Poor quality of image viewer
The inbuilt image viewer is very poor quality, at least for JPEGs.
See attached screenshots which shows the same file viewed in SE Image Viewer and Android's built in gallery (one's zoomed in slightly more than the other - but the same problem appears at all zoom levels, even 1:1).
In SE Image Viewer the image looks like it has been saved with much higher compression than it has.
With my samsung android 6
0 I am not able to open any image file with SE ImageViewer.
I update with the last version of SE. Always a black screen with SE im viewer
Would like to bump this, the image viewer is the only weak point I encounter with SE. Documents or photos with details are compressed as mentioned, with no option to see the full resolution without caching and using another gallery.
I keep most of my photos on my server over SMB/SFTP and there aren't any other apps that cleanly support navigating to and managing the files like SE does. Quickpic was the go-to in this gap, but the official app is now bloated and unstable, and the only working fork has disabled network connections due to hidden telemetry.
It would be great to have the option to render the full image in the inbuilt image viewer, would keep my entire workflow inside Solid Explorer :)
I can't even zoom in all that much, which makes it difficult to view small details on large images. This is the only reason that prevents me from using SE for everything.

Same problem on my OnePlus 5 with stock ROM. Photos opened in SE Image Viewer look very bad when compared to opening them in stock gallery app. Both resolution and color depth seem to be significantly reduced.
I understand that this is probably done to reduce RAM usage, and it looks like every other app, that can open images, except stock gallery, does the same. However, SE Image Viewer shows images in the worst quality out of all apps i have.
I would like all images to be shown in full resolution and color depth, or at least an option to show them this way (preferably a one-time setting). There is hardly any reason to save RAM so aggressively on modern flagships. The only problem i can think of might be the JVM heap size limit, but both stock gallery and Google Photos still can do that.
