JPEGView
A tiny but surprisingly powerful image viewer

JPEGView is a small image viewer which is absolutely crammed with interesting features.

The program supports a good range of file types, including some RAW formats: JPEG, BMP, PNG, TIFF, GIF, WEBP, WDP, HDP, JXR, PEF, DNG, CRW, NEF, CR2, MRW, RW2, ORF, X3F, KDC, NRW, DCR, SR2 and RAF. And it loads and processes them quickly, too, thanks to its support for SSE2 and multiple cores.

Once open, you can open and resize an image by spinning the mouse wheel, or using a hotkey (there are keyboard shortcuts for every mouse action). And a small control overlay at the bottom of the window provides various useful options. You can step backwards and forwards through images in the same folder, for instance; switch to a full screen or "actual size" view; rotate images by fixed increments or just by dragging the mouse (an on-screen grid helps you get it aligned); and there's perspective correction, auto image enhancement, and a simple EXIF viewer.

JPEGView would be useful if it only did this - but the program is just getting started. Move your mouse cursor below the control overlay and more options should fade into view (if they don't, maximise the window and try again). A collection of sliders allow you to tweak contrast, brightness, contrast, colours (CMY/ RGB); there are options to tweak your shadows, and highlights, correct colours and contrast; there's an Unsharp Mask option, and you can even give the image a new name.

Still not impressed? Then right-click the image for even more. Like the option to display your images as a slideshow or movie (that is, at speeds of anything up to 100 per second); a complete batch file renamer/ copier; and a settings file which gives you more options, including the ability to extend JPEGView with other programs and custom commands.

With all this power, you might think JPEGView is going to be confusing - but it really isn't. Most of the more advanced options are hidden away, so on launch you're only presented with a basic navigation bar, simple enough for almost anyone to use. But experienced users can then easily explore further (hint: start by pressing F1 for a lengthy list of hotkeys).

Version 1.0.37:

- Support for display of GPS coordinates/altitude of JPEG images
- Location can be shown on map in browser, use new INI setting 'GPSMapProvider' to configure

Verdict:

JPEGView delivers a stack of useful image viewing and editing features, all presented with great care and attention, in a very well designed interface. Exceptional.

On my modest PCs, JPEGView has now replaced IrfanView as the default image viewer. That's thanks to its lightning-fast response, smooth zooming and ingenious, unobtrusive interface. It may not be as fully featured, but for quick click-and-view I've found nothing that beats it.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
