I am use "FastStone Image Viewer" It is a lot of formats and good opportunities of work (turn, scale, a zoom, own print) ore "XnView".

well,
i use Honeyview --> http://www.honeyview.org/
it is just a viewer but i think its one of the best out there.
the main thing that i like about this is that its so simple.
now the most viewers need you to configure the program
how you like to have it and heres the thing: in honeyview
you can do all this within the rightclick menu. honeyview
has options as well, all i needed to do there is that bookmarks
auto-save and -load. on the homepage is a youtube video that
shows the program in action CHECK IT OUT

I agree, I'm surprised the thread made it that long without a single mention of HoneyView.

is there any Software that downloads mangas from manga-viewer-sites with search and read functions?  :huh:

ps. i read mine with irfanview great tool

Why not just download from the translation groups' websites?
Online readers usually compress images and make them ugly. (Not to mention watermarks.)

I am still using comical although there hase not been any development for the last five years. The main reason for this is that it runs on all Windows versions since Windows 98 and works with extremely low hardware requirements and can still deal with Packed archives (zip and rar).
I still got an old LT Stylus Tablet (Pentium III - 233 MHz, 64 MB Ram Windows 98). It takes but a minute or two until it has loaded the first frame but from then it is quite fluid and the whole thing does not cost mor than $ 50 and when I lose it (which unfortunately already happened) I just purchase another one.

For quite some time I've used CDisplay but once I've seen PicWalker and then MMCE I switched to them. I was trying at least a dozen different comic viewers but none of them was as good as MM or PW.

PicWalker is much smaller and uses less resources than CDisplay while at the same time has more options and Manga Meeya and PicWalker let you read more comfortably (the continuous pages option that I've mentioned about, if someone has never seen it he won't know how much better reading manga can become). MM and PW have smooth scrolling, not jumpy one as in CDisplay, which combined with continuous pages makes it perfect for viewing manga. MM and PW have thumbnails options which you can easily configure (especially in MM 7.4). MM has very advanced zoom function which is even better than in Photoshop (I'm not kidding, the lanczos filter I as talking about. Thanks to that even LQ scans can be fit to width and you'll be able to read what's written in a small font). In MM and PW you can easily save/copy pages. Both have built in graphic editor which CDisplay doesn't have and CDisplayEx has but is less advanced. You can do most of editing without using Gimp or PS. PicWalker has option of batch convert of files, e.g. if we have 1000 .png files and we would like to convert them to .jpg files it's no problem. You can customize key/mouse configuration as you like in both. PW can find duplicate files (which can be very useful when someone has thousands of Claymore images for example: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=FAM6MBV2 ). Both MM and PW have slideshow option which you can configure as you like (so program scrolls for you). Both have "Favorites option" and you can bookmark where you left off (in PicWalker surprisingly it's better done than in MM even though it's much older and you can bookmark dozens of files) so that you will easily access the exact page of the exact file you want. They both have the hitory of recently opened files, e.g. last seen file was Berserk chapter 288 and after running the program it starts with that file (it depends on how you configure the program, it can do that or not). But what's even better it remembers exact pages of previous files, so if earlier I was on page 123 of Claymore volume 12 and I'll choose Claymore volume 12 it will go there (you can configure that also) !!! Which is really, really convenient. There are plugins (especially for MM, for PicWalker they're hard to find now) and skins. Like I said earlier, it can easily access archives in archives (or even archives in archives in archives, etc.). Installation isn't needed. It has also continuous pages modewhich is the main reason I loved these programs.

@hansm
Honeyviewer is a good manga viewer but it doesn't compare to PicWalker or MangaMeeya (which currently I consider as the best viewer there is). It has less options even though it requires much more space on the HDD (after installation it's over 40 MB whereas MangaMeeya is like 5 MB) and RAM and CPU usage. It doesn't have such awesome zoom capabilities like MM, it doesn't have such smooth and great scrolling option and it's basically good only for people with large (at least 21") monitors/displays who use the option "show 100% of the image" or "show the real size".  It also doesn't have much configuration capabilities.

@silverado
I've switched from old MM 2.4 Beta to MangaMeeya 7.4 and all is better except one thing - I can't find the option "thumbnail mode" (press "T" to activate it assuming you didn't change the binding key) which in MMCE 2.4 would allow to scroll every page vertically, similar to PicWalker. The name is confusing and inaccurate but basically it allows to look at the page "x" and the next one ("x+1") at the same time. It's better then having two pages horizontally, especially if someone doesn't have a huge display. Here's a screenshot of what I have in mind:
Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!


In PicWalker it works even better (you just have to activate "continuous pages mode" or press "C")and that's the only reason why I'm still using such old program.

There are some good apps for manga reading on Windows, I used to use Irfanview all the time. Only downside was having to unzip and unrar files. Since using a Mac, I've found FFView to be perfect except for the lack of updates, I've move to a program called Sequential that is updated a lot more frequently and plays nice with all sorts of compressed files (cbr, cbz, zip, rar, etc).

I use XnView, and have customized to enlarge images (pages) to monitor screen width and also can navigate with the mouse alone (scroll for vertical movement and left click to go to before image and right click to go to next image not to mention that in each image change the vertical position resets itself to the top so it's pretty convenient)

you can download here: www.xnview.com/en/download.html

Also this options are only available on the windows version as the new multiplatform version is being rewrite and doesn't have this features implemented yet.

Still, will perhaps check those other programs around to see if they are better.

Ah!, Lastly you can install the windows version on linux with the latest wine emulator, works just fine.

try using irfanview...greatest tool for manga viewing!!  :banzai:


Irfanview is decent image viewer but poor manga reader. It can't read archives directly so you need extract each one before reading... Now, I have over 8000 of files. Can't imagine extracting that. Not only I'm to lazy but it's just pointless and ineffective.

There's plenty of dedicated manga readers that can handle rar/zip. again, check the list: http://comicrack.cyolito.com/user-forum/7-general/7148-list-of-comic-and-manga-readers

You should find there something to your liking.

1. As for touch screen - ComicRack has touch gestures hotkeys and the next version should have multi-touch support.

Demo video:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZTV71FIrwg" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZTV71FIrwg</a>


2. There is one Symbian Reader, although I haven't tested it myself.

I'm using mangameeya with my Asus T91MT (touchscreen netbook), but I'm not able to configure hot spots. Has anyone been able to do that? That would be great to click on the left edge of the screen for next and the the right edge for previous.

Thanks in advance,

Does any one you have any experience using eManga (electronicmanga)?
I just stumbled upon it yesterday. It seems to be pretty good.
This also allows you to download your manga library into your ipod/iphone.
Let's see if reading manga is something that I can be done off my iphone too. ;)

I downloaded a while ago, it looks pretty cool but I can't get it to read anything except the stuff that you can download from them :sob:

i use comicsviewer, by jian ma

Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!

found it once on a chinese forum. i used to use hikaru viewer from toriyama world before that, but comicsviewer really was just far superior to it, so i shifted with little difficulty.

i just did a google search in the attempt to link a download, but i surprisingly couldn't find one as easily as i had thought. didn't realize comicsviewer isn't more widely distributed.

For now I use ComicRack on my laptop.

But does anyone use an ereader or a tablet Pc of some sort ?
Thinking of swithing to one of those, but :

- no color on ereaders for those few color pages ...
- tablets Pc seem expensive, and might not work in sunlight too good.
