    Opening Images In Default Viewer

    Hello,

    Can someone tell me how to launch an image in the users default viewer?

    In other words a user clicks on a image in a site and the default viewer for the system is used to view the image instead of another browser window.

    Thanks-
    Dennis

    afaik this is not possible; what you can do is inititiate a download instead of merely opening file as a link, using PHP or similar; that way your end user will get a "save/open" dialogue and then its their choice.
