    want a better Photo viewer

    Hello all,
    I am looking for a freeware (and preferably portable) Photo viewer as an option to default windows viewer. The Default viewer wastes too much space on Buttons and menu bars , especially on widescreen display and the image appears smaller due to such waste. Also, I want the software to display EXIF and buttons (Next,prev etc) as an transparent overlay over the full image, So that maxiumum screen is utilized.

    My Pc-
    AMD Manchaster X2 3800
    MSi k8nGM2-FID mobo
    4 GB ram
    2 TB RAID 0 sata array
    Nvidia 9800GT
    Full HD 16:9 Screen.

    Found a discussion here but the thread is old,
    Image Viewer suggestions!

    However, i want the EXIF to be shown RIGHT THERE. By default. Without going into a seperate menus. I already have Infran view, PhotoFiltre, and Inkscape. They lack an option to show EXIF as an overlay by default.

    Infact, I am spoilt my by Samsung note , which does it all for me via a viewer called 'quickpic'

    Not free, but I would recommend ACDSee Pro 6 ($100) which is an excellent image browser (as well as more, but I don't use it for anything but image viewing). You can try that as well as ACDSee 15 ($50) for free and decide whether either meets your needs and whether you are willing to buy them.

    Thanks for the input. I am not spending on the software, hence would like a freeware option.
    Thanks anyways.
