ImageViewer by Wolkenfels ImageViewer by Wolkenfels
Little Tool to make diashows of your own images using a timer.

There are some pages on the internet that show images for a certain time to help artists doing gestures and stuff. e.g. pixelovely makes a great page for that. artists.pixelovely.com/practic…

The difference with this tool is mainly that you use local pictures.
To use it you have to download the jar and start it with doubleclick. (or open wiht "java" if you have another program like winrar attached to *.jar files).
It needs at least Java7.

When it starts it first asks for a directory with pictures. (subdirectories are scanned also)

From the dropbox (1) you can choose a set time - or you can fill in any timer value in the textbox itself.
(2) shows how many seconds are left till the next image.
(3) if you don't like the image you can hop to the next one.
(4) pause button to stop the countdown and resume button to continue

It was really programmed really really fast so there is more than enough room to improve like
- go to the last picture
- start at the beginning again when the last picture was shown. 
- show the path and name of the picture.

Feel free to tell me what you want, need - i may consider it.


*Edit - now takes the pictures randomly - though the first picture may not be random as it takes some time till the programm discovers all pictures in the folder*

Works great!  Really like the adjustable timer. It handles massive folders just fine too. Thanks for sharing such a handy tool.

Would it be possible to show the filename of the current image being shown? Sometimes it'd be nice to jot it down next to the drawing if you want to come back to it later.

omg wolkenfels, this is just incredible. I've always wanted an alternative to pixellovely, using my own references, and there you go, you're making it! Now it's two things you made I'm incredibly thankful for :)

you are welcome! I am happy for feedback btw - so if you see anything you would like another way or if you find a bug - please tell me. 
BTW - i just uploaded a newer version - should work a bit better - and the pause/resume button is back.

Awesome, been using it for the last couple days.  Is there any way to make it display a random image in the folder?  Either way like I said this is great, thanks a bunch!

Great program, thank you! I personally think that there should be an option to turn off the countdown so its not that stressing and doesnt distract too much, but maybe its just me.

:) but that was the only challenge in it, Alisher. Else every irfanview or even the windows image viewer would do the work.

exactly - you can open your own folder of hand or foot references, make gesture drawings of your pets or open that kind of reference photos you need to be 18 or above to see. ;)

Dankeschön- der fehlende part bei anderen slideshow programmen war die Anzeige der übrigbleibenden Zeit, bis das nächste Bild kommt. (sonst kann das ja schon die standard windows diashow) Geht das bei Irfanview? Dann könnte ich das nämlich einfach wieder löschen.
