}The problem with turning up the screen brightness - either manually or via

}Powerstrip - is that causes other apps to appear much too bright. 
}Powerstrip will remember gamma settings for a given app, but unless you go

}full screen that isn't very useful for picture viewing.
}The only photo app I know of that will increase gamma automatically for 
}pictures is ACDSee. But if you write, perhaps the author of the freeware 
}Irfanview will add the option.
