Twins Visions is an image management software that is currently in beta stage. It has a unique interesting way of viewing and managing images that differs a lot from normal image viewers like Irfanview or Imagine. Twin Visions adds images of a folder in so called boards which are displayed next to each other in the main window of the software. These board contain thumbnails of the images located in a folder. Up to six boards can be placed next to each other and it is possible to view images by simply moving the mouse over them.
A click on an image loads an image viewer that resembles normal image viewers. Images can be dragged and dropped between folders and in a casket that can contain images from all folders. The casket is a virtual folder that can be used to create a custom slideshow for instance. Images can not only be imported from the local computer but also from Flickr. Images that are displayed can also be uploaded to Flickr.
The size of the thumbnails in the boards can be changed from tiny to a size that only displays one image at a time. Boards can be viewed separately as well. Twin Visions does not only offer image viewing functions but also image editing and sharing functions.
The image editor is not comparable to Photoshop or GIMP but it does offer a few quick fixes. It's possible to remove noise, the red eye effect or fix the brightness with a mouse click. Effects can be added like blur or color effects. The current beta version will stop working on October 1st, 2008 and it is very likely that this could become a commercial software.
Update: The program is no longer in beta and now available as a stable release version. The program currently works with all recent versions of the Windows operating system.
