Image Viewer?

Does the Fire have an integrated image viewer? I have seen it mentioned once or twice but I haven't seen anyone comment on its operation or even a picture of what the UI looks like.

Yes. The Fire comes with a Gallery app that is a photo viewer and video player as well (presumably for home movies, but also for anything in the right format that you've ripped or downloaded from somewhere else).

The Gallery app is actually pretty good - nice transitions, good slideshow, etc. Probably the most polished part of the Fire.

I LOVE the gallery app! It is really, really polished. Really reminds me of the iPad photo library actually.

I never cared for it on my phone and don't like it now either.
Quickpic is my preferred gallery app. it sounds like a lotto thing but it's not it's a great little app.

How do you get the pictures to show full screen? I would like to do a slideshow full screen, but can't figure out how to do it with the Gallery app.
Probably something simple I've overlooked.
Can someone clue me in, please?

Touch the picture. A magnifying glass appears in the lower right. Touch that and you are at full screen.

Ahh, this was the thread where Quickpic was mentioned. Thank you for that, Blossom. Was easy to side load the apk too, can't believe it's not featured on Amazon.

Just the fact that the built in Gallery app doesn't animate gifs was a no-go for me. I guess most users are just viewing regular photos but I've downloaded and made tons of gifs over the years dating back to old Jasc animation shop all the way to CS5 now. They work perfectly in Quickpic but show as still images in the default Gallery app.

Unfortunately Vista's Image Previewer has the same problem. I use to make name tag Gifs using PSP7 and JAS 3. Paint Shop Pro 7 will always be the best IMO. I still use it everyday.

And I thought I was the only one still using Paint Shop Pro 7. After Opera browser, it's the first thing I install on a new computer.

Yes, but what I would like is a slideshow in fullscreen so I can place the KF on a support and show a looping fullscreen slideshow on my desk. How do I do that??
Slideshow reverts to smaller picture and pictures do not fill the screen.

It one of the programs that goes on my PC after it's reformatted. That and Photoshop CS3 before they totally made the program a resource hog. PSP7 is the only Vista compatible Jasc PSP. I never upgraded past 9. I don't like what Corel did to the program.

I think QuickPic can do that if not I am sure there are other apps out there made just for this.
