It's the best image viewer I've ever used. Awesome UI and hotkeys, fast; everything I wanted in an image viewer. Near perfect.

I tested Honeyview with a "very large" graphic file" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Garden_of_Earthly_Delights#/media/File:The_Garden_of_earthly_delights.jpg ), 175Mb.
I was very pleased to see that Honeyview could display the file, but the "zoom" function failed.

JPEGView v1.0.40 Updated

Andrew Lee on 14 May 2022
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 31 Mar 2022
  • 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.

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

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.

GerryB on 2020-09-06 13:42

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.

While reaching for the changelog just now: "This site is now out of traffic. Please visit later." :(

__philippe on 2017-08-09 14:11

Imagine falling prey to its born-again success, I suspect ?
Its Byus.Net host is enforcing traffic choking, temporarily, one would hope...:-(

PS
To the lucky dames/fellows who grabbed the new distro before this recent server hiccup :
a full changelog is also included as a "whatsnew.txt" in Imagine_1.1.0_Unicode.zip.

FYI, older versions still available, check forum topic.

g3ose on 2019-04-17 18:14

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

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.

IrfanView's developer Irfan Skiljan kindly suggested a workaround for the broken webP.dll Plugin under Win XP :

https://www.irfanview.info/files/iview453_plugins.zip

IrfanView 4.54
+ webP.dll 4.51 Plugin (Link date 20/02/2018; Size 204,288 bytes)
+ Win XP
= eternal bliss...;-)

Cornflower on 2020-10-22 10:31

Many plugins were also updated in this version, so IrfanView recommends updating them if you update IrfanView itself.

"Several PlugIns are changed/updated, please install the newest versions:"

Great Viewer.
Open and converts between most graphic formats, has some (simple, but useful) editing features, and now, even outputs (thru plugin) to PDF. Do note that joining several Bitmaps (each in a one-page PDFs) can easily be done with PDFTK Builder (also in this site). This is not minor. If one wants portability one can not rely on having PDF printer (non-portable) installed everywhere!
