Hi ElMaestro,

» I think I may be able to spawn a new process like e.g. a browser and use that filename as an argument, this would likely work in Firefox etc, but it seems very clumsy.

Does not work in any of the browsers I’ve tested (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, SeaMonkey, IE). Generally you are asked to either save it (idiotic cause you just opened it) or show it in an external viewer. Forget Ink­scape (too heavy for such a simple task). I recommend IrfanView. Lightweight and tons of formats supported.


I suggest the 32bit version even on 64bit Windows because some plugins are not available for the 64bit version yet. Onless you want to deal with 25+ Mpx 16bit TIFFs practically no difference in speed.
