Projects / Pho


Pho is a lightweight utility for viewing, rotating, or deleting large numbers of images quickly, and making notes about what to do with each of them. It is particularly useful for processing hundreds of images after uploading them from a digital camera.

    Release Notes: This release adds Keyword mode, slideshow mode, and a PHO_REMOTE environment variable. It swaps -f and -F. exif/Makefile has been simplified to work on FreeBSD and other systems where make is non-GNU make. The list next/prev code has been changed to hopefully fix a bug where pho would get confused and cycle from the last image back to the first. A lot of performance and stability work has been done.

      Release Notes: Several useful new features were added. Lots of bugs were fixed. Stability, focus handling, and window management were improved. A "presentation mode" was added, which sets the application to be fullscreen with no window borders or mouse pointer. The PHO_ARGS environment variable was added for default arguments. The user can now zoom in or out (to double or half size).

            Release Notes: Code cleanups, and changes to the handling of the notes structures. It might also have fixed a random crash that has been seen once. A bug where image rotations were wrong when going backward was also fixed.
