How to browse through all images from different subfolders

The problem: You want to display all images from different subfolders (subdirectories) in a flat view (instead of having to navigate to each folder).

One solution using IrfanView

  1. Download, install and run IrfanView.
  2. Drag and drop the parent folder from Windows Explorer into the IrfanView window, which opens IrfanView Thumbnails.
  3. Right-click on the parent directory and select “Load thumbs from all subfolders”:

After a few moments, thumbnails for all images from all subfolders will be displayed:

DeepL translator now available as desktop app is currently the best AI translator* and is now available as an app for Windows and macOS. This means that users will no longer have to copy text back and forth between their application and the DeepL website:

Just like the website, the app is able to provide alternatives to the suggested translations and adapts the rest of the sentence, if necessary:

The limit of 5000 characters per translation can be lifted by signing up for a DeepL Pro plan.

Wondering why the download for Windows has an impressive size of 135 MB? This is mainly due to the use of the Chromium Embedded Framework, which is included both in a 32 bit and 64 bit version.

*Is the the best AI translator? I think so. Like everything on this blog, this is just my opinion. However, as someone living and working in Luxembourg, a country with three official languages, I sure appreciate a lot.

Alternative apps

QTranslate has been around for several years, is also available for free and integrates several different translation services (including DeepL):

It has additional features like image text recognition, text to speech synthesis and searching in online and offline dictionaries. However, it seems that it can only provide alternative translations for single words. The size of the download is less than 1 MB.
