Yep maybe I am a little late ...
I used EasyEye Picture Viewer and I didn't like the taskbar entry

I really would like Frameless version 1.0.3 the one "+ Handles transparency in PNG files"
but all the old versions  links are pointing to the last 1.0.5 version
any chance ?

many thanks pilgrim !!  :D
ops ... actually I also needed the "no taskbar" and the "on top" features  :-[

I just don't need the second kind of transparency (the window one)

btw I made the shot running EasyEye  and this is my new idea: the avatar near the clock like the upcoming Windows 8 !  ;)

I'm swamped at work at the moment so give me a few days and I'll add those features to that trans-PNG build for you.

@frankell: FramelessAlphaTrans

This custom version drops the "trans=#" switch since it didn't work anyway (but you said you didn't need it).  All other options should work.  Let me know.  Thanks.

First off thank you you frameless its a nice building block for many things.... :Thmbsup:
Here is my 2cents worth of input:
I see in the idea request the ability to place img by X and Y which work flawlessly; would it be possiable to expand that option to include a option to center an image? idea here is to always place next img in center of screen no matter what the res is set to or the native img size. I could write it in batch to capture res. and quary the img for size then do the math which would require some time to think though it all (which might be considerablly simpler from within the exe) ie.. something like:
x=L,C,R  left, center, right respectively and y=T,C,B  top,center,bottom ish.. you get the point ...

on to my second cents worth:
idea exploit the trans option into a fade type load
@echo off
:: Test.bat auto load and run file
echo Loading...
c:\Frameless.exe "c:\test.jpg" x=600 y=140 taskbar=no trans=25 duration=00:00:01
c:\Frameless.exe "c:\test.jpg" x=600 y=140 taskbar=no trans=50 duration=00:00:01
c:\Frameless.exe "c:\test.jpg" x=600 y=140 taskbar=no trans=75 duration=00:00:01
ect... this method is not smooth; it needs to be as it loads img at 255 for a few ms and then the setting called here again you get the idea .....(this option my only seem cool to me so toss it out for a vote and see where it goes) thanks again as you can see I was already having fun with trans option  :D

Welcome to the site, WillieCee, and thanks for the feedback.  Your L/C/R and T/C/B idea is a really good one so I've implemented it in the latest build (along with the ability to specify which monitor to use when using these new parameters).  I'll pass for now on the fade-in request.   :D

Website | Download
v1.0.6 - 2011-09-09
    + Added ability to use L, C, or R for the "x" coordinate and T, C, or B for
      the "y" coordinate.  This corresponds to Left, Center and Right for "x"
      and Top, Center and Bottom for "y."  For instance, you can now use these
      options to automtically position an image in the bottom right corner or
      to center an image on your screen.  (Thanks, WillieCee)
    + Added "mon" parameter for use with the above L/C/R and T/C/B options.
      This will allow you to specify which monitor to position the image on e.g.,
      c:\path\to\Frameless.exe "c:\path\to\image.jpg" x=C y=C mon=2
      It has no effect if you manually specify the "x" or "y" coordinates.

That last idea was great from my point of view as well as I open the majority of images I use in the centre of the screen, till now I have been calculating the image size against the screen resolution and setting the coordinates accordingly.
Thanks WillieCee for the idea and thanks skwire for implementing it.

When I started this thread I never expected it to develop to the point it has but it is one very useful program.
I spent 25 years training to be an eccentric then I woke up one morning and realised that I'd cracked it.

I'm finding that trans has a mind of its own :D 
x=c y=c is not fool proof randomly loads 1 or 2 pics as half offset right from C and bottom.
Has a crash load of 175 imgs prog puked without crashing win with it. (I was torturing it(best was 189) my be hardware dependant.
Sometimes puts <path> to img in upper left corner of img seems random as well (only seen in trans mode)

Hmmm, I worked really hard to make that work properly with any monitor resolution and any multi-monitor layout.  If you can reproduce the error reliably, let me know.

Are you saying you simultaneously loaded 175 separate instances of Frameless?  :o  If so, I'll take that as a win, thanks. :D

Open the images with a program that will let you open more then one at a time.
Crop, resize or whatever, line them up and take a Screenshot of it.

Or my original thought was to use Frameless,
which opens as many images as you want to, on your desktop.
Put them where you want them and take a Screenshot.
You may have to resize or crop before opening with Frameless.

Heh I just stumbled on this today and I like it! When I look at a picture lately it's for 7 seconds just recalling "what was THAT in my notes labled "Mouser-Cat"?!!

But different image extensions kept going to different and heavy programs like Paint.Net and Pale Moon Firefox.

So this is a cute little app!

v1.0.8 - 2012-11-14
    + Added noexit=yes parameter.  Setting this will remove the "Exit" entry from
      the context menu and prevent the Alt+F4 and Escape hotkeys from exiting the
      application.  However, you can still kill Frameless via the Task Manager.
      (Thanks, Jon)

it might be useful an "open with.." entry for the context menu

You make a good point.  However, a context menu item is fairly static and Frameless really isn't meant to be (with its various params and whatnot).  Now, that being said, you could create several shortcuts in your SendTo folder with different parameters set up.

I've found Frameless to work well pinned to the Start menu.
If that helps.

Ohhhhh...you meant the context menu of Frameless, right?  If so, apologies, I misunderstood you.  I though you meant the system context menu (like what you'd see if you right-clicked a file in Windows Exporer).
