Chapter 2
What is ZoomBrowser EX?
What Can ZoomBrowser EX Do? (2/2)
By using other programs:
ZoomBrowser EX gives you additional power when you use it
together with the following programs. (You can start these
programs from within ZoomBrowser EX.)
■ PhotoRecord
• You can use this program to create and print beautiful
layouts consisting of multiple images.
• You can select frames and backgrounds with a variety of
designs.
• You can add text to images or pages.
• You can create original image albums.
■ PhotoStitch
• You can stitch multiple images (which were split and shot
individually using functions like the camera’s Stitch Assist
mode) together to form a single, large size, panoramic picture.
• You can stitch images horizontally or vertically.
• If you shoot the surroundings in 360 degrees, you can later
stitch the images to form a 360-degree cylinder. By saving
this stitched image in QuickTime VR format, you can then get
a virtual view of the various parts of the image.
■ RemoteCapture
• You can use the computer to operate the shutter of a camera
connected to it via a USB cable.
• You can specify the shooting interval and number of images
to be taken, then take images using interval timer shooting.
15
ZoomBrowser EX Software User Guide
■ File Viewer Utility

RAW images.

What is ZoomBrowser EX?
Finding Images and Folders (1/2)
It is important to understand how folders are used in ZoomBrowser EX
to store images.
Where Are Images Stored?
The images that you downloaded in Chapter 1, Downloading
Images to a Computer, should be contained in the My Pictures
folder. As you will note, the folders mentioned above also
appear at the left of the ZoomBrowser EX window.
Use the following procedures to find out where image files are
stored on your computer when they are downloaded from the
camera.
1.
Click the Windows [Start] menu and select [My
Pictures].
Windows 2000/Windows Me/Windows 98 users should click
the [Start] menu, select [My Documents] and double-click [My
Pictures].
If you double-click the folders appearing in the Windows screen
shot at the left, you will find image files and folders with the
same names as those displayed in the ZoomBrowser EX
window.
As this demonstrates, when you open a particular folder in
ZoomBrowser EX and download images to it, or move images
between folders, these changes are also happening in the
corresponding folders shown by the Windows operating
system.

Finding Images and Folders (2/2)
Folders in the Browsing Area and Folder Area
Folders within Folders
Image thumbnails (tiny versions) are shown in the right-hand
side of the ZoomBrowser EX window. This area is called the
Browsing Area. The area in the middle, called the Folder Area,
shows the folder directory much as it is shown in Windows
Explorer.
You can create folders within folders, adding successive levels
to provide detailed categories that make it easy to find and use
your images.
The Folder Area shows all the folders on the computer. The
orange colored folder is the currently selected folder. The
images inside this folder are what are shown in the Browsing
Area.

Using the Right-Click in Operations
With ZoomBrowser EX you can access many useful functions by using
the right mouse button (right-click).
For example, if you right-click a thumbnail, the following
shortcut menu appears.
Right-click anywhere on the image to display a shortcut menu.
A shortcut menu is a convenient collection of the most
common window buttons and menu commands that apply to a
given situation.
25
ZoomBrowser EX Software User Guide
The right-click allows you to use ZoomBrowser EX more
efficiently. After you become familiar with ZoomBrowser EX, try
right-clicking in many situations and you will be impressed with
its convenience.
Note that, in general, this manual does not cover operations
using the right-click. (This is because explaining many shortcut
menu variations would take too many pages of this manual.)
However, there are a few operations that are only accessible by
right-clicking. These operations are described on the
corresponding pages.

Refreshing Folders
Click the [View] menu and select [Refresh Current Folder]. This
will update ZoomBrowser EX’s information about all the folders.
Adding, moving, copying or editing an image or a folder within
ZoomBrowser EX ensures that it is updated and appears
correctly in the Browsing Area.
However, the information ZoomBrowser EX possesses and the
actual file contents can be different when an image file is
moved or copied using Windows functions or edited with a
separate program.
In this case, the “current state of the folders” has to be
checked and updated. This is what is meant by refreshing a
folder.

Supported File Formats
The following is a list of file formats supported by ZoomBrowser EX.
Readable files
ZoomBrowser EX can read the following file formats.
■ JPEG files (.jpg)
Most cameras use this file format. It compresses at very high
ratios, taking advantage of the characteristics of the human
eye. However, because it is an irreversible compression method
(part of the data is lost during compression), if you process and
save an image repeatedly using this method, the image may
become rougher.
■ RAW files (.crw)
This format is a proprietary file format provided by Canon. It
saves the output of the image pixels from a digital camera
without any deterioration in the quality of the image. Some
cameras might not support this file format.
■ Windows bitmap files (.bmp)
This format comes standard with Windows. Most Windows
programs support it.
■ TIFF files (.tif)
This is a relatively popular format. It is widely supported by nonWindows programs (such as Macintosh).
96
ZoomBrowser EX Software User Guide
■ PhotoCD files (.pcd)
This is the format used by KODAK Photo CDs.
Each image contains several copies at different resolutions.
■ Video clip files (.avi)
This is a standard Windows video file format. The file appears
as a thumbnail and movie icon (or sometimes as a large movie
icon only) in the Browsing Area of ZoomBrowser EX. When you
click the thumbnail or movie icon, QuickTime Player starts and
plays the video clip. (You must install QuickTime Player before
you can use it.)
■ QuickTime files (.mov)
This is a movie file format. The file appears as a movie mark in
the Browsing Area of ZoomBrowser EX. When you click the
movie mark, QuickTime Player starts and plays the movie. (You
must install QuickTime Player before you can use it.)
