If you only want to view them you can use your web browser if you have one. Just drag a jpeg and drop it into the browser window or type the path and filename of the jpeg into the address bar.

The file size is 1.4MB, so you might just sqeeze it on a floopy, I should think you can because it was a time before CD were common place.

Good luck.

The link I posted looks to me like an Education site so you may be able to get permission to view.

Here is a short summary.

LVIEW PRO

Shareware. This is an image file editor for Windows 3.1, Win32s and Windows NT. It was written by the same author of LVIEW. Lview Pro displays/saves image files in .jpg, .gif 87a/89a, .tif(f), .bmp, .pcx, .pbm, .pgm, .ppm and .tga formats. It requires a 386 or better CPU and a SVGA card. It certainly has better quality than Lview and can perform more functions.

There is a lot more info on the site.

My 'OLD' laptop was unable to view *.jpg because of the limits of the screen (VGA or EGA)and colours it could display etc - no matter what software was put on

hi all,
i have done a bit of testing
and i have downloaded a "converting" program
i have converted my jpegs to BMP and can view them on my laptop.
thanks for all help


Sethhaniel-
you were right only some of the pictures could be viewed becouse such colours didn't display.
however i have found by pressing the screen in you can see some of the original colours
isn't this odd???
