Don't applaud, just throw money.

Did I add hotkeys (left and right for forward and back)? I don't remember if i did

Just want to request for zooming feature, although I do understand that you're said before it's a pain. Well, you can try it on your free time anyway, and that feature (as you said before) was available in XP before.

So good luck! I know you can do it, like how you create this simple, yet important apps. Oh I forgot, thanks corgano for this.

i hate to admit it corgano but a zoom type function is the only thing missing really. I wont ask for that though as you already told me its too hard/time consuming which i have no problems at all, im grateful as it is.
Most gif's i look at are under 500px in size so the first thing i can think of would be seeing if the image preview area can stretch as well when enlarging the program window, & the other thing option i can think of, if it is possible is to add a button which can open the built-in magnifier.

Humm. I will post a version with a "shortcut" to the built in magnifier, and should be able to stretch the window to the appropriate size for the opened gif, just have to find where I put the source...

Great!

great work there! yeah, zoom would be fun, but first the only issue i've encountered soo far is when it brings up my .gifs....they seem to be anchored on the bottom right of the pic, and that corner is actually centered, not the center of the pic....not much of an issue with most .gifs, but it ends up cutting off the top of my larger ones....
