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 (including WebP Lossless). 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.

Interesting tool, good looks & good functionality - BUT: It lacks a "save as" button, so, be careful when saving. Best copy the original before editing.

Kees Langeveld 2010-07-17 17:05

Save as is available as "Save processed image... (CTRL+S)" in the right click menu

the fastest jpeg viewer, the best!
one thing you need to do is to associate it to jpg, that's it

JPEGView doesn't seem to remember the last used directory after I reboot. Is this a bug? or have I overlooked a setting in the .ini file?

David 2011-02-18 22:23

Meks: The 'Save to' button on the panel only saves the processing parameters to JPEGViews internal parameter DB. It's not touching the pixel data of your image. With the 'Remove from' button it's possible to delete the database entry and you will see the image as before.

V1.0.22.1

Once you've read the help file and learned the keyboard shortcuts, etc., JPEGViewer is amazingly fast and flexible. I've now set it up as my default viewer for all the image formats I use. It will not play animated GIFs, but I simply get JPEGView to open the GIF file in XnView if the image is of the animated type.

V1.0.26

outskirter: how do you do that? I couldn't find any settings for gif files in the jpegview.ini

V1.0.26

JPEGView will open GIFs when you use the file open dialog, but I set it up as a default application in Windows itself (right-click a GIF file in Explorer, etc.).

To open an image in an external app (whether it's a GIF or otherwise), I edited JPEGView.ini, which has the instructions commented right in the file. Look at the bottom of the INI file. Here's what my new entry looks like (with the name changed to protect the innocent. LOL):

UserCmd3="KeyCode: X Cmd: 'C:\Users\MyName\Documents\Apps\XnView\XnView.exe %filename%'"

So if I press X while viewing a GIF in JPEGView, the image will open in XnView (without closing JPEGView).

Similarly, if I want to open an image in my alternate image editor, I press Y:

UserCmd4="KeyCode: Y Cmd: 'C:\Users\MyName\Documents\Apps\StylePix\StylePix.exe %filename%'"

As you can see, I keep all my programs in My Documents, which makes them much easier for me to manage, esp. because they don't require installers.

V1.0.26

Every once in a while you come across a program that you think might change your life. This is one. I set it as my default Jpg viewer. A lot quicker than Windows photo viewer, automatically displays full screen photo (=bigger pictures when browsing), and honours EXIF rotate tags. Wish I had it 10 years ago.

v1.0.27

outskirter 2013-03-18 04:47

@turionaltec: Actually, anything is quicker than Windows photo viewer, but yes, JPEGView is a great app, and incredibly versatile for its size.

v1.0.28

outskirter 2013-04-21 17:44

Just tried the update. The support for animated GIFs was a welcome addition, because up until now I had to open GIFs in another program to view the animations. This app just keeps getting better!

v1.0.29

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.

v1.0.35.1

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.

v1.0.35.1
