Horizontal gallery scrolling view

Recommended Posts

Hi! I would like to note that the application in the active window lacks the option to scroll the image left or right in the current folder. Why am I writing about this? Because of double click for the default file application.

This should be an easy editor - image viewer. The default image viewers in Windows offer easy viewing but difficult editing, and in this case you could effectively do the opposite - easy editing and viewing . If there is such a tool as I suggest, please give me a hint, I will immediately replace and uninstall Paint.Net

Paint.NET isn't intended to be a "gallery" application. It will fully load/decompress every image you open and use a lot of memory if you use it that way.


You can, however, use Ctrl+Tab / Ctrl+Shift+Tab for next/previous tab.

I use IrfanView as a fast light-weight image gallery viewer, either by:

a) opening one image in IrfanView and then left/right arrowing through the folder
b) opening the folder in the IrfanView Thumbnail viewer and stepping through the images there.

And then, if I want to edit an image, I press Shift+1 to quickly invoke Paint.NET as an external editor.

It's a combination of apps that works well for me, so give it a try.


You define the external editor(s) in the Miscellaneous page of Options | Settings.
