I haven't tried image viewer, but moonshell has it's own built in one.

Comic Book DS is pretty good for reading comics and I recommend it if this is why you want images or if the pictures you want to look at are large and hae lots of detail as it has one screen at 100% size and the other at a thumbnail where you select what to look at. The only annoying thing is you have to convert everything to it's own format first.

If they are just general images then you should be ok with just moonshell though.

Image viewer and comicbook ds require you to convert/pre render zoom states and thumbnails for your images since they have their own kind of browser thing to navigate.

Moonshell 2 will just list your images and generate the zoom states on the fly. So you have to wear that delay for each image and know your files by name unless you want to slowly track through them one at a time.

Image viewer can take a relatively small folder of nicely compressed jpeg images and turn it into a very bloated image viewer file. Drastically bloated.

Moonshell won't touch your original images so long as they're in a format it can read. It doesn't like certain jpeg formats for example.

DS organize has a picture viewer built it that works fairly nice. Imageviewer1.1 is good if you want to view your pictures at the resolution of the ds screen or make a slide show with em

ds organize I had no idea and i use it everyday I'll try that

I should have clarified. I just got married and my wife has no mp3 player which is what i use to store pics
she wants to show off our wedding photos

so i wanted to find something for her ds that scales the pictures to fit the screen
moonshell and comicbookds (which I also use often) both make the picture way to big and you have to drag the stylus over the picture to view it

I'll look at dsorganize right now and try imageviewer 1.1 in the morning thanks for the help and let me know if you find something that fits the picture to the ds screen

You could just do a batch resize of all the photos to 192x256 (keeping a backup of course)?

I'll second (or third or fourth or whatever) the suggestion for ComicBook DS. Excellent image-viewing capabilities, with the only minor setback being that you have to pre-convert them.

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
