Looking for an image viewer that...
« on: December 13, 2017, 06:21 AM »
Hi,

I'm looking for an image viewer that, when an image is clicked, ...
a) will start in full-screen mode (or at least gives the image most of the screen)
b) will auto-resize the image to fit the screen
c) has no performance problem with a huge image folder
[d) an option to rename the currently displayed image would be a plus]

Normally, I'm quite happy with Faststone image viewer, but that only takes care of a) and b) [and d)] - it's a bit slow when it comes to images in a huge folder.

ExifPro ticks all those boxes here.
I see it has gone open-source --
https://github.com/mikekov/ExifPro
I dont see any straight-forward download for windows there though (?)

In IrfanView, press F2 to rename the displayed image.

I'd recommend Imagine - http://www.nyam.pe.kr/dev/imagine/ - portable and you can set up shortcuts to your liking, works great as plugin for Lister (total commander built-in viewer) as well - but it a standalone program (so TC is not required). My 2cts.

that's an interesting suggestion:
I've never been happy with any filemanager's image viewer that I've tried.** And I mostly want a filemanager as opposed to any of the image viewers etc. I mean I want the flexibility of a good filemanager, along with the direct connection to the viewer e.g. want the viewer to follow the sort, etc. as shown in manager.

** Dopus is the best of those I know.

I second  mouser and skwire for irfanview.

It fulfills all the requirement of brotherS. It is one of my must have tools.
