About this Add-on
Perfect View provides the following functionality:
1) Slide shows of images on web pages and in folders (bmp/gif/jpg/jpeg/png).
2) Capturing of page elements and tab content.
3) Smooth zooming, panning and rotating of viewed images.
4) One-click saving with auto-numbering (bmp/jpeg/png).
With respect to similar add-ons, Perfect View has the following unique features:
1) Parametric image filters (blur, opacity, invert, brightness, contrast, sepia, saturate and hue-rotate).
2) Slide shows with randomize, sort and transition options.
3) A background color based on a dark dominant image color.
4) Image transformation by mouse move and mouse scroll, without clicks or in-screen buttons.
The viewer may be started using 1) the button in the main Firefox toolbar, 2) the buttons at the top of the toolbar panel, or 3) the menu item in the context menu of an image. Please note that which/how images are loaded depends on the first group of options in the panel.
Images may be zoomed, moved and rotated using the mouse and/or the keyboard, or indirectly using the image toolbar which appears on a right click (see Screenshot 3). The options panel may be opened from the image toolbar. All options may be changed while the viewer is active.
> The mouse and keyboard shortcuts are detailed in the tool tips of the buttons in the image toolbar.
> One of the options determines whether images are positioned using mouse move or mouse scroll.
> To save entire images at their true scale, press CTRL+0 before saving and select 'No' for the 'Crop' option.
> It is recommended to check that hardware acceleration is enabled in Firefox (see the advanced options of Firefox).
> An animated GIF image can be zoomed and rotated during its animation by starting Perfect View using the context menu item of the image.
> In Firefox Nightly, the file viewer tab may fail the first time it is loaded during a session, but it normally works the second time.
