i use the picture viewer built in windows XP for quick viewing or photoshop
I use the picture viewer that comes with windows, but for RAWs, I use capture 1.
Mmm C1 ...
ACDsee isnt too bad either .. but might as well use the in windows XP one for most .
i wouldnt eva use the photoshoop one .. .
having photoshop open just makes my compute rlag more. . .stoopid memory goblins!!
I, too, use XP's viewer. I used to use the 'filmstrip' view in Windows Explorer but it has mysteriously disppeared... any one else have this happen?
I don't know how to get filmstrip view in Windows Explorer! haha!
I guess that mine's always been disappeared.
I've just started using the viewer that came in the ArcSoft Suite that came with my cam. So far, so good - has a basic editor built in: resize, crop, rotate, etc.
Hm... that seems to get bundled with everything... printers, cameras, scanners... I don't really like the unnecessary space taken up by the GUI...
They don't retain EXIF info too, which is bad. =/
EXIF is embedded Data within an image ..
it can store the
-Focal lenth ..
-time /date ,,,
and more +++
so basically ..what hes saying is that when u use the program to change anything ..
the new file loses all this data ...
OK, I understand what it is, I just don't get why it's so important to keep on manipulated images since the end result is different anyway and therefore no good for comparing aperture or shutter speed, etc.
soe people like to retain the info even on modified picture..
so you can still see what the original environment is ..
i mean ..
most of the time when u process ..
u dont do much to it ...
and its always nice to have the EXIF data ther eif u wanna look at it later ..

BTW, I found out my filmstrip view isn't 'lost'!! By default, it's only enabled for the 'My Pictures' folder but not automatically enabled on sub-folders (stupid, Gates!). To make matters worse it's about a five-step process to enable it on each and every folder - no 'apply to subfolders' option!
EDIT: Ooops - my apologies to Mr. Gates... there IS a 'apply to subfolders' option and it DOES apply to newly created sub-folders. My bad.
