    Alternative to Photo Viewer.


    Hi.

    I am using build 10147 now, and Windows Photo Viewer is not working here as it used to. The new look/appearence of the Photos App is very cool, but is there any third party software that can be an alternative of the good old Windows Photo Viewer?

    I want a program/app that will open a photo from explorer, will provide flip/rotate and delete options, and will shift to the next photo simply. A photo library organizer and integrated photo editor etc are not wanted by me.

    Many thanks for your suggestion.

    I have used Vueprint in the past and it is very simple to use.

    I've tried the following (might be more than you want):

    nomacs -> This might fit your requirements the best.

    XnView -> this is my goto tool when other image utilities cannot open / view a file.
    IrfanView -> I didn't like interface
    FastStone -> only installed to investigate , no real use

    Thanks for all those suggestions, Jom an Bill.

    I tried them all, and found that XnView serves the best. So keeping it, and trying to get accustomed with the Photos metro app.

    Thanks again.

    I can't figure out what happened to Windows Photo Viewer, doesn't work here either!

    'Windows Live Photo Gallery' works sufficiently though, if you don't mind installing 'Movie Maker' with it.

    Hi there

    What's wrong with Ms Paint -- still a FREE built in application

    Just set the application as default when you double click on the file from Windows explorer. After processing the photo you'll be back again in File explorer to process the next one.

    Set the default app for .png, .jpg or any photo formats you have.



    Cheers

    Valid yes but , I still like to be able to scroll through a whole folder or start a slideshow if so inclined.

    Hi there

    File explorer can display thumbnails - then just click on the thumbnail -- set file explorer to view as .medium sized icons

    To start a slideshow -- Powerpoint works brilliantly if you have Ms Office or try the FREE APS office

    I use Fastsone image viewer, allows you to shuffle photos if you want unlike all the others

    Nope, not here either in Build 10130. I get a mishmash of junk.

Solved Is Windows Photo Viewer gone?
