JPEGView v1.0.36 Updated

billon on 28 Dec 2017
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 28 Dec 2017
  • Suggested by infimum

JPEGView is a minimalistic viewer/editor designed to view images from digital cameras full screen and with highest quality possible. Basic image editing functionality is provided, allowing correction for typical problems as color cast, high/low contrast, orientation and under- or overexposure very quickly and interactively during review of the images. The program can view and save JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF, TIFF, or WEBP. Includes batch rename and copy features.

While JPEGView is not intended as a replacement for a full-blown image editor, the included tool set of commonly-used modifications means such editors should be needed less often.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Alternatively, JPEGView Portable is also available from PortableApps.

Great program for quick viewing; currently my default.

If someone's looking for a similar program with much more functionality/info, try out Faststone Viewer. It opens tons of fomats (incl RAW) fullscreen on a black background, and moving the mouse to either corner of the screen gives handy popup windows for metadata, editing, browsing, etc. I switched to JPEGView because you can quickly go from fullscreen to borderless window, as well as quickly zoom the window in and out, which is handy when doing graphic work with reference images.

This viewer has been my default graphics editor for over ~3 years now. Very fast, lightweight, and minimalistic. I recommend cycling through the included INI file for additional available settings and tweaks.

Needless to say, this program is drastically better than the included image viewer for Win10.

@Wolfghost

tested on win 7.54, nothing written to the registry.

refack on 2016-10-12 21:07

MSVCR71.DLL MSVCP71.DLL are no longer dependencies
only `msvcp110_win.dll` but it's lazy loaded

It again created that log file named log.txt. It contains some errors that occurred some days only. And when that happens, it does not remain stealth.

FreeVimager (version 5.1.0) creates "FreeVimagerShared" folder in Temp:
"C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Temp\FreeVimagerShared"
