XISFViewer allows you to quickly view images in the XISF or FITS formats which are often used for storing scientific images like astronomical photographs and are typically not supported by most image viewer tools. It features the following functions:
- View multiple XISF and FITS images using a familiar Mac OS look and feel.
- Zoom, resize and rotate the images.
- Quickly edit the images.
- View XISF and FITS image metadata.
- Export images in any of the standard Mac OS formats (.png, .jpg, .tif etc.).
- View nonlinear images (e.g., unprocessed camera images) using an automatic screen transfer function.
XISFViewer is available in the Mac OS App Store.
XISF stand for the Extensible Image Serialization Format and is the native format of the Pixinsight image processing platform by Pleiades Astrophoto.
FITS stand for Flexible Image Transport System and was introduced by NASA and HEASARC.
This product is based on software from the PixInsight project, developed by Pleiades Astrophoto and its contributors (http://pixinsight.com). Please email me at petfol(at)gmail.com if you need any support with XISFViewer.
