Editors' Review

+

This free program provides a number of helpful tools for working with digital photos. XnView's pane interface shouldn't disorient most users, as it uses a tree-like structure to let you view your shots and browse your music collection.

Our lone complaint on this front is that the more complex effects and filters aren't accessible via the main window and require you to double-click a shot before you can use them. Besides standard tools for rotating images and renaming files in bulk, this app also can convert pics among a wide variety of formats.

In addition, you'll find tools for capturing screenshots and creating basic slide shows, as well as a simple audio player. We were excited to see a utility for generating Web galleries, but we quickly despaired when we couldn't get it to work. Still, we recommend XnView to digital photographers who already have a first-class editing program.

"Of the freeware Imaging soft: XnView on a deserted Island"

December 05, 2007  |  By adesigninteractive

 |  Version: XnView 1.91.6

Pros

XnView will most likely satisfy even the most discriminating graphic designer, and digital imaging enthusiast. Whether you choose the freeware version, or the spectacular payware version, you will not be disappointed.

Readers unfamiliar with this product: please don't be misled by commentary re: 'irfanview and xnview' as they are truly dissimilar. the IrfanView author has expressed publicly his disgruntled sentiment regarding XnView, and has likely influenced such negative XnView reviews.

Try the software. Make your own decisions about quality, but please don't score the software based on irrelevant, author bias-- or the pet software of other users (i.e. 'xyz-Soft is so much better! abc-Ware, which i review for you here, is a stinking clone!'). Such reviews are a waste of space-- especially when concrete examples to legitimize such claims are dubiously withheld.

Cons

Alpha channel support; user customization options for PNG alpha channel (and other file formats, such as ICO, BMP, GIF, etc., which might contain 'transparent' areas). XnView does produce quality exported images with alpha channel, but the user may find that he or she must experiment more than expected to acheive the desired alpha channel result.
