Finally! A multi-format image viewer for Windows that supports SVG.

I have only been using ImageGlass for a few days now, but I am already so happy with it. For a long time I have wanted a simple image viewer that supports scalable vector graphics along with other popular raster & vector formats. ImageGlass has been the only free answer for Windows so far. It has a simple interface for browsing images in a very familiar manner. It can be customized to open images in external editors. There are probably many more settings & configurations that I haven't yet explored. After I have had more time with it I will update my review. For now, it gets 5 stars.

Simple and easy to preview PNG images with transparency.

Windows 10 doesn't support the old photo viewer by default without a registry hack as they want to push their Photos app. I don't trust the Photos app, so I tried ImageGlass.

It's open source, supports more file types than any other photo viewer out there and has some cool options (checkerboard background for knowing where transparency is, lots of sizing options, dark theme). It might not have many editing options (only mirror flips and rotations), but I don't care, I can just open a file in Photoshop, if I need to make edits.

Great program, basically what Microsoft should of done and not given up, but they want to sell services like Apple/Google and could care less about basic OS tools.

A rare pearl !

I came across it by chance, and I immediately loved it: the design is very clean, it's fully customizable, free and open source :D (note : the loading of large images can be a little bit longer than with the native gallery of windows). However, I use it daily and highly recommend it!

prioritizing "upload to facebook" over the "open with" function is kind of dumb

Worked fine on a couple of tiny little JPEGs but opening a completely normal, 12-megapixel JPEG from a camera causes it to completely bog the whole computer down to the point of being unresponsive and consume over 4GB of memory.

Unusable on anything but trivially small images.

My experience with 12 (FujiFilm), 23 (Sony) and 34 (Nokia) megapixel JPEGs is very positive. It seems quite fast to render. I'm using ImageGlass version 7.0.7.26 (release mid 2019 I think). It hasn't failed to render a JPEG yet. RAM usage doesn't often seem to go over 200MB. I once saw it on 450MB, but moving to another JPEG had the RAM usage drop to 200MB again.
