Among the many options we have available in FreeVimager, below, we show you the main and most interesting.
When we install FreeVimager and open it, a fairly simple interface will appear as shown below. In this gray panel, we will host our images in windows , as if it were a desktop as in Windows, but with images in this case.
As an example of the above, two images open from the same application and housed in the same panel are shown below. With this function we can edit and view our images simultaneously and faster.
We can also organize them in tabs, and edit one image and then another. We can open several images in windows, as long as they fit in our panel.
The tools that we will show next, and those that the program incorporates, are generally located in the lower panel of each image.
One tool we have is to rotate our images in the desired direction. As shown in the example, we can rotate them in both directions and 90 degrees.
To rotate them completely, we choose the desired address, and we will click on that address until they are rotated to our liking.
The option to modify the size of our images is quite complete, where we can modify this size in percentage or in pixels. It also allows us to choose the quality we want to maintain in these images and / or the aspect ratio.
Another option we have is to crop our images, and as promised by the program, without losing almost quality. In this case, if it fulfills its function and the quality which has been lost is minimal.
The example shown below defines it, it may look somewhat pixelated, but it is due to the compression that the example image has suffered for you.
An interesting option is which allows us to adjust the image according to the brightness, contrast, saturation and hue we want. It also allows us to view the original image to see the change suffered after adjustment.
One option added to us is to undo the changes with a button, although we can always do “Ctrl + Z” to go back.
If we have several equal images, and we want to distinguish one from the other, or we have an image with a white / gray background, and we want the editing background to vary with the image, we can adjust the color to what we want.
This color does not affect the image at all, it has simply been designed to differentiate the background image and make it stand out.
To see all the editing options available in this program, we can do so by accessing the “Edit” section in the panel. As shown below, there are many possibilities that we have and varied.
