Just trying to flip through the pictures from our trip...
back in the day, windows came with a perfectly fine picture viewer. okay, it did have the annoying habit of automatically saving the changes to the file if you rotated an image, but it at least scanned through them in chronological/numerical/alphabetical order in the folder and would even do a slideshow if you wanted. my work laptop comes with something called "Jasc Paint Shop photo album"... are they showing the pictures in random order in order to get me to upgrade to an edition that does something sane? Gaa!

At least it asks for confirmation that you want to save changes if you rotate an image, but - Gaa!

Is there a sane picture viewer out there? anyone?

IrfanView, free, has slideshow mode, has thumbnail mode, even has some editing (including lossless rotation).

Seconded, a pleased IrfanView user here for years. The best I've ever found by a large margin.

If you're willing to pay a little money, Adobe Photoshop Album is fantastic for about $35 or $40. Comes with a decent color/exposure fixer, red eye remover, and album organizer. The best part is you can create tags (like "Maine trip 2005") and drag and drop them on pictures. Then later you can click on one or more tags, and it will pull up only those pictures that have the set of tags you clicked on. This has been a tremendous help to us in organizing our digital pictures.

Windows still comes with the picture-viewer - you just have to change your file associations. The windows picture viewer is called "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer."

Good luck.
