Introducing Our New Viewer!

We are excited to announce the release of our new and improved Fold3 Viewer! Don’t let the new, clutter free interface fool you, this new viewer is faster and more feature rich than our old viewer.

Here are some highlights of our new viewer:

  • More intuitive user interface
  • Faster image browsing
  • Easily save images to your Bookmarks folder and Gallery
  • Improved Annotation tools
  • Save in high resolution JPG or as PDF with source information
  • Save to your Ancestry Tree
  • Advanced keyboard shortcuts for power users
  • And much, much more.

In addition to these features, the new Viewer uses the latest HTML 5 technology. This means that you no longer need the Flash plugin installed. It is also designed to be very mobile friendly, so if you are using Fold3 on your phone or tablet browser, you will have all the same great features that you enjoy on your desktop.

When you launch the new Viewer for the first time, it will take you to a brief guided tour to familiarize you with the new design. You can revisit the tour information at any time by clicking on the Help icon on the Viewer toolbar.

We have also revamped our Fold3 Training Center to help you acclimate to our new viewer. Help topics include:

If you haven’t had a chance to try out our viewer, go kick the tires and let us know what you think by selecting the Feedback icon at the bottom left. Also, keep an eye on the Viewer because we aren’t done yet! We will be adding more exciting functionality over the next few weeks.

  1. I would be interested in a book of photos of American Indians (male and female) taken in the 19th Century or early 20th. Should there be one in a packet I would be especially interested in that. Thank you.
