Different/Better program than Windows Photo Viewer?

Is there a freeware program that will display photos in the size that Windows displays them when displaying them with the Screen Saver?

Windows Photo Viewer does not display them as large as Screen Saver does.

I have Screen Saver set to centered so it is not increasing the size, Screen Saver just displays them a lot larger than the default Photo Viewer does.

I'd agree with StalkeR. Picassa will probably suit your needs. If you want to experiment, here are a few more freebies.

If you have Microsoft Office it has Microsoft Picture Manager.

You can also try another freebie: GIMP - The GNU Image Manipulation Program

Picture Manager is fabulously easy to view (and change) the image to different sizes. At the bottom-right side of the screen is a slider to increase or decrease the viewing of the image -- so you can easily see how it would look in any size. If you wish to permanently change the image's size, you just use the "Resize" function, which gives you several different sizing methods to choose from.

There's an old favourite IrfanView installed and IfanView Portable. Lightweight deals with virtually every format.

Irfan View is good also. I was using it before 3-4 years.
