Editors' Review

Irfan View is a compact and powerful photo editing program that gives you the tools to touch up and add effects to your photos. You can set images as your desktop wallpaper directly from the app, and put the finishing touches on all your photos with just a few clicks.

Pros

Convenient help: When you open Irfan View for the first time, a Web page also opens displaying a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the app. The information found here can help you navigate just about any process or situation you encounter when using the app. You can access this page again at any time from the Help menu.

Hot key configurations: Also in the Help menu, you'll find a listing of all of the preset hot keys the program contains. This list is extensive and covers just about every operation Irfan View can carry out. So once you learn the hot keys for your favorite operations, you'll be breezing through editing projects in no time.

Cons

Some limitations: With all of the functions this app provides for editing and manipulating images, it would be nice if it was possible to undo more than a single layer or to preview certain changes before you make them.

Drop-down navigation: There are multiple tools lined up across the top of the main app interface for easy access, but these mostly have to do with opening, saving, and similar operations. For all types of photo editing tools, you have to access the drop-down Image menu above the toolbar. This aspect of the interface requires more steps than we'd like, but once you learn hot keys for your most-used features, it won't be such a limitation.

Bottom Line

Overall, this is a great free program for photo editing, viewing, converting, and for slideshow creation. It works fast, and its super-streamlined installation process means you'll be editing photos before you know it.
