Thumbnail gallery control for .NET WinForms (C#, VB.net). ListView-like image loader, image viewer and image browser component.
Better Thumbnail Browser is a WinForms control for displaying and loading (mostly) image thumbnails. Thumbnails are viewed in listview-like image gallery.
Viewing and loading image thumbnails is a sophisticated task, so this .NET control does these things for you, right out of the box:
Because Better Thumbnail Browser inherits from feature-rich Better ListView, it is feature-packed and supports many advanced features that no other thumbnail control can offer (for example: Multi-column sorting, Multi-line text, Groups, Three-state checkboxes and many more).
It is the ultimate image loader, viewer and browser control for .NET.
The biggest advantage of Better Thumbnail Browser control for .NET is that it saves you development time.
For many projects where GUI is important, Better Thumbnail Browser can significantly cut development time. The complex logic of loading, displaying and viewing the thumbnails is done automatically for you. This not only saves you time, but also provides the end-user with a smooth, polished experience with no flickering or glitches - if you were to implement such polished experience yourself, it would be a considerable investment.
Furthermore, you will save time thanks to many inbuilt features that work out of the box, such as sorting or item reordering.
Also, full designer support allows you to do many customizations with zero code.
Better Thumbnail Browser comes with numerous samples with full source code, and with excellent documentation with examples.
Finally, optional Priority support can be purchased with the Better Thumbnail Browser control, which entails you to custom code samples and more.
