Windows Picture & Fax is the default picture viewer. (I'm using XP Home 32-bit).

I have a game that takes screenshots in .tga format. Windows Picture & Fax can't view it. Right now I have to load Paint Shop Pro (image editor) to view them. I hear there are other picture viewers. I'm just wondering how much resources these viewers use. If anyone has any experience. I cant tell how much windows picture & fax uses. But I imagine these other viewers out there would use up more resourses, right? A lot of them let you EDIT pictures too. Thats something I don't need. I just wanna view .tga pics without opening PSP 9 everytime.

Thats what I'm using now. I can view my .tga's now, but there are some things I don't like.

1. I can't seem to zoom in to 100% (it zooms to 94% then to 104%) No big deal.

2. When it gets to the end of the folder, it brings up an annoying pop-up instead of just cycling to teh next picture. :|

Ok, I fixed all the things that were bothering me. I still think MY settings should be the default though, lol. :thumbsup:
