Image Viewers (July 2007)
Image Viewers are typically used to view images, typically providing a list image
thumbnails, from which an image can be selected for viewing. Most viewers include limited
image editing capabilities as well.
Not many features are needed for a viewer, where ease of use and speed of image display
are the key features.
This review is in work. Until the review is complete, I suggest the following
application for your image viewer needs:
ACDSee has undergone many changes over the years, but in its Classic
configuration it still is one of the easiest to use image viewers around.
