    We've been scanning a lot of old photos onto disk in order to send them to relatives. One beloved but technophobic person in Greece has an ancient laptop with a CD drive that can read the disks, but she can only view them in Paint, which is too ghastly even to contemplate. Can anyone recommend a still-available programme that she can use (preferably downloadable so we can send it to her) to look at the photos (saved as bitmaps) at less than 100%? She doesn't want to titivate them but she might print them out. We googled and found something called Graphic Viewer 1 and something called Freeview Graphics Viewer, but I wondered if anybody had a better idea. It doesn't have to be free, but that's always

    There hundreds if not thousands of photo viewing/modifying packages around.

    Painsthop pro is one of the best end user packages but isnt cheap that can modify pictures, remove red eye, resize, recolour etc etc. A cheaper Image viewing only package is ACDSee.

    A simple picture viewer thats free Id suggest:

    Using Infranview

    Another alternative is a album viewer such as My Album

    There are many free tools out there .. Websites like Tucows or ZDnet specialise in hosting free/share/payware.

    You can find both packages I suggested and more on this website Here

    P.S. If your sending pictures.. You might want to consider saving the pictures as .JPG format as .BMP ( Bitmaps ) are roughly 10 times the size and are only really of use when using paint packages. Also most internet browsers view .JPG format files by default.

    Thanks to all - Irfanview gets everybody's votes, also on another forum I visit sometimes. An absolutely brilliant program!
