Windows Photogallery Background
Whenever I open a jpg file, it always opens in Windows Photo Gallery viewer.
The problem is the viewer's backround is a yellowish color that bleeds
through the photo causing distorted and darkened colors throughout the
photo. Is there anyway to either change the background of the viewer or to
stop this application from being the default viewer for jpg files?

Hi,

You just need to right click a jpeg file , select the Open with..
option on your right click menu , then choose default program.

You need to have a program installed to use as your default - Irfanview
is a great free photo program.

Alternatively download Windows Live Photogallery
