I use it here in DIANA2D and in DIANACarto (the rotate function is particulary fine)
Various discussion boards for XnView and related products

The plugin is based on the GFL SDK, a component for decoding various images which was written by Pierre E. Gougelet, the creator of the XnView image-viewer.
The plugin adds support for the ‘HDR’ format, which I know a several people have requested over the years. For a list of the (many) other formats, and further discussion of the plugin, see this thread at the Opus forums:

It includes thumbnail support and allows viewing various file formats within the program. The number of supported formats can be extended through a plugin system.
This plugin utilises the excellent GFL graphics library to provide support for 161 formats (including HDR. NOTE: some formats are already supported by Opus). It supports thumbnails, the Viewer/Viewer Pane, and conversion from any of the supported formats.
It's not for creation of viewers.Restrictions: You may not use the Software (GFL SDK or GflAx) to create components or controls to be used by other developers without written approval.
The product developed should not be similar to or should not compete with XnView/NConvert (should not be a graphic viewer or converter).
I'm fond of both and know both have been developped by the same person, whom I contacted for a few details. SimilarImages is of great use and yet no other program is able to achieve what it does - sadly the developer won't give out any sources to let me fix a few bugs, but I was able to at least modify its windows to be more effective/useful.MaierMan wrote:SimilarImages Finds and displays "near-same"/similar images
