Softpedia: https://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Graphic/Digital-Photo-Tools/cPicture.shtml
has an entry for an application named cPicture v.3.8.6 that is Freeware and Donationware

Web Site: http://cpicture.thecloudsite.net/

VirusTotal Score:
cPicture.exe 2-70
cpp_tiff_png.dll 1-68
All the other files are clean

Assuming that cPicture is not harmful
Unzip and run cPicture.exe (It seems that it is a no install app)
This application is very fast.
It leaves a couple of keys in the registry.

The cPicture v.3.8.6 and cPicture LE v1.6.x seem to be developed by the same developer(s).

cPicture now at version 3.8.8 and it is freeware/donationware.

@Cornflower: Seems like the 32-bit ZIP is also available now. I have updated both download links.

Cornflower on 2023-12-10 08:43

Also note that virtually every new release updates some plugins, and version 4.65 is no exception. Most users may want to go to https://www.irfanview.com/plugins.htm and download the 32- or 64-bit package, and dump them into the Irfanview Plugins subdirectory.

Cornflower on 2024-04-05 13:40

I notice in 4.67 that the OCR plugin is updated. It suggests using the Tesseract OCR, which I suspect is not portable. When I test it I will be looking to see if it can be made portable, and if it works with 32-bit Irfanview (there are a number of limitations with the 64-bit Irfanview so I am staying there).

I use it since W98. Very easy copy/paste/crop/resize/scan/print/sharpness and many other things.
Dont have a pen/filler. Not a full img editor but very easy and has many options.
Fully work is done with xnview, mspaint(for pen) and PaintDotNet for layers.(except for the layers that xnview does not have, everything is easier with xnview)

JudyGarland on 2020-10-22 05:38

XnView is not Windows XP compatible anymore. In order to make it work with XP, replace libwebp.dll (plugin folder) with with webp.dll (xnview.com/download/plugins/webp.zip).

JPEGView v1.3.46

Ennovy on 8 Oct 2023
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Oct 2023
  • 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.

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.

nineascii on 2023-03-25 11:01

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.

FileHandler on 2023-08-06 15:29

I fully agree with everything nineascii said about it. I've also been using it for many years, so glad that development continues. It now supports AVIF and WEBP etc.

The customizing options are superb, if you are willing to invest some time into the config files. You can set your own key shortcuts, assign macros, copy/move files on the fly, set up your own external editors and apps to hand over pics.

it is version 7.0 right now, is portable and free
great viewer, fast and lite. some good lossless transformations
use it as is, support is dead.
take care, thumbnail database is not big enough, optimisation of thumbnail database will clear most thumbs. resizing thumbnails will clear all database so using Tag section is completly useless. (tags are saved on thumbnail database)
Still one of top 3 in my image viewers.
it use SageThumbs https://sourceforge.net/projects/sagethumbs/
to manage .eps files

gcb43 on 2022-04-04 12:55

I fully agree with Miklo, having used FastStone for several years, I really like it: does everything I want almost intuitively.I still use version 6.4 . Tried to use the last version 7.6 but reversed to the previous one because in the last release there is a bug in the Multi-Page File Builder to created an Animated GIF (Alt+M):. the resulting GIF file shows only the first 2 loaded images then stops.
