    "Better than Windows Photo Viewer"

    January 2, 2012  |   By eg180

    Version: Free Photo Viewer 1.2

    Pros

    You can view photos with it and they look like they should. It's free.

    Cons

    Even if you have it set to open photos by default, you can't just double click on a photo in a directory and browse through the directory. If you want to browse the directory, you have to open the program and do it.

    Summary

    Look, it's an image viewer. It's not fancy, it doesn't need to be. It exists to look at images. For that purpose, it works fine. Normally, I'd use Windows Photo Viewer, but that program has not been good since Windows XP. In Windows XP, Windows Photo Viewer worked as it should. However, in Vista, they messed it up. The version of Windows Photo Viewer that comes with Vista and Windows 7 distorts the colors of images. It also brightens them some. It's not a good program for viewing images as they are intended to be seen. AS an artist, I have to see stuff as it's intended to be seen, not however Windows feels like displaying it. So, I installed this program because it's free and it works. I can view images as they are intended to be seen with it, with their proper color and brightness.

    "Not good at all."

    December 5, 2010  |   By Razinhail

    Version: Free Photo Viewer 1.2

    Pros

    Install was quick and easy. Uninstall was just as quick and easy.

    Cons

    Zooming in on photos makes them MORE pixelated than zooming in on the SAME PHOTO in Windows Photo Viewer. Very first window that opened up when I fired this program up for the first time was filled with question marks. Funny, but NOT a good sign.

    Summary

    Full screen view doesn't automatically size the picture to the screen. Picture quality degrades too fast when zooming compared to other photo viewers (like the one that comes with Windows 7).

    When placing the cursor over the edge of a picture, you get the "resize arrows" but they don't work. That's irritating! Tried left click/drag, right click/drag, shift click/drag. NOPE! No resizing found. If it's there, it's some non-standard way of doing it.

    Interface is very clunky. Explorer tree on the left, and top portion of the window is the current folder selected in the tree. Bottom portion of the screen is the actual image. WAY too much wasted screen real estate just to display folders!

    This program spent a whopping 3 minutes and 45 seconds installed on my machine. That's it. That's all I needed to know I won't be looking at this program ever again. I should've known better since the only review was written by a hamster facerolling his keyboard.
