As a general rule we use different programs on our computer depending on the type of use we need at that moment. A good part of these are focused on working with image files, both to edit them and to view them. But sometimes we can receive unexpected help, such as happens with the browser Google Chrome.
And it is that we must take into account that the space of our disk drives is limited, so we will have to take care of all of it. On many occasions we install programs that we are actually going to use occasionally and that do nothing but take up unnecessary space on our hard drives. What’s more, we must take into account that some applications help us perform multiple tasks and thus combine different jobs in a single software. This is the case of the current internet browsers that are increasingly powerful and functional.
Most of you probably use the proposal offered by the giant Google with its Chrome in this sense. As with many of the applications belonging to this sector, we have the possibility of installing extensions that further increase its functionality. In this specific case, we want to focus today on the possibility of using this popular Internet browser, also as a photo viewer. In most of today’s computers we have specific software to review this specific type of image files.
But it is interesting to know that we can also do without all this and directly use our web browser to view the photos and perform basic functions with them. In the case of the aforementioned Google Chrome, this is something that we can do through some extensions that we install.
Enhanced Image Viewer
First of all, we find this extension that we can use in Google Chrome and that proposes various tasks related to the photographic files. After installing it in the browser we will have the possibility of placing the images for viewing from here. Likewise, we will have some additional functions to zoom in, rotate them, or view several images in the same tab. Obviously all this will help us to do without an additional program that serves as a photo viewer.
As its name suggests, in this case we find an extension for Google Chrome that, in addition to serving us to view photos, we can perform editing tasks. In this way we can carry out various changes to the image that we want without using external applications, all from the program that we use to move around the Internet. In addition to being able to see the photo in the Chrome interface, we will have the possibility to edit it with some basic functions through the context menu.
We can also make use of the functions that we are in the left panel of the extension to apply to the photo that we have loaded. It must be taken into account that this is software that we add to the browser and that it is capable of being used even if we do not have much experience in this type of work.
