  • IrfanView
    For Linux users looking for something similar to IrfanView, nomacs is the closest I found to IrfanView since I moved away from Windows: - Source: Hacker News / 2 months ago
  • How can I export an image displaying in CMYK as RGB?
    How that cmyk profile is shown depends on the image viewing app too and if it [the app] can show that colour profile. Have you tried opening the image in a webbrowser, if it's updated and your monitor has the specs for it, try drag&drop the image to an open browser tab. As for img viewing app you can try nomacs.

  • Windows Photo App Blown Out
    Yep, had same issue. Doesn't seem to be a solid fix, so I ended up downloading nomacs. Crazy lightweight, and supports file formats that photo viewer can't. Also nice having almost zero lag when opening images, or scrolling forward AND backwards while in the program. Source: almost 2 years ago

  • Windows 10 Photos App = MacOs Photos?
    If you delete photos or folders in the photos app, they are moved to the recycle bin. If you remove an album you have made, it does not delete the photos. If you disable the Photos app, you will need a 3rd-party image viewer. FastStone IrfanView (Definitely get the plugins if you use this.) Nomacs XnView MP ImageGlass. Source: over 2 years ago
