Why does IrfanView use such horrible .jpg algorithms? Every picture saved there turns out 10x bigger than if I did it in Photoshop.

Considering I regularly hit my 250gb bandwith cap, saving a few MB every time I open a picture is pretty fucking handy.

Since I open a fuck ton of pictures every month.

Thread relevant to my interests.

Ive been using pirated ACDsee and Im fucking sick of it phoning home all the time.

Could I just please have a good image viewer that can zoom and pan, crop and resize, basic shit, I dont need photoshop.

The one that comes with Windows is shit... cant fullscreen... wtf is that. This software should have been perfected 20 years ago.

>> No.27121146

Don't use Photoshop to save jpgs. Photoshop has its own resampling algorithms that modify the image even if you're saving a 100% copy.

>> No.27121148

>250gb cap
>assuming you have comcast

You do realize they never really enforced that and recently got rid of it?

100% quality JPG is not lossless anywhere, and never was.

>> No.27121160

What else should I use? I found it to give me the best images at the lowest size. Then again I only had IrfanView to compare it against.

>> No.27121163

I have rogers being Canadian and they charge you $2 every GB over the cap you go (Luckily capped at $50).

>> No.27121395

OK on your recommendation, I installed IrfanView.

Why cant I pan around an image with the mouse? Dont tell me I need to use horizontal/vertical scrollbars on the side. Because thats some ghetto ass shit.

Can I fix that? I dont see an option too... if this is as good as it gets, Ill call this crapware.

I wouldn't use Irfanview as an image viewer. It's nice for very simple image editing (cropping, resizing etc.) and batch editing, but not for just image viewing. HoneyView is better for that.

Fuck all that retarded bloatware with win95 UIs, most of them are a downgrade from the built in windows viewer.

>> No.27123606

I was misremembering the details. This is what I was referring to:

>Photoshop does some undocumented, proprietary magic to make high frequency areas appear a little sharper. (I think they are trying to mitigate loss from JPEG artifacts.) I've known about this for a few years and call it "rainbowing" -- it is a separation between the red and blue color channels that shows up during an error level analysis. (It's a tell-tale sign that an Adobe application, like Photoshop, was used.) Gimp does rainbowing a little; Photoshop does it a lot.

>Now we have multiple JPEG resaves plus something other than JPEG happening between each resave. That "something other than JPEG" from Photoshop is enough to keep the image degradation from terminating after a dozen or more resaves.

>Yes, repeatedly saving a JPEG makes the image worse. But repeatedly saving it with Photoshop makes it much worse.

Normal people? I mean is a fucking image viewer, not fucking excel.

Zune gets the looks, minimal UI but it has no right click functions, edit and you have to run that software just to look at a pic.

Irfanview is garbage... it can't sort through a folder based on date modified, it grinds to a halt opening large gif image, it doesn't scroll with the mouse wheel, switching between different size images respositions the window... it's just garbage. Don't use it.

>> No.27124364

You're supposed to look at the image, not what's around it. And fuck normal people.

>> No.27124411

>You're supposed to look at the image, not what's around it
Exactly but the fucking UI most of the time gets in the way. I hate the default on for example, it has that file, print, email shit that I can't get rid of.

sounds like you used it for all of five minutes and never checked out the options

You can't get a much more minimal UI than what you get with HoneyView.

It's not like that crap at the top and bottom is constantly visible. And why wouldn't you want a dark background for images?

>> No.27124645

I hate too much dark backgrounds, firefox has it now and can't stand it.

Is there a way to change the background?
