They said they used infranview to edit ones they put in files (I'm not sure exactly what that means either, but no matter).

If you do use infranview to view the photos, hold CTRL and scroll with your mouse wheel, it will zoom in and out. Although, just for viewing, a simple solution is "windows picture and fax viewer" - already built into windows.

I use this to reduce a whole folder of photos: at32 Batch JPEG Resizer

You're probably shooting photos with your camera in a higher resolution.

While it's large for today's monitors it's really not that huge, you can print a decent 6*4 with that.

The human eye can see about 250 to 300 DPI at an average "viewing distance" which would be the distance you would view an image while holding it in you hand or even the common distance from your eye to your computer monitor.

The capabilities of monitors and other devices like TV's will only increase over time and those images will not be able to fully utilize them.

I haven't used Irfanview for a while, but I'm certain there is an option to display image to fit the screen, or something like that. I'll see if I can find info on it.

Yeah it's fine by me. The larger size works better w/ what I do with my art. Gives me way better detail on the zoom feature.

Definitely. Irfanview is a real easy tool, I use it for quick viewing, resizing and rotating only. (Loads much faster than photoshop!)
