Gallery: The HP Prime PNG/JPG Image Viewer [UPDATED V2.4.0 2023-07-28]
Hey everyone! Exciting news! I've been really into visualizing images on my HP Prime lately, and guess what? No more relying on websites or conversion tools! I wrote this application called "Gallery" that lets you view PNG and JPG files directly on the calculator. No more hassle, just pure convenience! (Since 2015)

Find everything you need in the source repository: Installation, Usage Instructions, and Tips & Tricks.
Visit Gallery on GitHub


UPDATES (28-07-23):
  • Support for the latest firmware in HP Prime G1 & G2 Models.
  • New Options menu to control embedded options.
  • New File sorting method for improved reliability.
  • New File Opening/Delete/Locate methods for enhanced stability.
  • Hide icon file for a cleaner interface.
  • New tutorial as default images for user guidance.
  • Added fit-to-screen feature for better image viewing.
  • Overall experience optimization for smoother usage.
  • Source code released on GitHub for community collaboration and improvement.

Please reach me at about.me/mandresve or email me at: mandresve@hotmail.com
Thanks!

NEW V2.4.0:

Hello mandresve!

I've tried to upload a couple of .png images into the "files" folder of your App and it is not accepting any of them. they are: 320 x 240 pixels. as you recommend.

Hi Spybot,
Try to Right Click on the "Files" folder inside Gallery, then select "Add File". Press "Save" on the Connectivity Kit and check again.

RE: Gallery: The HP Prime PNG Image Viewer
Well done mandresve!

Unfortunately the test image I added in the CK just got stuck in the tree and didn't show up on the calc. Could not delete image from tree and had to remove entire app branch to remove the failed image.

Still promising for further enhancements and features.

Of course it will, I am committed to the development of Gallery until the end. At the moment I'm a little busy with my studies (meaning "a little" as much, lol), but I try to provide regular updates.

Thanks for the support to everyone. Big Grin

When you add a file in the connkit it doesn't automatically save it to the calc. I didn't want it to try sending the whole app every time you added a file. At the moment, you need to open the app editor, make a text change somewhere which will flag the app as needing a "Save". Then when you hit save it will send the app. If you didn't tweak the app data at all, your files weren't sent along and nothing happened when you hit save.

RE: Gallery: The HP Prime PNG Image Viewer [UPDATED V1.0.2]
I finally got to see my images in your App... It is cool.... much more stable.
Congratulations mandresve.
When using the emulator, I also think you should tell people to remember to right-click the Gallery App and send it to Class, after uploading their images. This cost me a bit of time to figure it out.

Wow, after a good nights sleep I wake up to a useful version and will actually use it today to view saved screens from my DSO.

Big thumbs up!

It would be nice to view icons as actual size images. Using the zoom (+/-) buttons causes the icon image aspect ratio to distort when zooming out.

Hi John,
Thanks for the suggestion. Currently I'm working in image transformations to detect edges and select automatically aspect ratios (to avoid aberrations) because for now in the V1.0.6, aspect ratios are configured to be multipliers or divisors of 320*240 (Native Prime Screen Resolution). It will be available soon. Smile
