    where is Picasa?!?!?!?!?!

  • you should put picasa photo viewer in the top 1 list

  • volkerball85

    I really wish Google hadn’t decided to put Picasa out to pasture. It was the only image viewer I’ve used that came close to the simple usability of Windows'(now-defunct) Photo Gallery program, as seen in XP, Vista and 7.

    Every other image viewer I’ve tried, even many from this list, all fail in some irritatingly simple way. Either they’re set up so mousewheel = scroll to next image instead of zooming(this is why I refuse to use the new Photos App in Windows 10), or they ignore the file ordering of your folder, or they take forever to load up. There’s always -something- that makes them inferior to Microsoft’s past efforts at creating such a program.

      So which one in this list do you think is closest to the old windows version?

    • ChrisP P

      I have Windows Photo Gallery running in W10 – some issues but mostly ok.

    • Z K

      Ctrl+Wheel should work in most of these for zooming. It does in Irfan – my go-to viewer.

    I’ve been using KrojamSoft PhotoViewerPro for a while now and I’m very happy of it. It’s user-friendly and very powerful.
