Read comic books and magazines (e.g. CBR, CBZ, RAR, ZIP, TAR), create bookmarks, alter the brightness, contrast and gamma effects, and use hotkeys
YACReader is a lightweight software application designed specifically for helping you read comic books and magazines in a clean and intuitive working environment.
Intuitive layout and supported file formats
The main panel is kept very clean, so you can focus solely on reading your favorite comic books. The main functions of the program are embedded in the toolbar, so you can easily select them. Plus, when you perform a right-click operation on the current comic book, the utility reveals various options that you can choose from.
You can add files into the working environment using the built-in browse button or drag-and-drop support. The tool works with the following file formats: CBR, CBZ, RAR, ZIP, TAR, PDF, 7Z, CB7, ARJ, and CBT.
It lets you switch to fullscreen mode, activate the double-page viewing mode, zoom in or out to examine the details, as well as use hotkeys for a better control over the entire process.
YACReader gives you the possibility to specify the folder where your comic books are stored, go to the previous or next comic book, jump to the next or previous page from the current comic book, access a specific page, rotate the image to different angles, and create bookmarks.
The utility offers support for a built-in dictionary that helps you translate words between various languages, such as English, Spanish, Swedish, Russian, French, German, Greek, Bulgarian and Arabic.
Additional configuration parameters enable you to select the viewing mode for covers (e.g. stripe look, overlapped stripe look), alter the brightness, contrast and gamma levels of the image, as well as save the current page to JPG file format. On the downside, the tool doesn’t let you reassign the hotkeys.
An overall efficient comic book reader
All in all, YACReader comes bundled with a decent feature pack for helping you read comic books and magazines, and it is suitable for rookies and power users alike.
