When opening an image in File Viewer Plus you'll notice the Home tab contains the default File Info (currently open and displaying file information, image metadata, and more) and Inspect tools, as well as Save As and Print options. But to the right are zoom and rotation tools, which allow you to zoom in and out of your image, zoom to the actual 1:1 ratio, and zoom to fit. The rotation tool allows you rotate the image to the right or left 90 degrees or rotate 180 degrees. You can also flip the image vertically or horizontally.
The Edit tab contains undo and redo options, Select, copy, crop, resize, adjustments, quick effect, and effects options

Effects are a more advanced version of quick effects. You can apply and customize filters, such as blur, edges, and emboss. You can also apply bump map, lens, wave, and morphing effects to your image.
After editing, you can save your image to several different formats. Click the Home tab, then select Save As to open the dialog. If your save format supports advanced save options, you can click the Advanced button to show them.
Several formats have advanced save settings, such as JPEG, PNG, GIF, and BMP. Advanced settings allow you to adjust the output quality of the image, which helps constrain the file size for saved images. You can adjust the quality and preview the file size before saving.
To print an image, simply choose Print from the Home tab. A print dialog displays, allowing you to customize your printed output before sending to the target printer device.
