that doesnt sound very quick cmpm tongue cheesy
but the programme sounds like one very worth having
I wouldnt make it default either, but I really like the suggestion from your second link

Wish list:

    * The ability to invoke this program through a combination of mouse and keyboard shortcut, such as left clicking an image [file] while holding down (shift), and otherwise having another image viewer function as the default viewer for the system. I realize this is unusual but surely it is possible
-
actually that would be nice for lots of different filetypes / programmes!
another option - I know XYPlorer has some sort of open with menu for individual filetypes (that I havent setup yet)

Thanks Phil, so far I haven't had file associations mess up.
Probably or maybe cause vjpeg is not set as default viewer.

I will certainly check out Osiva!

Yes, I'm glad I posted just for Phil to post that program.
Though they both seem to be in early stages of development and certainly potential.

Sometimes I hesitate to post a program.
Cause it may cause problems on someone's machine.
But the freewaregenius guy tried it.
So it was worth a go for me.

I know how to manipulate file associatians manually.
So that really wasn't a concern for me.
Then there's also the auto fixes for file associations.

Seems to affect video file associations; I had to go to my media player (The KMPlayer) and re-associate media files.

Sorry for the confusion... I know how to work with file associations... was just trying to warn others that vjpeg automatically changes file associations for jpg, bmp and gif. One has to fix it manually after uninstalling it.

Ok, sorry if it changed anyone's file associations.

It didn't on my computer.

If it did on anyone's, right click the file and click choose program and you can set the default program for that file type.

Or as in Phil's screenshot, you can click 'change' or 'restore' or 'Advanced' as his has. I guess cuz I'm on xp home at the moment, it's restore instead of advanced.

I still use Imagine for my default, so it's as easy as going into Imagine's settings and select all files list to make Imagine the default viewer. Not all have my preferences though.

The newest version is in the first thread of this site I posted.

- I tried the new Fast Picture Viewer today, and it really is fast, but there were far too many JPG images that were not being displayed correctly, so I removed it again. Is it working all right on your machines?

Yes, its working just fine for me. Maybe its your graphics card that's having problems displaying them (since Fast Picture Viewer uses it for rendering them).

Hello Curt,

The #1 cause is likely to be your display driver, some drivers/GPUs have trouble scaling huge bitmaps but don't report errors, the display is scrambled but the program has no way to find out. I've seen this on laptops and some integrated graphic cards. Please turn off the GPU acceleration in the program options to see if the problem goes away. If it does, you may want to check if an updated driver exists for your card. If the issue persists, I'd be interested in seeing one of the files, you can send it to support [at] fast picture viewer [dot] com

Thanks,
Axel

Welcome to DC Axel.

I suspect you are a part of the team behind fastpictureviewer.
Congratulations on a fine program.
I use quite a few viewers and like fpv very much.

Thanks.

@ AxelR - Welcome to DC, and of course also Thanks a lot for your advises!

- I tried the new Fast Picture Viewer today, and it really is fast, but there were far too many JPG images that were not being displayed correctly,
Please turn off the GPU acceleration in the program options

Yes, the blame was entirely on the graphics' acceleration. But now Fast Picture Viewer isn't really any faster than the next fast guy. It is possible (= "feature request") to add quick-button for "Close image, and minimize viewer to tray", please?

Another question, if you will forgive me: Why must I click Ctrl+Del in order to move a file to the bin/basket, instead of merely using Delete? I really don't like that feature when I have bulk-downloaded several hundred images and am to sort them one by one.

Hello all, thanks for the warm welcome :-)

Yes, the blame was entirely on the graphics' acceleration. But now Fast Picture Viewer isn't really any faster than the next fast guy.

The viewer uses the video RAM to preload and cache images. When operating in "classic" mode it uses the computer's main RAM instead, provided that enough of it is free. The program also attempts to adapts itself while it runs according to the memory pressure on the system but this is not an exact science. Try freeing up some RAM and see how it goes after using the program for a little while.

It is possible (= "feature request") to add quick-button for "Close image, and minimize viewer to tray", please?

I never thought about this. Did you notice that you can exit instantly by pressing [Esc] - there is an option to enable this. You can also associate the program with jpeg files (from "Open With...", "Choose Default Program..." etc in Explorer) after which it's rather quick to open a different file by double-clicking it. I'll give some toughts to the tray icon idea, though.

Another question, if you will forgive me: Why must I click Ctrl+Del in order to move a file to the bin/basket, instead of merely using Delete? I really don't like that feature when I have bulk-downloaded several hundred images and am to sort them one by one.

This also bugs me a little sometimes :-) There is a rationale behind this safety lock, though. On full-size keyboards, you can use the (*), (-), (+) and (Enter) key at the far right to copy/prev/next/100%, and it's all too easy to slip and hit the delete key unwillingly. Also I've talked to a number of photographers and they hated the idea of deleting something, they told me that the original images are like negatives: you keep them all, so I made the delete optional and added this Ctrl thing. I'll consider making it optional in a future version.

Thanks for the feedback,
Cheers,
Axel
