Express NewsPictures is a powerful newsreader specifically designed for downloading images from picture usenet newsgroups. The program downloads articles with images inside, decodes them and saves on your hard drive. It filters spam, leaving only those articles that contain real images. The program lets you preview the downloaded pictures and shrink or scroll the picture if it doesn't fit in the preview window. A unique filtering capability lets you filter newsgroups and messages based on keywords you specify helping to avoid the content you may find offensive. The program comes packed with a set of keywords to filter off adult content and you can easily edit these filters, add your own keywords or remove all of them completely and rely on your own common sense. Express NewsPictures can work with usenet groups via a proxy server and supports multiple news accounts. Other features include server authentication support and built-in picture viewer.
