View Full Version : Monitor viewer software???

10-18-2014, 03:20 PM
I'd like to be able to have "landscape" and "portrait" versions on two different monitors at the same time so I could explain the pluses and minuses at the same time to clients. Does anyone know of a viewer that automatically detects pixel ratio and sends the image to the appropriate display? I've got one monitor in each rotation for maximum resolution. It get's tiresome going back and forth all the time when sampling multiple images. Thanks for any ideas!

I did some looking around yesterday but couldn't find anything that does what you want but in my searching I think, if I understood all of the random things I read yesterday, that AutoHotKey can do what you're asking. Maybe someone who knows more about it can confirm that though since I, admittedly, didn't understand all of the random things I was reading. :)

That's probably not much help but I hope you find something that can do what you're looking for.

I don't know if this will help, but you can take a look:

Wow! Thanks guys. I'll give it a shot and report back for others who may have the same need.

I mean, I can of course render a full image and then make two crops one V, one H but it would be nice to not have to drag and drop the images to the appropriate monitor all the time.

Thanks again!

If you aren't able to find anything and have to resort to moving windows then, if you aren't using it already, you should use the windows shortcut Win+Shift+Left (or right) arrow. It'll move a window from one monitor to another and maximize it.

With WindowManager you can control where and on which screen applications will open - it remembers a window's position, scale, and screen. You can even create rules based on a window's title - so in principle, as long as the portrait and landscape versions have an obvious file name, you could use an image viewer such as IrfanView to open these on the appropriate screen.

Or, simpler, use two different viewers: one for the landscape versions, one for the portrait version. Again install WindowManager, and move the windows to where you wish the first time. After that first time of use they will open on the correct monitor.

Also investigate WinSplit Revolution.
