Release Purpose - First Release of Version 4.x.x.x Series

Release Notes -

First release of the 4.x.x.x series of Multiple Image Resizer .NET. This version has been redeveloped to use the Microsoft .NET Framework v4.0. The same functionality featured in 2.x.x.x series has been incorporated but we've made a number of additional improvements and enhancements including:

GUI and Scripting:

  1. Software now supports multi-core processors (CPUs) to speed up image processing.
  2. Added support to load RAW Camera Image Files (supporting most manufactures including Canon, Casio, Epson, Fuji, Hasselblad, Kodak, Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax and Sony).
  3. Added support to load Macintosh PICT and Silicon Graphics SGI image file formats.
  4. Updated Help File.
  5. Fixed bugs, improved error handling, and added additional code to make the software even more robust.

GUI:

  1. Altered the Border options. You can now have two borders.
  2. Added new Resizing method - Resize Within Dimensions Add Background. The new option resizes and image within the dimensions specified and pads the image to the specified size with a selected background color / pattern.
  3. Added ability to specify overall transparency of image overlays to make the creation of semi-transparent 'watermarks' easier.
  4. Improved the Font dialog.
  5. New Colour Picker dialog.
  6. Altered the File Replace Warning Screen - this allows you to select the images that should / should not be replaced before processing occurs.
  7. Re-developed graphical user interface to use Telerik user interface controls.
  8. Added support for theming the software - there are currently three themes - Blue, Silver, and Black.
  9. Re-developed the Update Checker - this is now built into the software, rather than being a separate application.
  10. New Scripting menu option to encourage users to try the batch scripting functionality. The new menu includes two options; 'Export Profile to Script File' and 'Export Image Files to Script Image List File'.
  11. Improved user experience for users who are running the software at a screen resolution of 1152x864 or below.

Scripting:

  1. Added new scripting function: ResizeWithinDimensionsAddBackground.
  2. Fixed bug in AddTextByPosition scripting function (also affected Add Text By Position in the GUI) which could cause text to be incorrectly placed by up to 3 pixels caused by a rounding error in one of the calculations.
  3. Modified OverlayImage and OverlayImageByPosition Script Functions to accept optional parameter to specify overall transparency of an overlay image.
  4. Tidied script processor output messages.
