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.

"A comprehensive viewer-***-editor"

July 29, 2012  |  By richteral

 |  Version: XnView 1.99


Handles a very wide range of formats. Intuitive, logically structured. Flexible, with a number of tools and some nifty touches.


Speed of rendering. No curves function.


To be highly recommended. Overall, compares well to FastStone, which is my benchmark. Capable of displaying even .xcf (GIMP). Its Contact Sheet facility is a useful delight while working on projects and/or series.

Note to CNET editors: I would write more but for the grey typeface on grey background while formulating the review. Get it sorted, or I will not be bothered again.

"Almost everything I was looking for."

July 26, 2012  |  By B00kWyrm

 |  Version: XnView 1.99


Visual index, and simple transforming tools.
Easily resize, flip, rotate and covert images.
Even has red-eye correction.
Freeware! (And, so far, no nags or ads).


Does not allow selecting multiple (or a range of) folders simultaneously to view a combined index.


I have used Compupic Pro for years, and it was an excellent product for my needs. But with Win7, needed to find something else. (C'pic does not work with Win7). This does almost everything Compupic Pro (by Photodex) used to do for me. If the publisher happens to read this, I would suggest adding the ability of viewing multiple folders at once. It would really help me. As it is, I may keep looking, despite the ease of use, and the "almost everything" I have already noted. While I did pay for Compupic, I wouldn't pay for this one. (I would consider an Adobe product first.) Glad it was free; so nothing wasted... and who knows... It might be the closest thing to what I am seeking! Thanks. (I hope MY comments are helpful!)
