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.

"Great for images, 5 stars for that. Disaster on videos"

May 07, 2009  |  By fmsorigaay

 |  Version: XnView 1.96

Pros

Very good image handler. Can handle raw photos and does a good job handling exif data.

Cons

Consistently crashes my system on videos. The screen gets colors or stripes & just crashes, and reboots or locks. I should note that this is only since I got video cards with memory.2 different cards, but this never happened with the original card
.

Summary

Stick with photos and you'll do great. I give it a five star because that part of it is so good. Just watch out for videos.
