Photo Browser
A powerful free image viewer

Photo Browser is a powerful image viewer, once a commercial product but now freeware.

The program opens by displaying the first image in your Pictures folder. There are no toolbars, menus or anything else to get in the way, but if you hover the mouse over the window then back/ forward/ play (slideshow) buttons appear (or you can use left/ right arrow and similar keyboard shortcuts).

File format support is relatively basic at JPG, JP2, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIF/TIFF, TGA, PCX, ICO. Although Photo Browser makes up for this by handling a range of RAW formats: DNG, CRW, CR2, RAW, NEF, PEF, RAF, SRF, SR2, ARW.

Right-clicking the window allows you to change View Mode ("fit to window" or "original size plus a zoom factor"), launch the magnifier (zoom in on any area of the image), rotate the image left or right, or apply a few editing options (resize, crop, tilt, and tweak brightness/ contrast/ gamma/ saturation/ sharpness).

A thumbnail browser and favourites system makes it easy to navigate your hard drive.

The browser's "Extras" menu adds a couple of other bonus features. Batch processing tools resize, rename or add watermarks to your selected photos, while the Export option creates PDF-based contact sheets to help keep them organised.

Version 3.2.1 (Changelog):
    - Bugfix release: fixed a null reference exception and a memory leak in the GongShell.dll library

Verdict:

Photo Browser's interface isn't always comfortable to use, but its wide RAW file format support is a plus, the editing tools are reasonable and we like the PDF contact sheets, too.

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.
