    I use an online construction database service. When I download plans they come in multipage TIFF files. Anyone have a good viewer for opening and browsing such files fast?

    I can also download in a zip file. I used to use DodgeView but don't have access to it anymore. Anyone have another recommendation of something that can browse a folder that holds large numbers of individual tiff files?

    irfanview's tiff viewer is terrible quality

    normally i don't nitpick on image quality, but it's just so horrendous it's practically unreadable

    Did you try Evince? If so, I'd be interested in knowing why it wasn't acceptable. That would be useful for future recommendations.

    Evice doesn't have a hand scroll feature. You have to use the L/R scroll bars. this is hard to do in large construction plans.

    Gotcha. Try FastStone viewer. Here's a link to the portable version, and if it suits your needs you could checkout the main installer. It isn't libre software, but it's freeware. I tried it in Wine, and I could grab and scan a tiff,

    Edit:
    I should add that it's free for personal use. A commercial license is $35, and that gives you upgrades for life.
