History of PictureGo!

The development of PictureGo! started in 1999. After I had bought my first digital camera, I wrote a program to watch my pictures in a slide show. Being an enthusiastic programmer, I continued to develop the program and version 8.2 is the thirtyninth release, so far....

Version 4.1-3 - December 2006

First of all, an apology for not keeping those notes up-to-date. Indeed, in between the versions 4.1 and 4.2 have been released, 4.3 will follow in about a month.

I just have been too busy lately. Next to PictureGo!, so far the only application written by me available on the net, about 9 months ago I started a new project: www.pictureretitle.com.

I have always found renaming pictures an important thing to do, but at the same time I considered it to be an awful job. Over the years I have been thinking about a solution and when I decided I had thought of the best solution possible, I started programming.

It was a hell of a (nice) job. The problem however is, to make your application visible to the rest of the world. I am still working on it and if you are interested take a look at: www.pictureretitle.com.

What can I say about the last two versions of PictureGo! and the one to come (4.3) ?

Let me take one highlight out: rotating pictures. For many years it was my wish to make this possible through PictureGo!

I found a perfect solution in using the command line option of another program (IrfanView - with the permission of author Irfan Skiljan).

This means that you can rotate pictures using PictureGo! under the restriction that also IrfanView has to be installed.

I don't consider that to be a disadvantage because: 1) IrfanView has a lot more to offer than rotating pictures, and 2) Why invent the wheel over and over?

I wish you all the best in 2007!
