Tutorial free viewers and thumbnails for nadeo games images

Post by speedline » 08 Mar 2012, 03:25

hello :)
-this tutorial is to help those who have less experience .
-just some helpful tips and free programs
-free thumbnails & viewers for , all extensions formats ( dds , erx , png , tga , bmp etc )
- for xp - vista - windows 7 32/64 bit
- in 2008 made ​​this tutorial for tmf
http://www.trackmania.com/fr/forum/view ... hp?t=31365
but times change, and programs as well. and sometimes, some shareware programs are not better than free.

exemple: fastpictureviewer, is not free - and there is no reason to buy
idem : for Mystic tumbs, and the free version sometimes had conflicts and could not see TGA and many other formats. (exemple for dds files, you could see white and black pixels)

in the tutorial, I explained the basics. And showed some programs to edit images. that for the most noobs have an idea of the programs and their functions) and not to be afraid. ;)

PS: if not sample all thumbnails.
options folders
or update the folder window "or go out and come again", or restart pc, or check maximum size of file "option" and also check in XnView. also see the difference of sagethumbs 32 and 64. After work well.
- see folder demonstration various ( see video 05:28 ) - ( png, bmp, dds, eps, psd, pdf, ai, tif, exr etc )
in my case ,as other people, I can not see thumbnails, erx format (OpenERX)
wiki OpenEXR = exr http://www.openexr.com/
but I am not alone.
It is not important. because we need the program IMAGINA, and will make life easier for all image formats.
and all options "see screen in video"
wonderful this program ^^
