TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
As part of my daily routine, I place PCX and GIF image files into the
technical manuals I produce. When I'm seeking an appropriate image,
I will frequently sift through a large number of archived image files.
I'm currently using a DOS based program called VPIC to do the sifting.
I like VPIC because it allows me to rapidly flip through full screen
views of GIF and PCX files at a variety of resolutions and it
is remarkably easy to use. My employer, however, would like all of his
employees to switch to programs that are strictly WINDOWS based. Is
there a WINDOWS based viewer that would offer the same capabilities as
VPIC but not cost an arm and leg to purchase?
Thanks for your attention.
