Yet another graphics product with an interesting name. In this case, it is named after its creator “Irfan Skiljan”. This is a tool I use on a daily basis and highly recommend to anyone who attends CorelDRAW Unleashed Boot Camp.
The first thing you can do with Irfanview is to quickly view your images. Associate it with all of your bitmap formats and then you can easily flip through them as you like. Sure, you could use Corel PHOTO-PAINT, but it is pretty slow to just view an image. Irfanview is lightning fast. Want something a little more automated for flipping through images and Irfanview will cycle through the images in a slideshow. Convert images from one format to another. Resample and resize them. And I’ve only scratched the surface of what it can do.
So how much is this supertool? It is a free download. If you like it, please consider donating to the author to provide incentive for future versions. Also make sure to download the plug-ins to get even more features. When I load a new computer, this is one of the first things I load. I definitely can’t live without out!
