HoneyView is a powerful image viewing application, the kind that is able to open a wide variety of photo files, drawings and even animated GIFs instantly.
How does it work? Basically, if you've used Windows photo viewer default application, you know how: just open an image file with it and use the arrow options to navigate between them. The software also provides a menu to control the display (which can be hidden to give more space to view the file), and the usual control tools are there - although in far greater numbers.
The main advantage of using the HoneyView, however, is not in its interface, but for your great support files. In short, almost all extensions most used on the market - and even some little used - are there: JPG, JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIF, TIFF, TGA, WebP and even animated GIFs are supported.
Ready for any type of format
And that's not all, in fact: even Photoshop design files, AutoCAD and RAW images are supported. You can not edit them as it does with the appropriate programs, of course, but it's always good to see them if necessary.
Check the list of supported formats below.
- Most common formats: JPG, JPEG, JPE, BMP, GIF, TGA, PNG, TIF, TIFF, DDS, PCX, PSD, PBM, PGM, PPM, and PNM;

Review Of HoneyView
For an application that seemed to be just another image viewing software, HoneyView is a very pleasant surprise.
As promised, it easily stands out for its extreme lightness: in our tests, open from small files to high quality RAW photos was something almost instantaneous. Meanwhile, ordinary viewers Windows were left behind when the item was really great.
Its support for multiple files, however, proved the true strength of the HoneyView. Believe me, for those who are professional in image and photo editing area, the software is a great guarantee that virtually all file types can be viewed by him.
If it were necessary to point a failure to HoneyView, in fact, the only fault would be to his "unoriginal" interface, compared to proprietary software that Microsoft offers. And even this is really something ridiculously small - after all, it is hard to think of a way to improve the simplicity of clicking on the side arrow keys (or press the keys) to switch between images.
So if you want to have the highest efficiency possible to browse the images on your PC - and not have to worry about whether or not that file opens with the software - HoneyView is easily one of the best options available today.
