Shell Picture
On this page you can find information about Shell Picture's main functions. To support the descriptions we have also included some screenshots. Please click on the thumnails to enlarge them.
Thumbnail preview in explorer's menu
Shell Picture is an add-on for viewing image files without running external programs. It embeds itself in the Explorer's context menu and enables you to view images with a single click of your right mouse button. Just right click on any file of the 31 supported graphic formats and you will see the menu item "Shell Picture" with a thumbnail view of the selected picture below. Shell Picture is highly configurable so you can decide if the thumbnail should be displayed in Explore's main menu - or in it's submenu. You can also customize the size of the thumbnail preview.

You can access Shell Picture's preview in several areas: Explorer, My Computer, "Open"/"Save as" dialog boxes or Find Files result windows. Shell Picture also works perfectly with all file mangers supporting Windows context menus.
Shell Picture's image viewer
demo To see a full size display of the image file, just right- or left-click on the thumbnail preview of the selected image. This opens Shell Picture's internal image viewer. 
A right-click in the image viewer opens the image viewer's context menu, from where you can access several functions for manipulating the image preview.
Be sure to check out the 'Minimum Size...' function, which displays images in a frameless and moveable window. This is a nice way to visualise how a specific image would fit-in with a website, document or whatever. Our own webmaster is really quite addicted to this never-seen-before function...
"Open with" submenu
Shell Picture's "Open with" submenu will display a configurable list of applications in the context menu. Just select a file, right-click it and choose the application you want to open the image with.
Image Conversion

For converting image files, Shell Picture provides several methods. Use the [OnClick-]Conversion option in the Shell Picture context menu to directly convert an image file to one of five pre-defined graphic formats.

Select the Convert... option in the context menu to open the "Batch Conversion" dialog box. In this dialog box you'll find two tabs: one for selecting files for batch conversion, and one for selecting the output format - and manipulating other parameters of the image during conversion. All image files previously selected in the Explorer will be automatically entered in the list for batch conversion.

Shell Picture
supports...

BMP, JPEG, PSP,PSD, GIF, TIF, PNG, PCD, PCX, AVI, CLP, TGA, DIB, ICO, EMF, WMF, DIB, PBM, PGM, PPM, RAS, CUR, IFF, CPT, EPS, CAM , G3, ANI, SFW, TXT, RLE 
 
Shell Picture's WYSIWYG Print Preview
demo
The function "Print preview" allows you to display, manipulate, and print a picture via the context menu. The professional (WhatYouSeeIsWhatYouGet) print preview provides useful tools for conveniently modifying the picture before printing it, e. g. a frame showing the edges of a picture or "handles" for changing the size of the picture and its position on the paper.
Miscellaneous features
In Shell Picture's cascading menu you'll find functions for copying the image to the clipboard, copying the image filename to the clipboard (to be used as filename for open/save/print dialogs), and for setting the image as your desktop wallpaper (centered/tiled/scaled). demo
Documentation
Shell Picture is an easy to use tool with an intuitive, self-explanatory user interface. Although all settings and option dialog boxes offer context-sensitive help, Shell Picture also comes with a help file for those who want to read more detailed descriptions of all the features Shell Picture is offering.
