JIBS is a Java Image Browser and Sorter.
Here are some key features of "JIBS":
· Run Slide Shows in Full-Screen mode
· Automatically resizes pictures down to fit screen
Use key board to control manual slide shows:
· CheckmarkGo forward one picture with the space bar, down arrow, right arrow
· Checkmark Go backward one picture with up arrow, left arrow
· Checkmark Go forward/backward 10% with page down/up
· Checkmark Go to beginning/end with home/end
· Use Mouse wheel to go forward and backward
· Automatically flip pictures at an adjustable interval
· Manual controls continue to work during automatic flipping
· Easy to see data recorded with picture (camera type, date taken, etc.)
· Rotate pictures �90by with Left or Right buttons
· Resize the pictures 10% with Shrink or Grow buttons
· Save the modified picture with the Save button
· Easily switch the view directory
· Several options for viewing files
· See the directorys you have to sort among
· See file count for each directory
· Create, rename, delete directories
· Scroll through directory with large resized picture
· Drag pictures to correct directory
· View file list of directory while scrolling through it
· Drag files from the file list to the sorted directory
· Checkmark Move or copy the file
· Rename single files
· Prepend words to the names of a group of files
· Checkmark Especially useful for camera downloads. For example, prepend "soccer" to a group files creating soccerP00001.jpg from P00001.jpg
· Drag & Drop works with native file systems
· Rename camera files with thier date and time
· Checkmark Downloads from cameras are typically named something like P00001.jpg This will rename the file to something like 2003.12.27-18.09.16.jpg giving the exact date and time the picture was taken, formatted to sort correctly in file listings. Works by reading the time and date information recorded when the picture was taken.
· Dedup pictures within a directory or across directories
· Rename a group of files by appending a unique designator
· Checkmark Especially useful for internet downloads where the downloads can have the same names (for example 001.jpg). JIBS will generate a new unique name like 001zxy00001.jpg. The next 001.jpg you download would be renamed with a different number like 001zxy00045.jpg. So now when you drag and drop there won't be name clashes.
· Strain out all non-image files
· Checkmark Strained files are placed in Park for your perusal
· Resize a group of files
· Optimize a group of files
· Checkmark Useful for downloaded files that are slow to display
· Merge a group of files
· CheckmarkUseful for recombining a movie split into several mpeg files
· Preview & print thumbnails of you pictures
· CheckmarkUseful for when you aren't at the computer
· Runs on any platform supporting Java 1.4
· Checkmark Windows
· Checkmark Mac
· Checkmark Linux
· Checkmark Sun Solaris
· Java 2 Standard Edition Runtime Environment
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· For file choosers which open with a default directory, if the default directory is not there, the next higher directory is used. Will not return the root directory. This allows the underlying file chooser to default to the user's home directory in case of root.
· Added a hash check sum checker because I could not easily find one and I hate looking. FireFox plug-in is in test status and I didn't feel like registering.
· If you rename JibsTree.jibs and associate that file ending with JIBS, then double-clicking on JibsTree.jibs will bring up Jibs with that directory list loaded. When you close JIBS, directory list will be written back to JibsTree.jibs. Not sure if I want to change JibsTree.txt to JibsTree.jibs since I don't have a loader to register the ending so what's the point?
· Fixed an annoyance where the entire contents of JibTree.txt was written to the console on startup.
· Eliminated a dependence on com.sun.image.*. That is deprecated and is scheduled to not be compilable for Java 7 and to be eliminated in Java 8. Meantime, it is not supported in the OpenJDK making it problematic on Linux. Also keeps JIBS working from non-Sun versions of Java. Two classes changed were PrintableBase (used in printing contact sheets) and ImageUtil (used in saving JPEG files). Tested by saving and printing Contact Sheets. Also IOImageJava was changed and will be used if you repack in the group operations.
· Fixed a problem where if you did a move and then renamed files, pressing enter to save the new name would also cause the default MOVE action to occur. This is caused by the ENTER button not being consumed by the rename dialog. Have not figured out to have this dialog consume ENTER so using ENTER on the rename dialog has been disabled. Instead an acceleartor of ALT-K is provided. This appears to be behavior built deep into Java which is not readily fixed.
· If you moved files to a directory that already had files of the same name, you would not get a warning if the file was moved with the Repeat, Park, or Trash operations. This has now been corrected.
· CTRL-A on the file tree listing previously selected all in the file tree. This is a relatively useless operation. Typical operation would be to find or create a directory to move to and then press CTRL-A to pick all pictures to move. Typical usage pattern has now been implemented.
· The -veiw option now works even if you selected the "view last directory" option.
· When changing the sort, the picture shown was selected by the count from the top of the list. Now the prior selected picture is remembered and displayed after the sort.
· The was an occasional low level EXIF display null in the box panels. This was triggered by moving a picture with the Enter button. This has been fixed now.
· Fixed: Renaming a directory while several files were selected caused the move files dialog to appear if a move had been done before.
· Yet another attempt to fix the new directory not showing up issue.
· When moving files when the first picture was not selected, sometimes the display became confused. More generally, the next photo would not display properly or was missing its EXIF information. Fixed.
