Hello

Just joined this forum and checking in as advised. Actually I have a problem someone may be able to help with, one way or another: I use Thumbs plus 7 to manage the 40K mostly dud pictures I can't bear to delete and might be able to use somehow, one day. In windows 7 it's very slow to load even small files on my desktop even though ther same program is quite fast enbough on my laptop which hasn't anything like the mass of core I put in the desktop. My IT guy can't find anything wrong with the computer and the software company haven't answered our messages.

So either:
anyone any idea what my problem is?
anyone know of another resouirce manager like Thumbs I could buy?

would really appreciate any ideas,
Steven.

Welcome to Pixalo Steven

Not familiar with Thumbs plus, but if the company have poor customer service I'd ditch it and try either Picassa (which I have not used) and is a free download or Faststone Image Viewer, which I have installed on both my desktop and my laptop. It is also a free download (with a request for a voluntary donation) and is packed with useful features and a great slideshow facility.

Thumbs is brilliant when it works properly giving a whole screen slideshow with mouse advance/return

Re: Hello

I've used ThumbsPlus and have found it great until you've a relatively large number of thumbnails when it'll start slowing down. I assume this is probably a known condition - hence the ThumbsPlus 8 rewrite (not tried yet) which, I speculate, will get around this situation

I'd certainly endorse Picasa as a very creditable alternative!
