This feature allows you to view images associated with media files.

The Pictures window is docked on the left side of the man window along with File Browser and Subtitles windows.

You can close or show this window by checking a check mark located at Main toolbar > Interface tab  > Windows group > Pictures button

 

You can have subtitles text shown in the following ways:

 

From MP3 file


Only MP3 files have special ID3 Tag v2 and ability to keep pictures inside the file.

When you start to play MP3 file then image from MP3 file tag will be shown

How to images into a MP3 file:

Use our File Audio Processor software, which you may download here.

 

Image file associated with media file


The images may be shown from MP3 file tag or from a picture file associated with media file.

When you start to play MP3 file then image from a MP3 file tag will be shown

If image is not detected within an mp3 file then the program will trying to image associated to media file.

For other media files you my need to associate text files.

 

How to associate external images to all types of media files:

If you have a pictures then rename the picture files with the same name as media files.

Supported file are .jpg .gif .bmp .png and more of popular formats.

 

Now you can choose where you want to keep your picture files.

 

1. You can choose one folder to store them all in one place. Go to options and set a folder location.

For example:

If you have set the Custom Subtitles folder like: c:\My Subtitles Folder then

When you start play file "c:\My song.mpg" then program will look into

"c:\My Subtitles Folder\ for file named "My song.jpg"

If a file is found then the file will be loaded into a Pictures window

 

2. If you choose not to create one general folder for pictures then you have to create separate folders named "Subtitles" whenever your media files are.

Probably this could be the most useful option.

 

For example:

When you start play file "c:\Band\My song.mpg" then program will look into

"c:\Band\Subtitles\ for file "My song.jpg"

If a file is found then the file will be loaded into a Pictures window

 

While the picture is loaded into a Picture window you can control the picture size and zoom it using the Picture controls view located at main window Playback pages located on left side of the window. Please note that the main  Picture Viewer if is active then has the priority when using those buttons
