Very Nice! UPX's down to ~73MB (Tiny!), lots of options and transition effects, or usable just as a nice graphics viewer ('Space'=Next, 'Backspace'=Previous, 'Pause'=Start/Stop Slideshow) - Settings are stored in a simple text-based .INI file in the program's directory.
Some options are obvious, some take a little 'Trial and Error', but a very nice program to include on CD/DVD's full of photos; Set the options you want, and write a simple "autorun.inf" file (instructions included).
Command-line option switches, 'BlackBox'/bbLean integration, ScreenSaver (with small 'plug-in') & WallPaper mode, MUCH MORE!
- No Editing capability, but this can be a GOOD thing, in some instances! ;)

This is QUITE a nice little app. It's now set to view most of my graphics (except animated gifs, which it doesn't seem to do). That, and its odd file copying mechanism, are my only complaints. Ctrl-C copies the current view (for large images, that's shrunken down). Ctrl+shft+C is supposed to copy the original full size image, but it hasn't worked right here.

Other than that, it is my main browser. It does exactly what I want it to (window shrinks/resizes to fit the image/desktop, and stay windowed, no need to go fullscreen.

Copy comes in 3 flavours: Copy View (current zoom, visible portion) to clipboard [Ctrl+C], Copy Image (current zoom, full image) to clipboard [Shift+Ctrl+C], and Copy File [Shift+C). If you want to copy the original image to the clipboard, you have to zoom to 100% [=] first.

And I think that UPX figure must be KB!

As of this writing the download link is broken.


juvera 2014-10-23 13:42

But you can still download directly from the web site.

@ juvera: Thanks, I updated the links and the database entry to display the separate 64-bit download.

Download link is not working, even from the website.


Midas 2016-01-31 00:02

@ripu: confirmed. You can use (copy and paste full link to avoid breakage)...

Is there a way to view just one jpg and not ALL the jpgs it can find?
I want to use a command line in batch file such as: "ARTSAGE64.exe MyPix.jpg"
and then allow escape or some other key to clear the screen when user has seen enough of the the picture.
Then Artsage64.exe should exit and quit until called again. I do not want a slide show, just simply one picture.

Awfully convoluted CLI solutions ;-)

| c:\>artsage64 mypicture.jpg
| (Exit with..."Esc" key...;-)

Plain batch file:

| REM art.bat yourpic.jpg
| @echo off
| artsage64 %1

Prompting batch file :

| REM artp.bat (type input file name after prompt)
| @echo off
| set /p arg= pix ?
| artsage64 %arg%

See also artsage.txt doc included in the package, where all intricate CLI options will be revealed...;-)
