Windows 7: Image Viewer with good UI ?

+1, as I said originally.

The current ACDSee Pro 5 product is only $56, which is hardly outrageous.

There is also a free trial, so you can see for yourself.

It has terrific camera-friendly features as well, showing all/selected the EXIF data very nicely, etc.

The current Pro version does NOT look like Win98. It has the sleek Win7-Aero-look (conforming to your Win7 color theme) dark skin, kind of like the way Photoshop CS6 now also has that dark skin.

ACDSee's "photo editing" capabilities are the "bloat" that I don't care about, but they're certainly useful if you want to use them. I only use ACDSee (old v4/v5 from the early 2000's) for image viewing. And I occasionally use the latest ACDSee Pro 5 when I'm dealing with images from digital cameras.

FastStone Image Viewer is my recommend. For me , that have best UI, a lot of tools and much other.

I use FastStone since many years and can really recommend it. Nice UI and a lot of useful functions.

I have also heard good things about Ifranview but have never used it myself.

The program performance is excellent. The best free-ware solution available.
no one said anything against its performance, it just doesn't have a good looking UI.

Let me know (here, or via PM) if you have any questions about ACDSee setup. There are many options, and there are many ways to configure things for "better" results.

I'll be glad to "consult", having used this product since 1995.

Hey all! Lately I've been working with some very large (ex: 12000x18000px) images. Most of my work is done in Photoshop and The GIMP with no issues, however, when I am looking through them and use "Preview" with the Windows Photo Viewer, I'm quickly learning its limitations....many crashes and...

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 win7 x64 machine....
Image viewer, what are you using?
Ok, today i decided to dump ACDSee, because setup program and associations are totaly broken. Setup program makes ownership in registry of extensions you assign to ACDSee as "SYSTEM" so they are grayed out if you want to remove them later.
