Viewer2 is a free image viewer and a searchable image database that tries to do things a bit differently, combining the freedom of the real world and the power of computers. Viewer2 does not leave the user or the computer out of the equation, using the best features of both.
Viewer2 is also very powerful for quickly sorting uncategorized images.
Viewer2 is both lightweight and robust. It provides a modern user interface that is well suited for quick organization of files based on their physical location on the screen. Just like you would pile photos on the workdesk in real life.
As any modern catalog should, Viewer2 supports tags. Tags are fully searchable and adding them is quick and simple.
Viewer2 has a database which allows you to track and search your images with similar queries you use to search the web every day. The search is simple but very powerful. You can search for files based on their file name, location, size and so on.
You are not restricted to a normal list-style view of the images. You will see all of the folder or all the search results at once. You are free to navigate and zoom in the view to take a closer look. This allows for a very fast way to pick images with your own eyes.
You can treat the images as you would handle photos in the real world: move images of similar subjects into one pile for quick tagging and move interesting images in their own pile for later examination. Viewer2 helps you by automatically creating groups of images it thinks are related somehow. Images can be grouped by their features, including name, location and color.
