New version of PixVeew was released today. Version 2.0 adds printing of contact sheets. Free version allows printing of up to 20 pictures, unlimited printing available in Plus Mode. (via In-App purchase)
Version 4.01 of PixCompare improves comparison performance by more than 2x. Also updated the minimal requirements to Mac OS X 10.8.
Version 1.1 of PixVeew (new name, changed due to already a lot of PixViewer apps floating around). Added some controls in full screen view that were available in the old FastPic. I’ll add more feature from the old apps, but they will be available as an in-app purchase only.
Using PixCompare, you can compare picture files to search for duplicates or similar pictures in a large collection of picture files. It works on JPEG, PNG and GIF files.
I finally finished the Cocoa update for PixCompare! This was a complete rewrite, so that current and future Mac OS releases will be supported properly. Starting with this version, I’m also going to charge a small fee for the application. I plan to add new features over the next couple of months, including the now missing printing functionality. If you have any ideas or feature requests, contact me!
PixViewer is a simple any easy picture viewer for the Mac. Its main purpose is to browse quickly through a folder of image files. You can also directly move files to the trash while browsing.
The old FastPic was developed using the Carbon library, which is no longer properly supported. I had to rewrite the application from scratch for Cocoa. Over time, I’ll add all past features from FastPic plus add new features, some if which will be available in a pro mode only.
The WD media player is an excellent player for all kind of movie files – but it lacks one important feature: volume control. I’ve hooked up a pair of Bose speakers directly to the WD and can only change the volume on the Bose device. This is very unpractical e.g. when working out. Therefore I’ve created a device that can control the volume via any IR remote control. I use the WD remote control’s up and down buttons to control the volume via two digital potentiometers. Everything is connected to a PIC micro controller that operates the whole device. View the pictures →
A while ago, I decided to build my own Geiger-Müller counter to be able to measure radioactivity myself. After Fukushima, all reasonable priced counters were sold out, so I’ve decided to build mine based on a Velleman Kit. (K2645) Continue Reading →
