Visions 3D Image Management

I’ve been playing around with a cool 3D Image Management application called Visions made by Twins-solutions.
I like this app. It may be useful to anyone who has massive collections of pictures and photos on their computer, as I do. It allows you alternate ways to browse, view, edit and share photos.  I liken this program to iTunes for pictures. Any teacher who wants to display galleries of images to students may wish to check this out, as it allows unique ways to display and browse through image folders [much more interesting than Windows’ default].  Its most grabbing feature is its interesting variety of  ways to view multiple galleries in 3D.  However, it does come with tons of other features for organizing, editing, creating, and even sharing photos on-line.  As an artist, I’m always looking for quick and easy photo editing apps.  I will have to ‘play’ with this some more, but right off the bat, I like the 3-D viewing features.  Check out the videos on the gallery page: http://www.twins-solutions.com/video.html

This application is a perfect addition to my classroom practice, as I a consistently show collections of images to enforce some of the visual concepts that I try to teach in my courses.
In the screen shot above, you can see that the Visions app allows me to have a dozen image galleries on the screen at the same time.  Simply scrolling my mouse over any image in any gallery bring up a larger thumbnail, and a double click displays the image in full size.  This is just one of many ways to view image galleries.  Image galleries can be displayed in this cylinder view, or 5 other 3-D views.

In the screen shot at the top of this post (click the image to see it larger) you can see a practical application of this program.  I have three galleries on the screen at the same time.  The left is a collection of image of Vincent Van Gogh paintings, the center gallery is a collection of images of a variety of Impressionist artworks, and the right is a collection of images of Claude Monet paintings.  This makes it quick and simple to switch back and forth between galleries and to select images from each gallery to display.   This will often be useful in order to compare and contrast visual concepts.  In this case, perhaps I want to discuss similarities and differences between Van Gogh’s and Monet’s styles of Impressionist painting.
