Hello

Just thought I would post this in case someone else was needing it.

This is a link to a thumbnail file viewer for the extracted textures for Skyrim in Windows 7. I'm using 64 bit and it works great. The Nvdia version did not work on my Windows 7, only XP. I tried several other programs but this is by for the best one and free to use.

The link takes you to the creators page with info about the program, just hit the downloads tab in the top left for the actual download.

This should be stickied or something, seriously, it's a must have for ANY modder. I'm using Vista 64 and it works great.

Good:
It displays WAY more than just DDS.
Tells you the compression type on any DDS file.
You can customize what it does and doesn't display. If you want just DDS, you can have it work on only that.
Lightweight.

Bad?:
Doesn't correctly state the filetype in the bottom preview pane if you leave it on for PNG or BMP (Also changes JPG). This ISN'T a big deal really, but I'd still recommend disabling it for png, bmp, gif, jpg, etc since Windows already covers those.

Thanks for the link, this is a great program so far.

Irfanview, works great and opens a ton more images, even .PSD files.
