Parker Software Development Inc. has updated its ArcherPro multimedia viewer to version 4.0, adding unlimited Destination folders and more. The Mac OS X compatible application, which costs US$29.95, lets you view all sorts of still images, including Illustrator, Photoshop and TARGA files.
Select a folder of images and ArcherPro will import them. The utility’s slide shows can contain video files, as well as still images and audio files. When ArcherPro encounters a video file, it will automatically load the movie and display the first frame. If you have the “Play Movies” option turned on, ArcherPro will automatically begin playing the movie once it has been loaded.
Unlimited Destination Folders are now supported via a Destination Set pop-up menu. Destination Sets let you work on several projects, each with its own set of Destination folders. Now you can assign the same accelerator key to different Destination folders, as long as they appear in different sets.
As of ArcherPro 4.0, double-clicking on an entry in the Destination folders list will open a new viewer and automatically load the images. You can even save the resulting viewer as a new ArcherPro document. Plus, after sending an image to a Destination folder, your ArcherPro document will automatically advance to the next image.
Image Information in ArcherPro 4.0 displays above images in a neutral gray background and contains more data than in previous versions. Finally, you can now toggle the Move/Copy behavior by pressing the “x” key. When the Move option is enabled, a red bar appears to let you know that the displayed image will be moved to the destination folder and not copied.
ArcherPro 4.0 update is a free update for registered users; it requires Mac OS X 10.1 or better.
