Open image file dialog features:
Image resolution and file format information displayed for the selected file.
Preview of the selected image file.
The last viewed image is automatically selected and the file list is scrolled so that it is visible.
The most recent directories from which an image has been opened are remebered in a list and you can go back again to them very quickly (NB, this can be turned off for privacy).
Open an index view of all images in the directory by pressing a single button.
Image viewer features:
Launch the program and open images in multiple ways - choose the one that suits you best! You can launch it from the start menu, by clicking on a file in the Windows Explorer, or from an already open Image Eye window.
Browse images in a directory using the index mode, or using the 'open image file' dialog, or from a viewer window using previous/next image commands, or by pressing down the mouse wheel (if you have one) and rotating it.
The image adjustment dialog lets you adjust brightness, contrast, sharpness (using a true 'unsharp masking' algorithm), hue, saturation, gamma, luminance, red, green, blue, negative, rotation and mirroring controls.
Image adjustments can be saved and automatically re-applied the next time you open the image file - all without modifying the original image file.
File operations: Copy, rename, move, delete, erase. The erase command will wipe the file several times with random data before setting the file size to 0 then deleting it (bypassing the recycle bin) - use for sensitive data.
Function to capture images of the while screen shots or of selected windows.
View images in windowed or in full-screen mode.
Freeze mode sticks an image to the desktop so that it can't be moved until unfroozen - and it is automatically opene again if you restart your computer.

Set images as the Windows wallpaper.
