EZ-Pix supports all common image formats and has two modes,
folder mode and bookmark mode, which come in really handy for manipulating
images, especially for printing. The modes are in an explorer-like tree,
displaying each image in either filename, small thumbnail or large thumbnail.
Selected images can be bookmarked and those bookmark selections saved to a file,
but you must register the software to open that file later.
Numerous options are available in file management as well as image viewing,
sorting, and printing. A file description can be added for each image, but there
is no option to see the description in either slideshow or onscreen. A list can
be created in .csv format (Excel), but for the images without a file
description, that image's file info is shown in the same column as the file
description of the other images, which is a little confusing. Editing features
also include the standard rotate, flip, convert, filters, effects, and color,
which all work well. Resizing can only be done in pixels, an inches option would
be useful. Cropping needs work, it cut off the top of several of my images.
Images can be sorted by filename, size, date, or type. Slideshows can be viewed
in either single image or multiple images. A very nice feature of EZ~Pix is
Watch Folder, which watches for and automatically adds new images in a specific
folder, but there is no option to watch subfolders. I have 2500+ photos (family
only) with a folder for each sibling, and the ability to automatically add from
subfolders would be extremely useful.
EZ~Pix lets you print the current image or all images, but not selected images.
To print selected images, you can bookmark them and print from the bookmark
mode. Printing also allows you to choose the number of thumbnails per page to
print. Overall, even with its few limitations and problems, I really like
EZ~Pix. It is very user-friendly, with excellent support in the help feature.
