September, 1997: CompuShow for Windows version 3.0
We've listened to our users and added the most requested features, and are very pleased to announce the release of version 3, with the most exciting new features ever!
- ADDED "THUMBNAILS ON THE FLY!" The new "Tree View" in the image Gallery combined with an "Automatic Update" mode means that you immediately see thumbnails for any folder you open, and the Gallery is automatically updated to show new pictures. If you choose to turn "Automatic Update" off, the "Tree View" gives you the ability to manually update the Gallery for a single folder, rather than the entire disk.
- ADDED a "start window" option to start the program in either the Gallery or the Main Window.
- ADDED a minimize button on the Gallery and Gallery Update, so that the update can run "in the background" while you so something else.
- ADDED a move button to the Gallery to move, copy, duplicate, rename, or delete files and their thumbnail images at the same time. Drag a thumbnail and drop it on the move button or directory tree to move (etc.) the file and thumbnail. The Gallery is also updated when you view a picture by double-clicking a thumbnail and then push the move button on the Picture window.
- ADDED file rename, copy, duplicate, move, delete to manual slide shows.
- ADDED Internet options to permit display of GIF graphics as they would be displayed by a browser, rather than according to the official GIF specification.
- ADDED a Loop button to the Picture window, to play "animated GIFs".
- ADDED drag with right mouse button to the Picture Window to "pan".
- ADDED a sound to identify corrupt picture files.
- ADDED Movie display size option to enlarge movies on fast computers.
- CHANGED button "style". Add files to a view list by dropping them on the view list button itself. View list button-push picks up tagged files as though they were dragged.
- ADDED a "promote to full color" step to "Save as" process when rescaling.
- ADDED drop-down "history lists" to "Rename" and "Duplicate" file dialogs, "Include files matching" and "Tag files matching".
- CHANGED save of view lists to provide virtually unlimited capacity.
- ADDED the ability to move slide show pictures into a corner of the screen so that you can work with another program in the opposite corner at the same time. Under Windows 95, the Slide Show window is resized to provide access to the task bar at the bottom of the screen.
- ADDED an "original size" setting for the screen saver, separate from the slide show setting.

April, 1997: CompuShow for Windows version 2
- The new Gallery feature is a CompuLog compatible image thumbnail database for cataloging picture files on your hard disk, floppies, CD-ROMs, etc. You can classify them by group and enter descriptive keywords to select and sort thumbnails to either print a catalog, or make it easy to locate an image to view, print, convert, etc.
- A true Midi "player", shows instrument names, file comments, and notes as they are played.
- New options to set the Main Window font and "original size" slide shows, and a "Move" button to provide file move, copy, duplicate, rename, and delete functions while viewing pictures, multi-media and text files.
September 6, 1996; Sedona AZ
Canyon State Systems is pleased to announce the release of CompuShow for Windows. Derived from the popular DOS CompuShow and CompuShow 2000! programs, this state-of-the-art Windows application adds multi-media (movie, music, and sound) files to the long list of graphic (picture) file formats.
Just a few features...
- As always, graphic files are identified no matter what the file name (a GIF is a GIF, even if it's named "JUST.TXT").
- Full support for all GIF89a features, including multi-image "animated" GIFs, transparency, plain text and comment extensions.
- Graphic printing, using Windows printer drivers.
- Graphic conversion, clipping, resizing and color reduction. Save pictures to any of the most popular graphic formats (GIF, BMP, PCX, Tiff, JPEG, PNG, etc.), with image comments.
- Single-button copy to and paste from the Windows clipboard.
- Flexible file tagging, using both the Windows standard ctrl-click and shift-click and tag by mask, such as "*.GIF".
- Display tagged files in a timed Slide Show.
- File rename, copy, move, and delete (of an individual file or tagged files).
- Simple "one-click" selection of file types to automatically associate in File Manager/Explorer. A double-click in File Manager uses CompuShow to display.
- Drag files from File Manager/Explorer and drop on CompuShow (or its icon) to view.
- Display of text files. Automatic detection of UUencoded, XXencoded, and MIME encoded (Internet EMail) files, and single button decode.
- A button push uuENcodes picture files for Internet EMail.
- Automatic detection of "Macbinary headers" tacked onto Apple files and repair with a single button push.
- Parental Controls prevent the kids from erasing or renaming files, or accessing images not intended for younger eyes.
