Viewer - Free image and text viewer

Click for larger image Viewer is a handy program to view images and text files. Other unsupported files will be shown in hex-mode. Only viewing is allowed, so you will not accidentally modify your files. You can zoom, rotate, copy to clipboard, and move fast from one file to another in a folder.

This program is provided as a free viewer for our flagship product, AcuteFinder — which is by many considered to be one of the best duplicate file finders in the world. Viewer can also be used as a standalone program, and you can easily associate it with various common filetypes via Windows Explorer.
