Overview

Diffractor provides simple tools to make you more productive when sorting, comparing, and organizing photos or videos. It integrates with other more specialized software like photo editors or video players etc.

Viewing and playing

Diffractor can view and play a large number of file formats and codecs.

  • ENTER opens a photo or video full screen.
  • SPACE stops or starts playing a video/audio file or a photo slideshow.
  • ESCAPE gets you out of the full screen or other modes.
  • LEFT or RIGHT moves to the next or previous item.
  • Control LEFT or RIGHT extends the current item selection and allow comparing of items.

Files and Folders

Diffractor can view or play files and folders on your PC. Diffractor only searches folders it has indexed. You can add any folders to the index using index options (press control-F6).
Folders

Most users like to keep photos in a structured folder hierarchy. Diffractor has the import or structured copy function (press F9) that can copy selected files into a hierarchical folder structure root-folder/year/date.

If you have files on a memory card, something similar to an import can be achieved by using the 'import or structured copy':

  • Insert the memory card into your PC.
  • In Diffractor open the drive where the card is located.
  • Click flatten or the Show > Show items in subfolders (control-F9) menu item to show all items on the memory card.
  • Select items you want to import.
  • Open the structured copy dialog (press F9) and copy the files onto your PC.

Don't forget to backup regularly, keep your media safe.
