Windows 7: Image viewer suggestions

Image viewer suggestions

Hi all, can anyone recommend an image viewer? One that can browse images inside archives (.zip)?

I used ACDSee 3.1 for the longest time, win98SE to XP (avoided upgrading due to bloat). It's getting quite long in the tooth though and it didn't seem to install properly on my new Windows 7 x64 machine.

I don't like Irfanview. When I doubleclick an image in explorer and it opens, pressing the left/right arrow keys to browse other images in that folder seems to default to alphabetical filename sort or something (if I use the built in preview, the arrow keys navigate to the prev/next image according to what sort the folder was in, e.g. by date or whatever). It also seems to choke on animated images. And if it browses to a video (why?? I don't WANT my image viewer to open videos, I've got VLC to do that) then the navigation arrows don't work anymore because left/right will be rewind/fastforward the video instead of changing image files. Argh, annoying.

You might take a look at Zoner Photo Studio Free. Some folks even say it reminds them of ACDSee.
