Anybody Use IrfanView?

audrey_gwOctober 13, 2008

I was happy to find IrfanView, because I thought I could use it to transfer large image files out of Nikon's PictureProject. (PictureProject only lets you export files up to 2048 X 1536.)

But, for some reason, IrfanView is opening the PictureProject files at only about half their original size. Files that PictureProject says are 2000 X 3008 pixels, IrfanView is showing as being 1063 X 1600 pixels. That isn't any help, because I can export files that size from PictureProject itself. Does anybody know why IrfanView is doing this and what the solution is?

Perhaps it may be your settings for viewing...On the toolbar click VIEW...go down to Display Options(window mode)...will give a list of different settings...check the one you want...just for example I have mine checked at--Fit only big images to desktop and Center image in window...Also in...OPTIONS--Property Settings---Full screen tab...I have Fit to screen:large images only(recommended) and the Set display multiplier(%) at 100% for width and height...These are the settings I use and like...Hope this may help...or give you an idea...

Many thanks for your suggestions! Although those options were set correctly, when I went back to verify that they were, I noticed that there were also options for plug-ins under property settings. And I knew I was using a plug-in for the NEF files. Sure enough, under the plug-in settings I found an option called "Load half-size files" which had a checkmark beside it. I took that away, and it seems to be working correctly now. Thanks again for your help.
