Opening a picture from file to default picture viewer

Hi there…
I’ve trying to launch a picture (stored as a file on the HD) in whatever default picture viewer is on the operating system… (i.e Preview in Mac).
Ive tried f.launch (f being the folder item with the picture).

What is the best command to do this?


That should work just fine. What happened ?

Alternatively, you can use shell :

open /applications/ blue.jpeg

What about a cross platform solution (like if I don’t have preview - like windows)?

You did not tell me what happens with f.launch. It is cross platform and works just fine here.

Michel - I must apologise - f.launch works perfectly. One single apostrophe in my hit item string was exiting my sub with the f.launch.
thanks so much for the quick reply :slight_smile:
