For people who create Web pages or do other work involving graphics files in Windows 95, Quarterdeck's HiJaak Pro for Windows 95 is an essential addition to the software library. The best new feature is how HiJaak extends the Windows 95 Explorer. It gives the Explorer the capability to present graphics files as thumbnail views in sizes you can adjust. It can also use the graphics file as a basis for its icon.
I like the extent to which you have control of how HiJaak processes these graphics to perform this magic. You can update icons individually or have HiJaak process specified directories in the background or at a specified date and time. HiJaak also makes it easy to catalogue these graphics.
It also builds upon its original purpose, which is to convert graphics files to practically every known format (85 formats are supported in this version). HiJaak extends its previous range by simultaneously handling 2-D and 3-D graphics. HiJaak also provides you with basic image-editing tools to resize or otherwise touch-up a graphic. HiJaak Pro is an Ole server, so you can make use of these tools from within another application.
Quarterdeck's HiJaak Pro in Windows 95 is for those who create Web pages or do other work involving graphics files. HiJaak extends the Windows 95 Explorer by giving the Explorer the capability to present graphics files as thumbnail views in sizes you can adjust.
Pros: Quarterdeck's HiJaak Pro for Windows 95 is an essential addition to the software library.
Cons: My one complaint is it doesn't work with Windows NT, but Quarterdeck is planning a version for that platform.
Price: $479 rrp.
