As the title says....what do you guys use?
tried XNview but didn't like the interface so much
FastStone ImageViewer is quite good
Thanks, ill download it now
I use IrfanView. I've tried others but always come back to it. If you want something that's highly configurable and has the ability to be extended with plugins, this is it. There's a learning curve if you wanna get the most out of it, so if you don't want the hassle probably should go with something else.
i've noticed there can be quite a bit of differences between some of these image viewers when it comes to the gamma/contrast when displaying images.
I ended up using IrfanView as well as I liked its simplicity and ability to display animated GIFs
I initially tried Picasa and liked its interface and effects but it doesn't support animated GIFs! How sad! At this day and age to have a pic viewer that doesn't support animated GIFs
I use the free version of Zoner Photo Studio. While it does the job quite well, the problem I have with this and the other programs mentioned here, is that they are much more than just image viewers.
I want a program which is solely an image viewer with absolutely no extras.
Very good between no-pro viewers
You may want to try Nexus Image. This is what I set Windows to use when opening all graphics files. Use page up and down to move through images (more options under menu - circle in upper left of window).
I've tried several. I liked FastStone Image Viewer well enough I donated to it (which is something I don't always do.)
I'm using IrfanView, and I'm very happy with it.
For me, I like Irfanview because it loads quickly. But I probably use faststone maxview more often than anything else. Maxview was free up to version 2.1 which works fine on windows 7.
For more images I like the last free version of ashampoo.
it's very cool
portable open source and doesn't open only jpg
very fast and tiny ram footprint
you can edit the photos and save in a database inside the program folder
set in the JPEGView.ini StoreToEXEPath=True , so it saved changes in the program folder ,not destructive mode
Faststone Image Viewer here.
XnView...the best for me from many years due its many useful features, simplicity and gui that is similar to old third version of ACDSee
