Yeah, I know, irfanview. However…
The local construction association just changed their online drawings format, and the blueprints now download as tiffs. My coworker, who is quite set in her ways when it comes to using computers (I ask her why she doesn’t click “print current page” instead of “print page range” and then typing in the current page number. “This is the way I do it,” says she. Drives me bonkers.) wants to be able to have the viewer open the file sized to fit on screen (these are often 3’x4’ blueprints), and zoom to an area selected by dragging the mouse. There also needs to be an option to print the currently viewed area.
I can’t see that irfanview has any zoom options between zoom in/out. Not even a zoom in centered on pointer option. The Windows Fax and Picture Viewer thingy is what’s currently associated with tifs on her machine, and it at least zooms in on the pointer.
Anyone have any suggestions for other freeware viewers? If there’s a really good commercial viewer at a reasonable price, that would work too, but she won’t be getting Photoshop or the like.
