FuturixImager is an image viewer for Microsoft Windows. Behind minimalistic user interface it has complete feature set of modern image viewer with additional functionality of basic image editor. Unusually though it does not include any file manager or image database functionality, directing its users to dedicated file management software if required.
- Support for both legacy TWAIN scanning API and newer Windows Image Acquisition standard
- Support for fast loading and zooming of huge images (larger then would normally fit in computer RAM)
- Unusually for proprietary image viewer, FuturixImager is free for both personal and commercial use
- Plug-in API open for third-party C++ and Delphi developers
The first version of FuturixImager was released in November 1999 as Futuris Imager 1.0 - with incremental releases following quickly during 2000.
In early 2001 a complete rewrite was released as Futuris Imager 2.0 - which featured a plug-in system (according to developer, it was the first image viewer with open plug-in system in the world).
- Lack of Unicode support
