A simple, easy to extend, parameter driven and customisable Java application that displays JPEG images. An advanced end-user is required to install and amend parameters and create the file that contains the list of folders that contain the images.

The application is started through a command window executing the Java run-time environment. Key "Esc" ends the application. Key "h" displays options.

The application was developed to help people with memory loss as past images can provide talking points for family, friends and carers. Organising images can help family members feel more involved especially if memory loss is advanced.
