ThumbsPlus v10 information:

ThumbsPlus is an image management software that uses a relational database that can be customized in many ways.  ThumbsPlus creates thumbnails and makes it easy to catalog, organize, locate and maintain all of your graphics, multimedia and font files.

ThumbsPlus runs on Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista and on Windows Server 2012, 2008, 2003. Both 32 and 64-bit operating systems versions are supported, as are Server R2 releases.
ThumbsPlus is a photo organizing and searching software that includes editing, viewing, BATCH conversion/editing/resizing, metafile support, image filtering, contact sheet creation, printed catalogs, display of slide shows, changing wallpaper, launch external editors, install and remove True Type Fonts, handle offline media and automatically save screen and window captures. ThumbsPlus supports all common digital cameras and file formats as well as digital video.

ThumbsPlus Partial Feature list:

ThumbsPlus supports over 100 file formats internally with many more configurable using OLE or filters

ThumbsPlus can write (convert to) jpg, jp2, gif, png, tif, tga, bmp, raw, wmf, ico, cmp and pcx.

Image Management/Image Information and FINDING FILES:

ThumbsPlus stores its information in a relational database, allowing enormous flexibility in searching for files. Each tab on the Find window allows for searching for different kinds of information, and the Advanced tab allows you to enter SQL directly.

User-defined fields for categorizing and searching
Found file lists

You can search for files in hundreds of different ways including and combining the following:

User Defined Fields
Partial and full file names
Duplicate and similar images
Advanced SQL statements


Searching with a partial filename and a UDF
Finding similar images to a specific image
Finding similar images in a current folder or file list
Searching the entire database for similar files

Editing images in ThumbsPlus:

Most editing features can be done in a batch mode.

Batch processing is one of the most useful and powerful capabilities of ThumbsPlus. A "batch" is a group of files, and batch processing performs a set of operations on each file in the batch. Here are just a few examples of the COUNTLESS batch processes that you can do:

Convert a group of files from one format to another.

Convert several files of varying types, including metafiles, rasterizing to 800x800, sharpening a bit, cropping to 800x600, then resampling to 640x480  and saving as JPEG to a different folder.

Create a bunch of thumbnail-sized JPG files for the Web (for complete Web page building, you can use the Web Page Wizard as well).

Convert a group of GIF or LZW-compressed TIFF files to PNG.

Rasterize several PICT or CGM files, with anti-aliasing, and storing as LZW-compressed TIFF.

Convert a bunch of files to a 256-color common optimum palette ("Super palette") for use in a GIF or other animation.

You can save defined batch sets and reuse them later on different sets of files. You can even call a batch set from within another batch set! (This can be useful, for example, to write two files say, a GIF and a JPEG from each input file.)

Rotate and Resize options
