Default ThumbsPlus 9 Released (Windows)

I didn't upgrade to version 8, because the interface was too easy to push out of shape, and with no easy way to push it back. But I test drove one of the beta releases of version 9 and all that appeared to be fixed. Which means that if I buy ver. 9, I get the improvements without the pain. But I guess I should test drive the release version first.

BTW, I remember some people got very irritated with version 8 because the database import feature was not reliable. I don't know if that was fixed.

I had this many releases ago, but now use ACDsee for cataloguing, Qimage for multiple printing, and Irfanview for making thumbnail pages when I need people to review images over the web. I know it has a lot more capabilities than that - so what else do you use it for? Always interesting to see what others use...

I use it to create thumbnail indexes. I use it when I want to review all child folders under a main folder using a unified view. ACDSee can do this but it's harder to set up. I use its slide show for quick review when I don't want to keep hitting the mouse or keyboard. I prefer it because I can set the interval to less than a second. I use it to find duplicate and/or similar images. ACDSee has this feature, but I've yet to figure it out. Also, because ThumbsPlus natively displays a photo in a separate window, it's easy to have windows for a few images open at the same time.

That's what comes to mind now. Probably other things too.

I did upgrade to 8, but lost my catalog of backup CDs. Not sure I care to mess with 9. There seems to be no tech support.

I'm mildly curious about whether they ever got that right. I say "mildly" because they've dropped support for W2K, which is the OS on the computer where I have Thumbs installed.

As Bob says, too, tech support seems to have vanished. At least I got no helpful responses to my repeated queries about fixing the import problem.
