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.

I've been using this program for many years. I also have set this as my default Jpg viewer. It is super fast, preloads the next image before you view it so there is no white screen flash between images.
- Fastest image viewer I have ever used
- Great for a quick touch-up to my wallpaper images
- I use this to view comic books, it has the easiest image navigation
- Zoom on demand with the mouse,
- easily move around the image by dragging the square around the image preview window
- I had to crop a bunch of old single image document scans. Using this program and a quick macro I was able to crop and save in about 10 seconds per image.
- I also used it to quickly fix old document images that were askew.

I work with computers so I have deployed this program to hundreds of machines.
- Thank you to PortableFreeware for this well sorted website.

Re my previous comment: This was with the 32-bit version. I have no way of knowing how the 64-bit version deals with transparencies, as I can't run it on my machine. At any rate, viewing them is OK; just don't save them from JPEGView.

Something I've encountered in JPEGView: If you're working with a transparent PNG file, avoid editing and saving it with JPEGView, as the app cannot retain the transparent content and will replace it with a black background. JPEGView is otherwise very good for basic image editing.

You can also use something like eXpresso[1], which has the benefit of being global and singular.

I agree with the positive comments. I scanned all my ancient negatives and slides to huge tif files. This is the only viewer that opens these full screen instantly on my machine. Other progs have more functionality, and I have those, but as a graphics viewer on a Windows box, this is unrivalled.

To put it on the right click context menu for a folder, make and run a reg file as follows:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


@="C:\\Portables\\Graphics\\JPEGView64\\JPEGView.exe \"%1\""

where "C:\\Portables\\Graphics\\JPEGView64\\JPEGView.exe" is your path to the exe.

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

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.

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.

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!

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