ThumbsPlus supports over 100 file formats internally. ThumbsPlus can also be configured to support other formats using OLE support from the parent application as well as Aldus Rev1 and Photoshop filters you may already have on your system.

 

Marks formats supported only in the Pro Edition of ThumbsPlus. Other differences between Pro and Standard may be found here (pops).

Denotes formats that require installation of a ThumbsPlus plug-in. All plug-in formats also require the Pro edition, though they may be tested in the Standard edition. Plug-ins may be downloaded from the Downloads page.
Marks formats that require an Adobe Photoshop File Format filter (Photoshop itself is not required). Photoshop plug-ins may only be used in the Pro version, though they can be tested in the Standard edition.

1MOV files since Quicktime version 3 are not supported by Active Movie, which ThumbsPlus utilizes. However, you can download and install the free Quicktime Alternative codec. This enables Quicktime movies to play in Windows Media Player, which will subsequently allow them to play and thumbnail in ThumbsPlus. You can download and read about this codec here:
