what is a good (mostly safe!) photoshop viewer? Answered

i photoshop on school sometimes, and save the pictures to my USB stick. but i want to see them at home, without buying adobe photoshop. now, i know its just a google search away, but i dont really trust that (virusses, to say the least) so im looking for someone who has checked one, and can confirm its good... btw, im not into alot of options (no need) windows(XP) viewer has enough for me, so anything similar for photoshop will be enough :)

I use a program called GIMP, it's a free, open source, and perfectly safe. It does everything Photoshop can do and more. It'll open Photoshop files as well (I haven't tested that though, so I might be wrong).

i know that program, i use a portable version on my USB, but i didnt know it opens .psd files, il check it now, if it works, il download the full version ;) btw, the only thing about gimp is that its not as user friendly (in my opinion) as photoshop.

Before I had photoshop, I used quicktime to view my PSDs.

I use Paint.net. It's free and it's pretty powerful. There are a lot of plugins available for it too.

it also has a similar feel overall, although there are subtle differences. I do almost all of my image editing in Paint.net these days, although I am familiar and comfortable working with Photoshop.

Because I'm a majorly-doofus. I was using Notepad++ at the time and thoughtlessly linked to it instead of PAINT.NET..

that's http://www.getpaint.net/index.html

Doh!

if you're just looking to view them at home and not alter them. Then save the file as a jpg. File>Save As then choose the file format under the file name. So instead of mypicture.psd it would be name mypicture.jpg
