  • Q: Can I display images from folders with Kiano? A: Kiano presents photos from Apple's System Photo Library. You can have multiple Photo Libraries and assign any of them to be the System Photo Library, but you cannot just open a folder containing all your images.
    We have a rather old application called ImageSorter that allows to visually arrage photos from multiple folders. However, image recognition and sorting is not as good as with Kiano, and we no longer support ImageSorter.
