Please don't waste valuable development time on a "lite" version. It is not needed. The current XNView freeware can be configured as "lite" as you like.

REQUEST: Option for Wheel Zoom

Thanks for all the new features in Version 1.74! Here's something for the next version wishlist: On the keyboard/mouse options panel, please add an option to zoom in and out with the mouse wheel. Behavior should be to center the zoom on the mouse position. It would be great for this behavior to affe...

Who needs ACDSystems after all?


Well, SageThumbs is very nice, but PicaView has tools for conversion and print layout that I use all the time.

I really dislike the 1 folder-tree style... Dopus uses that and a few others. Things jump around too much when you navigate the file lists. Give me two trees, instead... Actually, two independent XNViews side by side is just the ticket. I can do that now except it is a pain to arrange the views by h...

Display Bug in Browser Toolbar

I have encountered this little display artifact with all recent versions of XNView on several different computers under both Windows XP and Windows 2K and with a variety of different video cards. This clip is from Version 1.70.4 http://www.jfcinc.net/Interfaces/xnviewbug.jpg In short: my Windows Tas...

Main disadvantage of file managers like Total Commander is that you can't see preview image This is patently not true. TotalCommander supports more plugins (including image plugins) than any other file manager. Try installing one of the many TC image viewer plugins, then select an image file in the...

WishList: Flat Thumbnail Border

I like the browser "background colour" and the "thumbnail back colour" to be different (so that the thumbnail "cartouche" stands out from the background). However, if I choose to assign colors to background and thumbnail, the thumbnails automatically acquire oldstyle "raised" borders (which I find d...

Error opening large gif: reports bad size

The images of Mars at the Malin site are really incredible. Many are very large gifs. Here is an example of one that XnView fails to view. WARNING: This is an extremely large file (8.5 megabytes). http://www.msss.com/moc_gallery/e19_r02/full_gif_non_map/E21/E2101704.gif XNView reports " GIF : Bad pi...

It would be nice to have an option to toggle to the former marque zoom behavior. I am in XNView nearly all day long and the former behavior is in my blood.

I do like the preset marque ratios very much, but would still prefer the "old" zoom behavior for the marque...

Gamma Slider on Viewer Toolbar [Enhancement]

The most frequent adjustment I need to make to the images I view in XnView is to change the gamma. Sometimes I need to change the gamma just to make the picture viewable. This happens so often that making the trip to the Adjust menu over and over is very inefficient. Perhaps if we had the option to ...

Rearrange/Remember Thumbnail Positions [Enhancement]

I love XnView and use it everyday. It would be great to use the thumbnail display like a photographer's lightbox. I would rearrange the thumbnails into different areas on the display for comparison and grouping purposes. I would hope for a "snap to grid" option for this function, too. Then it would ...
