Navigate your image collection without cataloging it, using simple navigation techniques to zoom in and out of multiple image directories.
Ben Bederson, Windsor Interfaces president and CEO, announced the release of PhotoMesa, a new $20 shareware photo browser.
PhotoMesa is a zoomable image browser, Bederson said, allowing you to view multiple directories of images at once. Simple commands navigate through the space of images, so you can focus on browsing.
According to the company, "PhotoMesa introduces two new layout algorithms -- Quantum Treemaps and BubbleMaps to layout the images on the screen, using space efficiently while showing the groups the images are in."
Bederson said PhotoMesa "requires only images on disk, and does not require any annotation, importing to a database, or other organization."
- Runs on Windows, Macintosh, Linux, etc.
- Easy to get started
- Browse hundreds of photos at once
- Find all the photos on your hard drive
- Open GIF, JPEG and PNG images
- Preview in place on mouse over
- Drag and drop to reorganize photos

"The interface lets you concentrate on the images, without having to manage scrollbars, menus, or pop-up windows," Bederson said.
