CNET Editors' review

FreeVimager is a simple tool for viewing photos and video and hearing music. The program is functional, but isn't anything spectacular.

We were pleased with FreeVimager's intuitive interface. Within no time we were opening our photos and utilizing the program's simple editing tools. Focusing mostly on resizing and adjusting the color composition, the program didn't let us add filters or anything fancy, but we actually liked how that kept things focused and simple. However, we didn't agree with the program description's boast that it was smaller than its competition. Frankly its size, just like its functionality, was about the same as other viewers'. In addition to pictures, we could download video and music and play both with what had to be the world's most basic player: a Play button and a slider. We appreciated that it allowed for PDF conversions. With a single button push, we converted our JPEGs to PDFs. Everything worked well and proved to be an acceptable way to view various media.

FreeVimager is a freeware program. While the program fails to provide a lot of fireworks, its simple functions make it worthy of download.

    "Better for viewing video, but"

    October 17, 2007  |   By kollens

    Version: FreeVimager 1.3

    Pros

    Actually the video viewing is better, No longer sluggish when i go to full screen mod. I love this program because i need to take still image photos out of video, Often and this program does this wonderfully.

    Cons

    I Do not however like that it opens my pictures, Even after i told it only to open my movie or video files. It still brings up my images, when i go to print. I still have to figure out how to fix this.

    5. Developer personally responds to and implements feature requests via Contaware.com forum.

    None whatsoever.
