    Thanks for the info Nick. :thumb:
    I use this stuff (IrfanView). Already did the upgrade (just before I posted). Still unbloated and good.

    Never tried Faststone, but may give it a go one of these days. Thanks Huupi for suggestion, I'll keep it in mind :)

    I'm still wondering why IrfanView is overlooking the addition of image MASKS, at least a few would be nice, but hey, it's a freeware, so you take what it is and be satisfied right?

    I use IrfanView as my default image viewer though I do have Faststone too. I just wished they would change the file icon from that red cat or whatever it is supposed to be, lol.

    Hello,
    A quick question, guys.
    I always uninstall the previous version and install the new one.
    What's your approach - upgrade or fresh install?
    Mrk

    Hello.

    I almost always do the same, uninstall old, install new, but in this case I did an upgrade. Passed nicely. Didn't see a reason to uninstall the old, as this is not a resident app, just a pic viewer. I have FDISR installed on this PC as well, but I didn't even bother with updating a snapshot... just ran the app and plugins installer.
    As a matter of fact, I noticed that I started to upgrade these days more than before. I have a (non-MS) firewall installed, and I performed an upgrade with the last three versions. I just shut it down before upgrading, and no problems encountered whatsoever.

    Cheers.
    :)

    I see that Irfanview reads pdf files. Can it be set to be the default pdf reader in windows? Also, does it allow editing pdf files?

    thanks

    I think you need to DL/install GhostScript to get .pdf functionality.
    Getting it to work properly can be a bit buggy. I don't think there is any editing function.
    I would advise using a dedicated pdf program for reading .pdf files.
    GhostScript/GSView (Ghostscript's GUI) is a very lightweight program with limited editing functions: text extraction, conversions.
