Working with large number of photos

Recommended Posts

For a particular project I may have a large number (> 100) images I need to review and tweak. Currently the process is as follows:

Quickly scan through photos using Windows Picture and Fax Viewer.

When a photo needs a tweak, click the edit button to open paint.net

Make the tweaks

Close paint.net

Return to Picture and Fax Viewer

resume scanning through photos

Sometimes I may have dozens of photos that need adjustment so these extra steps eat up quite a bit of time.

Any chance that paint.net can incorporate a quick method to view photos on screen? The ability to use --> and <-- keys to go back and forth (like Picture and Fax Viewer) would be invaluable... something that lets me quickly scan through, click a button to make a quick adjustment or three, save (without the confirm settings dialogue) and resume flipping through the pictures would be great.

Sounds like what you want is ACDsee, http://www.acdsystems.com/

Not that what you want wouldn't be useful for Paint.NET users, it would just require writing a completely brand new program.

I'm not sure if this will help but if you go to the Open Dialog and change the view mode to thumbnails you can resize the window and see your each of your images to see which ones you might want to edit. This may be good enough or they may simply be too small to show the detail level you need but I thought I'd put it out there.
