  • Looking for a photo browser

    Hello everyone,

    I'm looking for a simple photo browsing program that I could use externally or embedded.

    I don't need anything super fancy, just want to be able to show pics if I'm at a car show or something. I imagine the buttons should be fairly easy to use with a touch screen, but I could also use a mouse, no problem.

    Does anybody know of a program that I could download?? And no, this is not for looking at porn while driving.

    If you're using XP, you can setup explorer to display thumbnails.

      i have a mate who uses irfanviewer which can make any windows os act like xp the way you doubleclick a picture and it previews rather than opening/slide show of pics

      it's handy if you're not on xp, don't know if it's what you're looking for though

          I am using XP. I had never thought of using Explorer for that. Can you give me a quick run thru of how to set that up?

          Thanks.

            in whatever folder your pics are in , go to the View menu @ top then go to " filmstrip" or "thumbnails"; OR JUST RIGHT CLICK ON ANY PICTURE FILE AND GO TO PREVIEW

              OK, now for the kicker of a question.

              How can I get MediaCar to go to that from the launcher??

              Of course, the way you described to look at pics is the way I normally look at them. But I'm trying to find a way that can make it easily go straight to the pics without any major navigation or button pushing.

              That's why I was asking if there's a simple program that I could use.

              I have one program that came with my digital camera, but to be honest, I don't like the way it works very much.

                My next generation Front End is right on schedule.
                It will be done sometime in the next generation.

                  quick and easy-

                  In Media Car you can set the type of compatible video formats-- if you add jpg then they will show up in the menu and you can browse/view them within the MC video viewer-

                  I read about it awhile ago in this forum--

                  Hope that helps-

                        I think a simple thank you will do.

                          Another slick way of doing this. Thanks for the responses everyone.

                            OK, I must be REALLY doing things wrong to not get this to work. I call upon the gods of mp3car.com to set me straight.

                            I've tried the method of setting .jpg. It works to see the pictures, but it goes thru them all like a really fast slideshow. Any way of slowing it down or even stopping that?

                            As for the method frodo gave, I tried putting that in and I'm getting an error code 52. Could someone please show me exactly what I need to put into the launcher file.

                            I hope I'm making sense. Many thanks for the help and patience. It is really appreciated.
