Installation
TTNview is a single executable file. After downloading, place it wherever you like on your hard disk. You can then create a shortcut to it in the start menu or on the desktop. Alternatively, you can put it into a directory contained in your PATH to be able to call it from Windows' Run dialogue just by typing "ttnview".

Running
Run ttnview.exe from the directory where you placed it. TTNview will show you an empty window. To start working, you have to open a directory containing some files.

Choosing directory to browse

  • Click "File", "Change Directory" or Press Ctrl+G.
  • Choose a directory containing files. Special folders (Desktop, My Computer, Control Panel, etc.) cannot be selected. Double-click on a directory or press right arrow to open it. Click on directory name or navigate the selection by using arrow keys.
  • Click "Ok" or press Enter. To cancel selection, and remain in the directory currently chosen, click "Cancel" or press Esc.

    Navigating directory tree

  • To enter a directory, double-click the directory name or navigate the selection to the directory and press Enter;
  • To browse parent directory of the current directory, click "File", "Up one level" or press "Backspace"

    EXIF informaiton presented

  • JPEG files containing EXIF information are presented with picture icon. Columns to the right of the file name show:

  • Every file is analyzed, not only those having ".jpg" extension;
  • If a JPEG file does not contain EXIF information, an empty frame icon is shown;
  • If a file is not a JPEG image file, an empty document (white sheet) icon will be shown.
  • TIFF files are not currently analyzed. TIFF files are shown as non-images, with an empty document icon.

    Opening files

  • To open a file, double-click on its name or click "File", "Open..." or navigate a selection to it and press Enter. The file will be opened in the same manner as if it would be clicked in Explorer. If a file is not associated with an application, nothing will happen.
  • An application opened by TTNview when a file is clicked, is not closed when TTNview is closed.

    Quitting TTNview

  • Click "File", "Exit" (this will require a confirmation)
    or
  • Press Alt+F4 (this will not require a confirmation).
