Eyes Of Lynx

Eyes Of Lynx is a Web-based application that allows you to share, examine, and manage your photo albums. It's designed to be fast, intuitive, and very powerful. Its key features include an original and innovative interface, zoom and rotation tools, auto-rotation of photos when an orientation is provided in EXIF data (information stored by digital cameras), a cache of images in a smaller/intermediate size to increase display and loading speeds, thumbnail image navigation, and more.
