    "Excellent program for picture viewing and manipulation."

    June 20, 2013  |   By Kees_B

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    Perfect for what it does (and that's much more than I use it for).

    Cons

    None I can think of.

    "Great stuff!"

    June 16, 2013  |   By Bob854999

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    I love this program. I use it all the time, couldn't get by without it.

    Cons

    Not much bad to say. It would be nice if the plugins got installed automatically.

    Summary

    Registered and paid for.

    "An excellent free image manipulation utility"

    June 7, 2013  |   By ServaGBR

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    IrfanView offers the tools to improve your photos in a reasonably simple and understandable form. While not as fully endowed as Photoshop, IrfanView is more than adequate for the keen amateur.

    Cons

    Perhaps a little overcomplicated for the simple snapshot taker (I would suggest Pixlr for basic photo improving)

    "Nice program"

    May 31, 2013  |   By dakota021

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    A nice program which is fast and quite easy to use. But for all my photo editing needs, I prefer to use Kestrel GX software which is far better than irfanview. Kestrel GX has lots of special effects like filters, vignettes, frames etc... which unfortunately are not present in irfanview.

    Cons

    Lots of useful tools missing in this software.

    "Widely used and great program."

    May 30, 2013  |   By TN-Trawlerman

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    Fast, simple, covers most basic needs. Opens darn near every image file type ever imagined.

    Cons

    Does not take the place of a full featured photo modifying program.

    Summary

    There is nothing not to like.

    "My go-to program for pics I take or grab off the 'net"

    May 10, 2013  |   By bloomdds

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    Easy keyboard shortcuts, great plug-ins (eg. create .pdf from multiple images, F12:add arrows, boxes, paint, erase, and more), fast, enables me to add arrows and text, auto-rotate to straighten pics to horizontal, easy crop, easy enlarge canvas size to paste additional pics into current pic and/or text for instructional use or collage, great compensations for dark pics and overexposed pics, easy batch treatments for size reductions (either file size via variable compression or pic size in inches) and more, easy to control print size in inches, and many more useful features.

    Cons

    only 1 level of undo

    Summary

    I have used Irfanview for years and it is my go-to for getting pics ready to show.. whether vacation or everyday pics, procedure instructions, or before & after views in one pic. It amazes me how much it can do and I'm sure I'm only scratching its surface. I do not use this for some things and another program for other things, as Irfanview does everything I need with the pictures I take (or grab off the 'net).

    "Great Program for resizing pictures and more Awesome"

    April 9, 2013  |   By musicman4you

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    This is a great program for resizing pictures.When I put pictures on my PC from my digital camera they are way to big,most of the time a little over 1 mb.Way to big to send people and takes up a lot of space.With IrfanView I resize the pictures to jpeg and to cover most of the screen and it is only around 20 to 80 KB in size.I have used it for a long time for Ebay pictures.

    Cons

    No cons for me

    Summary

    If you want a great program for resizing pictures this is it.I also convert mine as jpeg.Great for Ebay pictures.Saves a lot of space.I wish more people would use it.I hate when somebody sends me a picture that has not been resized and would cover 5 monitor screens.Way to big.I got to play with it a little the other night and found out I could add Text in my pictures with my choice of colors.Anyway I would recommend this to anyone.Thanks IrfanView
