It is similar to the desktop tutorial video except we're getting the media from the camera roll. Note that you can not upload videos in this manner.

Windows: Fast Custom Tagging

When you have a lot of media, finding what you're looking for can be a Herculean task. ZloViewer gives you the ability to add custom keywords / tags to your media at breakneck speeds. Just drag and drop what you want onto the media. Better yet, ZloViewer integrates two 3rd party image analysis tools for your use when desired: Google Cloud Vision and Clarifai.

Windows: Search Online & Bulk Download Images

Need to get a bunch of stock photos quickly? ZloViewer allows you to download hundreds of image files based on a search term quickly and also allows you to specify the type of license you're looking for.

Maybe you have 5,000, 10,000 or more media files spread across different storage media. Drop it all in one place and then allow ZloViewer to sort through, organize, and normalize that media according to your desires.

Maybe you've already got a photo and want others like it, or to try to find out where a photo was taken. Utilizing ZloViewer's reverse image search feature makes it painless.

Working within a ZloImage, ZloViewer can quickly give you visual feedback of images that are exactly the same or are similar at varying degrees of sensitivity.

Windows: AI Media Tagging

You can manipulate keywords within a ZloImage as above our within the main application directory view of ZloViewer.

Windows: Fast Bulk Editing

The principle of a ZloImage is to cram all your media into the size of the user's viewport. But what about working with a large number of files? How can you possibly do this with 100 or 200 images? ZloViewer implements up to 9 "subzlos" for every ZloImage you create and spreads the media across all of them so that you can work with a smaller subset at will. Here we demonstrate the same principles as above with a set of 100 images and a ZloImage size of 1024x768. Subzlos are utilized to accomplish this.

Windows: Share the way YOU Want

Directly from the ZloViewer application you can share your media the way you want, with a variety of options to restrict or grant access and permissions. In the first part of this video we set the defaults sharing settings that are used when creating a ZloImage through the application or web interface. Then we upload to ZloViewer and view the result.

Windows: Basic Non-Destructive Editing

Working with a lot of media files often involves three basic editing tasks--cropping, removing unwanted photos and rotating. ZloViewer gives you the tools to do this faster than ever before. Here we demonstrate how to quickly do this with 20 files, but the principles for larger sets of media are the same. Best of all, unless you specifically tell ZloViewer to enter destructive mode (keyboard shortcut Ctrl-D) a backup of the original is made and you can restore one or all at your convenience.

We are using actual data from my own media collection consisting of a Photos folder that has a large amount of pictures and videos going back to 2003, a Photo Other folder that has random unorganized media and photo projects and download of all my media that is stored in Google Photos that was downloaded using Google Takeout.
