    Some of its many features include: Color-code your files, assign status icons, star ratings, tags and descriptions; View images, documents and more. Image marking lets you sort your photos quickly and easily; Batch renaming including easy-to-use keyboard macros; View and edit file metadata; Support for FTP and archive formats like Zip, 7Zip and RAR; Built-in tools including synchronize and duplicate file finder; Calculate folder sizes and print or export folder listings; Queue multiple file copies for improved performance; Fully configurable user interface - colors, fonts, toolbars, keyboard hotkeys, and a full scripting interface let you tailor Opus exactly to suit your needs.

    Richard will guide us through many of the features he uses frequently. For a preview peek of this powerful Windows application, visit: https://www.gpsoft.com.au/
