When you open a file that is an image file format (for example, JPG, BMP, or ITHMB), the Ultra File Opener Image Viewer opens with the image displayed in the view area.  Refer to the Viewer page for an example.  What distinguishes the UFO viewers from one another is the menu bar and status bar.  All the file functions are controlled in these two areas.  We will start with the status bar as it pertains to the viewing of the image.

Status Bar

The Image Viewer has its own status bar with the following functions:



The Image status bar functions are listed here from left to right:



Image properties:

Image dimension and size.

Multi-page controls:

Toggle through multiple pages (specific to multi-page images such as TIFF or ITHMB), using forward and back arrows.

Zoom options:

Drop down menu to change image display; options include: Actual Size, Fit Image, Zoom In, and Zoom Out.

Zoom in / out:

Toggle the zoom options out or in using the "-" and "+" buttons or by moving the slider left or right.


Image Menu Bar Functions

The Image Viewer has its own menu bar with the following options:



The Image functions are listed here from left to right:




Drop down menu to access the following:

Open: this displays an Open dialog where you can locate and open another file (a new Viewer opens).
Options: this opens the program options.
File Associations: this opens the program file associations list.
List of recently opened files: you can quickly open any recently viewed file listed here (including other non-image file types).
Exit: this closes the Viewer.  If more than one Viewer is open the others will remain open.


This opens a Print dialog where you can set printer options including (from top to bottom): the designated printer, Printer settings, image options, and image layout (wallet, full page, 4x6 in, etc.).


Drop down menu with the following two options:

Convert File Format:
Batch Convert File Format: This enables you to convert more than one image in a folder.

Options include:

Source folder: locate the folder with the images.

Destination folder: set the location of the converted files.

Conversion options: you can include all images in the Source folder and its subfolders or in the Source folder only; choose an image format for the conversion; and select the behavior when encountering a file with the same name.

Rotate Left / Rotate Right:

This will rotate the image to the left or to the right in 90 degree increments.

Bulb Bright The image rotation is not saved when you close the Viewer but you can print the image with this rotation and you can convert the image (even to the same file type) and the rotation will be saved.

Previous / Next:

If there are more images in the folder, these functions will open the next image in the folder using the same Image Viewer and then toggle back to the previously opened files.
