I like this feature. I started writing about the VOB Viewer in early July of this year.

Learn more about the feature in the SL Knowledge Base.

Access the feature via your inventory. You’ll see a new tab. (Top yellow arrow.)

Unless you have an image already in inventory you’ll need to upload an image to use… that costs L$10. So, I’ll be particular about which outfits I put into the image catalog.

You probably notice it isn’t purely an alphanumeric sort. It sorts outfits with an image ahead of those without an image. It is alphanumeric in the groups of with-images and without-images.

 

I’ve written about VOB before. I also expect to see more articles on it now that it has released. It is intuitive to use. So, I don’t see any point in repeating instructions on how to use it. You can search on ‘VOB” or ‘visual outfit browser’ in the upper right to find my articles.

It will be interesting to see if third party viewers make any BIG improvements.
