Overview

The trend that we see nowadays is for software developers to bundle as much features and options into their software products as they can in order to make them more inviting than their competitors. As a result, interfaces get more complex, more and more features are added and with every version, the entire application is just a shadow of what it is supposed to be. A simple application that manages to perform complex tasks is called FuturixImager and it is a customizable and compact image viewer. Simple, yet powerful, it is an excellent tool that boasts plenty of useful features that you will surely love. Let’s analyze the feature of FuturixImager in this quick review! Let’s kick it off!

Installation

The installation process of FuturixImager is simple and straightforward. At just 1MB in size, you will instantly download the setup kit unless you’re still on dial-up, of course. If this isn’t the case, you will enjoy a quick download and a fast installation process. FuturixImager supports all of the available versions of Windows since 2000 onwards and you should be happy to find out that it doesn’t come with adware/spyware or other programs installed.

Interface

A menu bar, a toolbar and the main workspace comprise the spartan interface of FuturixImager. Despite lacking the eye candy and all of the usual bells and whistles, FuturixImager provides its users with a simple yet extremely effective interface that simply screams functionality. In addition, a basic interface is also sported by the built-in image editor. Designed with simplicity in mind, FuturixImager is a tool novice users will surely have no problems with.

Pros

The editor provides two drawing tools; the Pencil and the Bucket, and you only need to press F2 to begin editing an image. The real treat, however, comes with the image filter list that is able to offer Gaussian Blur, Antialias, Mosaic, Red Eye Removal, Solarize and a lot more! The high number of resize methods (11) is another highlight of FuturixImager. You can also use this tool in order to capture your entire desktop or just a specific window. FuturixImager can also handle pictures from a scanner or a digital camera.

The best thing about FuturixImager is that a world of plugins awaits you and, thus, its functionality can be greatly augmented.
