Still not convinced PicViewPlus is the best? If you're relatively new to this,
you might want to begin by taking
a look at an overview of what general features to look for at
Going Digital? Things to Consider. If you're
somewhat familiar with picture display programs, you may want to check out
the evaluation criteria that are used here to compare
Once you have a good feel for what to look for in a good picture display
program, you may want to check out a Quick Comparison
of over 35 picture display programs - freeware, shareware, and commercial.
This evaluation is in the form of a table so that you can rapidly compare them.
Each program listed is linked to a full evaluation of it.
For a more complete evaluation of dozens of picture display programs that compete with
PicViewPlus, see All Competitors.
Here you will also find the author, version reviewed, and product URL,
where you can go to get more information. Each of the programs is described using
the evaluation criteria discussed above.
As you are no doubt beginning to see, there are a lot of picture display programs
out there, many more than even those reviewed. If you check them out, you will
probably find that most all of them do a fair-to-good job of displaying pictures,
but only a very few are outstanding in value.
It is this select few that PicViewPlus competes against. These are the ones
you often hear people bring up in user forums when the subject comes around
to picture viewing programs. And these are the ones you should be aware of
when it comes time for you to choose a picture viewing program to look at your
stash of pictures. So check out this Top Competitors
report which compares PicViewPlus to the most popular picture viewing
programs available -
CodedColor PhotoStudio Pro, and
Jasc Paint Shop Photo Album 5.
Keep in mind that many of the picture viewing programs described here are
multi-purpose, in that while they display a set of picture files, they also often
include other features, such as creating a set of thumbnail images for a web page,
allowing picture editing (e.g., changing contrast), displaying movie files,
or bringing up a hex editor. Since the focus here is on picture display,
these other features weren't considered in the following comparisons. It doesn't
mean these other features aren't worthwhile - they just don't happen to fall
within picture viewing evaluation criteria.
It's also entirely possible that some significant picture display
features may have been omitted, although the omission was not deliberate.
Nevertheless, in many cases this overview hopefully will help you decide
which programs are worth looking deeper into.
