I have a recent need/want to view multiple images (e.g. up to 30) side-by at different magnifications, crops, etc. --- For my Windows computer.

I remember back in MS Office 97-XP, there was a software called MS Photo Editor. Each image would launch in its own window (i.e. back then, called MDI - multiple document interface).

Is there a modern equivalent? I tried Irfanview but couldn't get it to work. According to FastStone website, it allows allows 4 images at a time.

Is it my best bet to try and install an old version of MS Photo Editor?

  • In what way is this different from opening 30 images, each in its own window? Why do you need any particular support in the image viewer? – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Aug 30 '15 at 7:38

I've found PhotoDeamon which up to the 6.0 release supports MDI. After the 6.0 version, they now have a new looking layout which also may work for you.

Many years ago, I used to use an old shareware version of Paint Shop Pro which had a browse feature which tiled images together, allowing me to compare.

Windows also shows images in tiled views, so browse to the directory, and in the view menu, change to small/large/extra large to view the images together.

I've found MultiImage Pro which up to the 1.6 release supports MDI. After the 1.6 version, they now have a new looking layout which also may work for you. Download it at www.imagexsoft.com
