    "Love it! User-friendly even for computer novices"

    January 13, 2013  |   By MyPeppy

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    Program will help you resize/resample original photos, convert PNG or GIF photos to JPG for easier handling, and easily crop OR cut out unnecessary parts. I'm sure it can do more, but these are the features I use.

    Cons

    This is NOT a Photoshop program. Although it can sharpen a photo and deal with "red-eye" that's about the limit of it's editing ability. However, I would REALLY like the option of choosing different SHAPES for cropping, particularly oval.

    Summary

    For a free program - I highly recommend it to all my friends.

    January 10, 2013  |   By goddesslou

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    It it easy to maneuver around the program. This program offers basic editing tools. A good program for resizing images. This would be a great springboard for beginning editing.

    Cons

    Does not offer advanced editing tools. Offers very little recoloring or cloning.

    Summary

    A great program for a beginner. Offers basic editing tools. Great for resizing & cropping images.

    "Did EXACTLY what I needed!"

    January 8, 2013  |   By I_hate_user_accounts

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    I needed to convert .dcm files to .jpg. The files were from x-rays. Found IrfanView on CNet and it totally did the trick. Recommended.

    Cons

    I did have to install "plugins" from the IrfanView homepage. A minor annoyance. It also didn't automatically show up on the 'Updates'. Wish it gave the option to install the plugins during setup.

    Summary

    Worked great. Recommended.

    "Many ways to move to next photo, few to vary zoom"

    January 8, 2013  |   By plamumba

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    Seems to be quick and versatile

    Cons

    Seems like every key, including some one might expect to zoom, moves to the next file in a directory. Maybe there is some way to map something mouse control to do something else, but the left click moves, the right click moves, the thumbwheel moves. In addition, the spacebar moves, and god knows what else. To have one of the mouse functions (thumbwheel?) operate the zoom would be nice.

    Summary

    Not great for quickly going through a folder unless the default size on each image happens to suit you or you think going over to the +- keys is quick. Nice that someone makes the effort to write this though, and I may figure out some quicker navigation if I use it a bit more.

    "The best picture viewer on the planet."

    January 7, 2013  |   By esclyde

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    Free, fast, great batch processing capabilities.

    Cons

    Red-eye processing could be better, as could viewing of video.

    Summary

    The first program I load on every new computer.

    "Works for me."

    January 5, 2013  |   By elroybarton

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    Well, it's free, but you get a lot of "bang" and stability.

    Cons

    The interface could be more polished, but that's what you get for free.

    "The most underestimated software I ever saw"

    January 2, 2013  |   By cnetjantje

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    Irfanview is free, fast, small and has a simple ui. It can be used by non-techies and still has many extra's. If you are looking for an imageviewer with the most important photo-editing functions, this is and has been the absolute topper to my opinion. It lists in my personal top freeware of all time at number 2 right after Poppeeper

    Cons

    I use Irfanview since version 2.95 and personally dont think the UI has improved since then. It uses more screenspace now for the UI then it did in the early days. Thats why I still use the oldest possible version. I have to say I did my best to find a con as I absolutely love this peace of software.

    Summary

    The best and always underestimated peace of little photo/image viewing and editing software I have ever seen on the internet.

    "Not exactly easy, but works very well"

    December 19, 2012  |   By gidi2

    Version: IrfanView 4.35

    Pros

    Does a batch conversion

    Cons

    A little confusing

    Summary

    The batch rename coding options were confusing and I ultimately didn't use them. You are supposed to be able to put in a placeholder code so that original dates of converted photos are inserted. I never did get that to work. However, I did get to batch convert easily from Kodak fpx to jpg. And I did rename in batch supplying the dates manually to groups of like photos. If you are technically more adept, you will probably have no problem using the more efficient coding. Either way, I highly recommend it.
