and press the Delete key.
As you find pictures in the gallery that you wish to add to your
permanent collection, just position the cursor over the thumbnail
image and click the right mouse button. A popup menu will appear with
"Save" and "Save as" options. When you click "Save" the original, full
size picture file will be moved to the permanent storage directory that you
have associated with the interest group.
You can view and manage pictures in the gallery while News Rover is
running and collecting more messages and pictures.
With the picture gallery you can review hundreds of pictures in a few
minutes and quickly select the ones that are worth saving.
Since you're using News Rover, you've probably got a pile of
pictures. And if you've got a pile of pictures, you've got
duplicates! Until now... Be sure to stop by and grab a copy of
a one of a kind duplicate image file manger written by a
newsgroup hound for newsgroup hounds. Find, Compare, Delete,
Rename, and Move duplicate image files from multiple directories and
drives (even ZIP's and M/O's) using traditional, fuzzy, and
intelligent methods inluding Name, Size, Checksum, Color usage, and
even Pattern recognition to find images that have been rotated or
flipped! Special price of $14.95 being offered to News Rover
