We are pleased to announce the next major update of ImageGlass version 8.0 is Kobe. This important update contains new features, improvements, and fixes. You’re recommended to upgrade to the new version for a better experience.


Breaking changes


New image formats support

AVIF, JP2, CR3, and HEIF are added to built-in formats list. If you are upgrading from older version, you may need to manually add these formats in Settings > File type associations tab.

You also can add other formats listed at https://imagemagick.org/script/formats.php#supported


EXIF viewer tool

This new tool helps you view EXIF metadata of the viewing image, copy selected value, and export all data to a text file.

Exif tool in ImageGlass is a wrapper of https://exiftool.org, developed by Phil Harvey. You need to download the Windows executable version on its website, unzip and rename exiftool(-k).exe to exiftool.exe. Then, import this file to ImageGlass by going to Settings > Tools > Exif tool, clicking on Select Exif tool file link button.

Page Navigation tool supports for GIF

You can step through GIF frame-by-frame with the Page Navigation tool. Combining with the available features, you can select and save a particular frame of GIF, pause and resume the animation, or export all frames to files.


Faster loading time for RAW formats

ImageGlass Kobe uses OpenMP version of Magick.NET library, which performs a multithreaded operation on an image to increase the performance for the 64-bit version. The obvious improvement can be seen in RAW formats. It could be two times faster.


More customisation

ImageGlass Kobe adds more options to theme pack that allows you to change colors, replace or totally hide the default logo.

Besides, you can change the size of toolbar button in Settings > Toolbar. This is useful for those who work on large screens, or touch devices.
