Editors' review

Vallen Jpegger is a fast, free, efficient image viewing tool that is capable of displaying virtually any kind of image file (more than 40 file types) as well as music, sound, and other files. It supports lossless JPEG rotation, so you can orient your snapshots without losing any data or clarity. It has fully scalable print support, a command-line option, slideshow mode, and a screenshot tool. It runs in both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows versions, including Windows 7. It also offers a huge range of language options, with more added all the time. It's designed for quickly browsing and searching huge libraries of images and files.

The Vallen Jpegger setup wizard offers three choices: the Default Layout, which always displays images in the large pane, and the Flipped thumbnails view, which displays the tree view; there's also an MP3 Music Explorer, which plays, organizes, and modifies music files. We selected the thumbnail view, though tabs let you easily toggle between thumbnails and main view or between the Image Viewer and the MP3 Explorer in any installation; the only difference is which tab appears first in the order. The tool's interface has a familiar Windows look and feel, with a full set of control icons that let you quickly print, search, flip, scale, and zoom images; capture screenshots; flip thumbnails; and more. There's even an icon titled How to Play Sounds that calls up a detailed Help page dedicated just to playing music and sound files via the MP3 Music Explorer. In fact, the Help menu offers more than just a good, searchable Help file: there's the Sound Interface, Setup Sequence, contact information, and other useful entries. We browsed to and opened several folders and images. Of special note is the lossless JPEG rotator; most image viewers can rotate JPEGs, but few actually contain the algorithms required to rotate an image without some data loss, hence the "lossless" descriptor. You can also make Jpegger your default viewer for JPEGs and other image files, if you prefer.

Vallen thinks Jpegger belongs on every PC. We concur. Sooner or later, you'll encounter some weird file type that you can't view in Explorer or other common tools. Jpegger can handle it.

    "Didn't work for me"

    April 06, 2011   |   By LadyDogHaven

    Version: Vallen JPegger 5.62

    Pros

    Easy install and operation

    Cons

    Wouldn't open multi-page TIFF files from gov agency

    Summary

    I would keep it if it worked for my scenario - none of the 15 or so apps I tried would open the gov't TIFF files

    "A good viewer and music player"

    October 21, 2010   |   By cesarinternational

    Version: Vallen JPegger 5.62

    Pros

    You do not need to use Windows Explorer to look for files. It also has a sound player. Lossless rotation of image files.

    Cons

    A little cumbersome to go from viewing one file to the other. The size of the image is reduced because some space is taken by the explorer menus the program has (but you can double click on an image to see it it full size).

    Summary

    When I installed the program I associated the file types it mentioned. Now when I click on one of those file types (such as a bmp file) I get an error message that says that Windows cannot find the file (I just click Ok on that), but the program opens and displays the file (or it is minimized and when maximized yo could see the file).

    I love the Left and Right browsing that Windows Media Player used. I could press the Left or Right keys on the keyboard and I will be able to go to the next page. On Vallen JPegger you have to click on little buttons and it takes longer to go from one image to the other for compressed files (Windows Media Player is faster with that), not with bmp files. In Vallen JPegger you can also go from one file to the other by clicking on the explorer list and pressing the down or up keys on the keyboard instead of the left and right keys. One good thing is that you do not need to use Windows Explorer to look for the files because the program already has a window for the folders and a window for the files. I like that the program can also pay music files. You just need to tell it where to look (it does not default to the Windows music directory. I really like that you can rotate images without loosing resolution. You can also view the images full size and press the up and down keys to go to the next or previous one in full size.

    "Best Image Viewer!"

    October 17, 2010   |   By DoubleDeckerBus

    Version: Vallen JPegger 5.62

    Pros

    Fast and convenient! Allows you to view multiple directories of pictures in full size very conveniently.

    Cons

    Cannot set full-size (1:1) viewing as default, though not a major inconvenience.

    Summary

    Just one click on a thumbnail to view an image in full size in a different pane. Most other viewers (FastStone, Irfanview) will require a doubleclick to open a thumbnail to view in a different window, and you have to close the window to continue. Or you can only preview in a small size-to-fit-window without doubleclicking. Not with JPegger. Configurable thumbnail size, multiple views, easy image manipulation. Keyboard shortcut available for most functions (that's important to me as many softwares today are mouse-only).

    "easy to use - makes it easy to review tons of photos"

    June 16, 2010

    Version: Vallen JPegger 5.62

    Pros

    Simplicity, and displays as thumbnails all images in a folder. The thumbnail size is adjustable, and just click on a photograph and a full-size or full-screen image (you select the default) of that image comes up.

    Cons

    It's really only good for viewing images.

    Summary

    Great app.

    "Nice program, but too simple for my needs"

    December 16, 2007   |   By chamarith

    Pros

    I am looking for a replacement for Windows Picture and Fax viewer, and this just doesn't have enough features.

    "Long series of error messages"

    August 31, 2007   |   By Greg Lovern

    Version: Vallen JPegger 4.01

    Pros

    Wish it would work.

    Cons

    I'm just getting a long series of error messages when installing it, about things that are missing, until finally I just kill it from Task Manager. I'm using Windows XP SP2. Lots of other apps running fine.

    "Very fast, practical, well designed image viewer"

    July 06, 2007   |   By JohnPierce44

    Version: Vallen JPegger 4.01

    Pros

    I've used most of the others, including ACDSee, and Jpegger is my hands-down favorite. Navigation inlarge folders with thousands of images is a breeze. When you want to save an image, common-sense cut/paste commands make it easy. Images come up in a flash, and scanning through large numbers of them is simple. Somebody at last used their head in designing a product for "real world" heavy jpeg viewers.

    Cons

    Two minor annoyances:

    Every so often you get a "range check error" on every image. They still display. However, just exit the program and re-enter to get rid of this. Also, if you are working on a folder that is being loaded with images from another program in the background, the image and file list tends to "jitter" and you might find yourself in various part of the folder that are being loaded. This is a minor annoyance compared to the stellar qualities it has, but maybe on of their programmers could find a way to stop this. I turn off the background program and the image stabilizes, resuming it when I'm done editing and viewing.

    These are "picadillos". This is a great product! Totally awesome!

    "Brilliant"

    January 05, 2007   |   By mfkyzt

    Version: Vallen JPegger 4.01

    Pros

    Do yourself a favour and get this excellent image viewer. You'll be glad you did. It's very clean and stable, has enough features and opens all the formats you're familiar with - and more.

    Cons

    Can't fault it.

    "Great thumbnail viewer"

    August 29, 2004

    Version: Vallen JPegger 4.01

    Summary

    This may be the best overall thumbnail viewer I have ever used. It definitely is the most versatile, showing eps, psd, jpg, tif, gif, as well as a slew of other file formats. The only negative is a minor glitch. Sometimes when clicking in the thumbnail pane, the program "sticks" there, and will not allow you to click into the folder/browse pane.
