SageThumbs is a powerful shell extension allowing to preview enormous amount of image formats directly in Windows Explorer by using Pierre-e Gougelet's GFL library (XnView's author).
Please read carefully the following information:
As SageThumbs is a Windows Explorer context menu extension, there is no an executable file that you should launch to bring it up. To use it, just open any folder with image files in Windows Explorer, and then right-click a file you want to preview. You'll see the thumbnail immediately in the context menu.

Great image viewer for HDR images
Good, but could be better. There is only one problem: no other (free) project like this.
I'm really like the image preview in Explorer right-click menu as well as the extended information tips! As a graphic designer, I find it so easy to use. Furthermore, for such problems like can't open or rename file (name is too long prompt), I use Long Path Tool and it works.
Good, very useful software. But : no miniature visible in the windows 10 browser so support about webp image format Thank you for your work
Hi, I would like to make a suggestion. I currently have a large number of TIFF files that are 48 bits per pixel. I would like to view these in Windows Explorer, but it is not possible unless I convert them to 24 bits per pixel. I hoped SageThumbs would fix this problem, but it only displays half of the full image, and the color is all distorted. I think it would be great if this was a feature that you could add to SageThumbs. Then I could view my TIFF thumbnails in Windows Explorer without problems. Otherwise, it looks like some great software! Thanks!
