Grainy Windows Photo Viewer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I love the smooth zooming, but as of now the basic Windows Photo Viewer doesn't use pixel interpolation, unlike the old Windows Picture and Fax Viewer from XP, which means that zoomed-in photos are rather grainy and painful on the eyes. Is there a way to implement it?

  • Having the same problem here: no anti-aliasing when zooming into images in Windows 7 Photo Viewer. I tested this on three different machines, same results - so this appears to be default behavior. Any way how to turn anti-aliasing back on (as it used to be in XP)?

    Windows Picture & Fax Viewer is vastly superior as a quick image viewer. It was the same with the Photo Gallery viewer in Vista. There must be a solution to this, other than "get used to pixelly blocks of color when you zoom in."
