New versions of Thumber, PixelZap released...
Tawbaware's Max Lyons has been in touch to let us know he's released new versions of imaging apps Thumber and PixelZap. For those not familiar with Max's excellent programs, Thumber is a utility for creating image thumbnails and HTML thumbnail 'index pages', amongst other features - we use the program all the time ourselves to put together the thumbnail indexes of our test images for camera reviews, and also for help in generating the little tables we put on our pictures pages for low light and flash range shots. PixelZap meanwhile is a program for hot, stuck or dead pixels from digital camera images.
The latest version, Thumber v3.32, includes the following changes:
PixelZap v1.2 updates include:
- Color-coding for comments
- Focal-length conversion for several new cameras (including the Minolta DiMAGE 7 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F707
- Several bug fixes
A trial version of Thumber is available, and the program can be registered at a cost of $18. PixelZap is available in two versions, a DOS command-line program and a Windows GUI version. The program costs $15 to register. Both Thumber and the GUI version of PixelZap require Windows and Visual Basic 6 runtime files, whilst the command-line version of PixelZap works in DOS. Macintosh versions of the programs are not available.
- Ability to use a dark-frame image to correct hot pixels
- File time-stamp transfer
- Ability to correct dead pixels (this can be used to correct black pixels that remain in long exposure
images after after in-camera noise reduction in some cameras).
