    Default Recommend photo viewer SW

    Hi,
    I downloaded this SW last week.. (free for 15 days) found it accidentally thru google search.. and it's great. The best I've seen/tried so far..
    It can help to transfer the photos with size conversion.. on top of that, viewing the photos (I have 6000+ photos) is fast.. faster than windows explorer itself..
    Download and try it and I bet you will buy the SW after 15 days..
    Picasa

    I tried it months ago, looks like a clone of Apple's iPhoto. But I still prefer ACDSee.

    Installed ACDSee and it feels like windows explorer.. slow..
    Yeap, you are right, Picasa feels like apple iphoto but performing much better.. faster.
    Highly recommended.. try it with the free download version.

    I have tried Picasa and iPhoto. Picasa wins hands down. It's a joy to use, but it can be improved further...

    does this software do what iphoto did (something I detest) - imports the pics into the program and thus indirectly makes a duplicate of the images? Space eating on the HDD.

    Reason why I like using ACDSee on both PC and MAC is that it's fast to view and views the images you have currently in folders without having to duplicate by importing into the program.

    ACDSee works even better on the MAC due to the technology employed from QuickTime Tech.

    Hey.. It's the best for Windows OS.. Very very amazed with the speed the photos refreshed.. even if you have thousands of photos in your HDD.
    Great stuff..

    Yea, but it does lotsa pre-scaning of images in your com and make thumbnail files... I was annoyed having soo many hidden files created... tat's where the speed comes from. but overall, love the UI.

    Another good one. Using it too.

    Default Irfanview

    I use irfanview too and it's really good and fast. Only thing is, can't see any colour management setting. I edited some photos in Photoshop in Adobe RGB and when viewed in irfanview, the colours are wrong. I've already added both Adobe RGB and SRGB to my monitor colour management profiles.
    Comments?

    actually it's advisable to edit in sRGB due to the wider gamut specs compared to the Adobe RGB
