browse & sort your images easily

Another image manager? Yes, there are many programs to manage images. Many of these programs also have good image processing functions – so why a new pure image archive program? Because we think that image management should be independent and future-oriented. Many editors, if they have a database at all, store it somewhere in the system. They don’t allow a simple backup and above all they don’t allow an uncomplicated distribution of the archive. Furthermore, such a catalog is often unnecessarily large. fotoARRAY works without subscription, even without installation. Just start the program from its folder and you can open the catalog. This works even without licensing information as “free edition” – this makes fotoARRAY the perfect tool to manage your picture legacy. We have tried to make the catalog as small as possible – and still you can see the images also while the original image files are not available.

This window also embeds the  fotoARRAY image editor. With it you can quickly modify a RAW file and export a JPEG file. The editor supports interactive layers. You can use it to optimize color, saturation and exposure and add local contrast or, alternatively, blur parts of the images.

Zoom into IMAGE

Zooming is also supported in the “Refine Selections” window.

ALIGN IMAGES

Align horizon so the image is  displayed correctly in the image browser and in slide show. The alignment tool also works on multiple selected images.

Image copy tool

Use the integrated file copy tool to copy your images from a memory card or external harddrive. This tool can automatically create directories based on the file date of the images files. It also takes precaution to copy side-car files. 

Mobile Installation

Filter DIALOG and - TOOLBAR

fotoARRAY unterstützt Filterung zur Auswahl einer Untergruppe von Bildern. Sie können den Filterdialog durch Klicken auf das Trichtersymbol öffnen. In diesem Dialog können Sie die Eingabefelder definieren, die auch, optional, im mittleren Bereich der oberen Symbolleiste angezeigt werden.

Ein Filter kann sowohl durch Einträge in den Symbolleistenelementen als auch im Filterdialog definiert werden.

Ihre Bilder sind wertvolle Daten, als Erinnerung an eindrucksvolle Erlebnisse sollten sie bestmöglich geschützt werden. Deshalb ist es sinnvoll, Ihre Fotos auf verschiedenen Festplatten gleichzeitig zu speichern. Die Verzeichnisstruktur sollte sich jedoch nicht ändern. Ein bestimmtes Bild sollte sich immer an der gleichen Stelle im Verzeichnisbaum befinden.

Wenn Sie fotoARRAY zur Verwaltung der Bilder auf Ihrer externen Festplatte verwenden, können Sie die Verwaltungseigenschaften (Stichwörter, Alben, Sterne) bei einem Wechsel der Festplatte, d.h. beim Zugriff auf eine andere Kopie Ihrer Daten, in gleicher Weise nutzen. Wenn sich der Pfad zu den Bildern aus irgendeinem Grund geändert hat, können Sie in der Datenbank den Pfad ändern, den fotoARRAY verwendet.

Immer wenn Sie keinen Zugriff auf Ihre externe Festplatte haben, können Sie trotzdem kleinere Versionen Ihrer Bilder ansehen. Diese werden in einer Vorschaudatenbank stark kmprimiert gespeichert, die beim Import der Bilder von fotoARRAY erstellt wird. 

Mit fotoARRAY können Sie wählen, wo Sie Ihre Datenbank speichern möchten, Sie können auch verschiedene Datenbanken verwalten.

Your pictures are very valuable data, as memories of impressive experiences they should be protected in the best possible way. Therefore, it makes sense to store your photos on different hard drives at the same time. However, the directory structure should not change. A certain picture should always be at the same place in the directory tree. If you use fotoARRAY to manage the images on your external hard drive, you can use the management properties (keywords, albums, stars) in the same way if you change the hard drive, i.e. access another copy of your data. If the path to the pictures has changed for any reason, you can also change the path that fotoARRAY uses in the program.

If you don’t have access to your external hard drive you can still view smaller versions of your images. These are stored in an effective preview database, which is created when you import the images into fotoARRAY. 

With fotoARRAY you can choose where you want to store your database, you can also manage different databases.

  • in a grid with optimized rows

Filter DIALOG and - TOOLBAR

fotoARRAY supports filtering to select a sub group of images. You can open the filter dialog by clicking on the funnel icon. This dialog allows you to define the input fields that are optionally displayed in the middle area of the upper toolbar.


A filter can be defined both by entries in the toolbar elements and in the filter dialog.
