This IrfanView download doesn't just support 60 image formats, but also the most important audio and video files (WAV, AVI, MP3, OGG, MPG) and animated GIFs.
There are many image editors and picture viewers. But few match the refreshing ease of use and speed of this IrfanView download.
It might not look advanced. But don't judge an app by its screenshot. IrfanView is a great freeware image viewer that supports more than 60 data formats. It allows you to browse through collections of graphics or watch an automatic slideshow.
If that were all that IrfanView did, you'd be forgiven for thinking "so what?" But the software also features an array of image editing tools, a powerful graphic converter and a scanner interface. The software isn't just first class because it's free. This latest IrfanView download comes with numerous new features and bug fixes, and the batch conversion functionality is worth getting this for on its own.
Note: During the installation, IrfanView will ask whether you would like to install the browser Google Chrome. If you don't wish to do that (or you already have Chrome installed), just untick the box.
Verdict: Together with the IrfanView plug-in collection (which is available separately), this compact, frill-free freeware tool flawlessly nails all the important features of an image viewer. Download IrfanView and you'll not be disappointed, especially if you regularly work with lots of images and need to convert or resize them.
