Photo app for USB sticks
Multimedia developer Tracy Valleau has come up with a unique way for creative professionals to store their portfolios. USBShow is a cross-platform app that resides on a USB stick to display photos on Mac, Windows or Linux machines. Valleau says the app is "drop dead simple," and solves the problem of not having the right software on hand to display photos, art or graphics when using a client's machine.
Users can store thousands of JPG format photos, and display them right from a USB flash drive. One click on a picture and the next image is brought up. The number of photos that can be loaded is only limited to the size of the drive.
USBShow requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, Windows XP or Vista or Linux with GTK+2. A demo is available and the license costs $10.
