Hi all,

Just a quick ask - do you have a preferred default image viewer that you tend to associate with .jpg files etc? Have you noticed any apps. displaying colours more accurately than others (eg before printing)? Or do you simply find one more convenient to scroll through a folder of images?

On some machines I use FastStone Image viewer while on others I use VuePrint.
I almost never use one of the larger/havier applications as my viewer (Lightroom, photoshop etc).

Hello Hedley!

PhotoMechanic is my favourite, followed by the good old Image Viewer in XP. I use PhotoMechanic as my primary tool in my workflow for making selections, adding captions and FTP'ing. This is followed by Photoshop for very basic changes, crop etc.

I use BreezeBrowser Pro; it is based on the Canon SDK so the code is optimized for Canon cameras and it shows. The software opens JPEGs and Canon RAW files very quickly and do not cache images like some other apps so its speedy. Plus it has the ability to display focus points, which is a significant advantage when evaluating images.

After years of using VuePrint, I have recently started using Nero Photo Snap.

another FastStone user. Its a great application that does more than just view files. Even has a handy dandy option for adding notation arrows to an image if trying to point out a particular subject/object.

Me too. It is color managed too, so color is accurate for any working space.

well that depends. for RAW I use lightroom. For jpegs I use ACDSee as it looks like the default windows viewer. For getting more indepth stuff and cats and searching I open up Elements.
