DjVu is a graphic format that can compress color files to a greater degree than JPEG or TIFF standards, this is why this format is used mostly for distributing documents on the Internet due to their reduced size. DjView is a user-friendly application for accessing this type of files.
Clean feature lineup
The software interface is intuitive and the main window displays the contents of the source file, allowing users to easily navigate to various bookmarks or opening another page of the current document.
Perform search operations and view metadata
In addition, users can also search for a certain text word or regular expression within the file. The application can also display metadata of the file, specifying details such as the creation date, date when it was modified last, as well as the software used to generate it.
Not only can DjView be used to open DjVu documents, it can also export them to other formats that are supported by a wider range of apps, such as PDF, BMP, ICO, TIFF, PNG, JPEG, PostScript, PPM or XBM. One can choose a single page to be exported or specify the page range they are interested in.
Different view modes
When it comes to opening large DjVu files with numerous pages, users can not only invert luminance, but they can also choose to view the pages side by side or in continuous mode. Also, considering DjVu’s typically contain numerous colors, a so-called stencil mode is also available (in addition to the standard color one).
The Preferences window is the place where one can calibrate the screen color scheme and the resolution to make sure they can view their documents in the best conditions possible. Users can also assign keyboard hotkeys for various actions, such as displaying the lens, selecting text or images and showing hyperlinks.
Advanced and reliable DjVu viewer
Overall, DjView is a useful application for all those who often deal with DjVu files and want to read them with any hassle.
