looking for a file viewer. Something like the nikon viewer.

Need it for windows 98/XP. Tired of having to put my nose on the monitor to proof.

I use Compupic. Stick that name in any search engine and you'll find it. Download from the internet for a free trial. If you like it pay $29.95 and they send you the key -- you get free upgrades for a year. Not a bad deal.

Clint, I go thru this question every few months or so. I use ACDSee myself. Both the 2.4 and 5.0 versions. The newest version isn't the most stable but has a few more features so depending on what I want to do I might use either version.

One thing to consider when looking for file viewers is if the viewer is profile aware. By that I mean does the viewer assume all JPGs are sRGB or does it read the profile from the .jpg (or whatever file is being viewed) and display both the thumbnail and image using that profile. If you ONLY shoot sRGB and only want to view your images then that won't be a problem. However, if you use different profiles such as AdobeRGB or custom profiles then that could be a potential problem for you. This is something I don't see people ever mention when looking for a file viewer and yet I think its very important. The latest version of Nikokn Capture is profile aware on the image but not on the thumbnails (I think). The easiest way to tell is to open a JPG in Photoshop, assign a profile that makes the image look really bad. Then save the image. View the image as a thumbnail in your viewing program and see if it looks like it should. Chances are it won't look like the big image (color wise).
