i just use windows image viewer. i have to extra buttons in my mouse, one for getting to the next page and another to put the image in its actual size. its fast and the better way for me. i dont like to see the images compressed to smaller ones bc of the screen size..

Windows Picture Viewer is fine. I just use the mouse roll thng to enlarge/decrease, etc etc. It's not like a different program will make it look better.

Sorry Aymie, but I don't see how your program is in any way better than CDisplay outside of being able to read .TIF files. To be honest, it's trash.

I really don't see what's so difficult about Ctrl+o to open a new file (Same as PicWalker) and scrolling to the next page, or even using the "page down" button.

There is a much, much bigger upside to CDisplay than there is to PicWalker.

Personally I prefer to use CDisplay. I just either use the mouse wheel or the space bar to go through the pages, it's a great program fullscreen and can read from rar and zip files.

I also read manga on my psp using the homebrew app pep viewer. It allows me to listen to music while reading the manga and fits it width wise on the screen so i just have to scroll down with the analogue stick, really great.

Windows Image viewer for me smile

I dunno if it is right o post this question here, but guess I'll post it anyway ;)

How do you guys read the manga? I mean from the left to right or the opposite. Cause it sometimes gets confusing as some pages make sense reading from right to left while the others the other way round. Please tell me. I mostly. Since I recently started to read manga I didn't have much trouble as most of em are already seen by me on tv as anime shows.

MOST manga is right to left. Just go with that until you notice it doesn't start making much sense...then that series is left to right...(although technically speaking, that wouldn't be considered MANGA then)

FS Viewer. Easy to use, move between pages, and it has a great algorithm for resizing images while maintaining quality.

I just use the Windows Picture Viewer. I just don't feel like downloading a program to scroll through some images.. And the viewer is sufficient.. You can usually tell the difference in artwork between what is and isn't an American comic.. Not to mention they I just don't think they are as good. Don't get me wrong, I really like American comics. Just not as much.. The ones you were getting confused with are probably Korean comics. I didn't actually start reading any until I read Ares.

Manga=Japanese comics
Manhwa=Korean comics
err.. Comics to us Americans are just "comics". I guess it would have to be specified as "American comics" when trying to seperate the true meaning.

I use ACDSee

I use CDisplay for all files. These are as big as the screen, easy read. Then if some don't read it ACDSee 6 (brought for $20, too cheep), at worst the Windows Picture Viewer eek one last if at all eek I know.

love and peace
