Application Options

Various default application behaviors can be set using the Application Settings window. Select image38 from the application tool bar or from the Settings – Set Application Options menu


Application Settings Window

Decode with

This option is a drop-down combo list where users can choose to decode the image with CPU, GPU_OpenGL, GPU_DirectX or GPU_Vulkan. It is used when users click to view image on the Image View window.

Reload Image Views on Selection

This option when set will always close the current image view and open a new image view. This is useful when an image has been processed to say a new compression format and changed visually from when it was last viewed. By default, this is turned on (check marked). If you turn this option off then the view will not be refreshed every time you click on viewing an image from the Project Explorer. Advantage of switching this mode, is that for large compressed images the image view takes considerable time to decompress and not necessary if the compressed file content has not changed.

Close all Image Views Prior to Process

This option when set will close all Image Views in the application, prior to processing selected image destination settings in the Project Explorer. This will free up system memory, to avoid out of memory issues when processing large files.

Mouse click on icon to view image

This option is checked by default. When checked, the application will load the image/model onto Image View window when user click on the icon next to the image file node in the Project Explorer. When it is unchecked (off), the application will load the image/model onto the Image View window when user click on the image filename or icon.

Load Recent Project on Startup

This option off by default, will load the last project you worked on. This saves you time selecting it from the welcome page or the recent files list from the file menu.
