CONFIGURING BROWSERS FOR AN EXTERNAL VIEWER

If your browser is not listed below, chances are the procedure is similar to the ones listed anyway. Feel free to e-mail me with procedures for other browsers, and I will add them to the list.

Netscape

From the pull-down menus, choose "Options", select "General Preferences", select the "Helpers" tab, and scroll through the "file type" list window until you find the "image/gif" and "image/jpeg" file types. Normally, these are setup to be viewed by the "browser." Highlight the "image/jpeg" type, and then click the "Launch the Application" button in the "Action" section. Then use the "Browse" feature to locate and select the image viewing sofware you'd like to use. A small, fast-loading program is recommended. Once you have setup the "image/jpeg" type, follow the same steps for the "image/gif" file type. Once this is done, whenever you click on a link to a JPEG or GIF file, your external viewer will be launched.

Explorer

Although Explorer allows you to select an external viewer for the GIF and JPEG files types, it will not launch the application. It seems Microsoft felt that nobody would want to use something other than their browser to view images...

NCSA mosaic

From the pull-down menus, choose "Options", select "Preferences", select the "Viewers" tab, and scroll through the "Associate MIME type of:" list window until you find the "image/gif" and "image/jpeg" file types. Normally, these are setup to be viewed "internal[ly]." Highlight the "image/jpeg" type, and then click the "Browse" button in the "To This Application" section. Then use the "Browse" feature to locate and select the image viewing sofware you'd like to use, then select the "Ok" button. A small, fast-loading program is recommended. Once you have setup the "image/jpeg" type, follow the same steps for the "image/gif" file type. Once this is done, whenever you click on a link to a JPEG or GIF file, your external viewer will be launched.

Spry mosaic

Although SPRY Mosaic allows you to select an external viewer for the GIF and JPEG files types, it will not launch the application. It continues to view them internally...

Quarterdeck mosaic

From the pull-down menus, choose "Tools", select "Preferences", select the "Data Engine" tab, and scroll through the "file type" list window until you find the "image/gif", "image/jpeg" and "image/jpg" file types. Normally, these are setup to be viewed by "QMosaic." Highlight the "image/jpeg" type, and then click the "External Viewer Application" button in the "Action" section. Then use the "Browse" feature to locate and select the image viewing sofware you'd like to use. A small, fast-loading program is recommended. Once you have setup the "image/jpeg" type, follow the same steps for the "image/jpg" and "image/gif" file types. Once this is done, whenever you click on a link to a JPEG or GIF file, your external viewer will be launched.

Spyglass mosaic

From the pull-down menus, choose "Edit", select "Helpers", select the "Helpers" tab, and scroll through the "file type" list window until you find the "JPEG Images" and "GIF Images" file types. Normally, these default to the "built-in" support. Highlight the "JPEG Images" type, and then click the "Edit" button. Then use the "Browse" feature to locate and select the image viewing sofware you'd like to use. A small, fast-loading program is recommended. Once you have setup the "JPEG Images" type, follow the same steps for the "GIF Images" file type. Once this is done, whenever you click on a link to a JPEG or GIF file, your external viewer will be launched.
