Irfan View

Windows 7 Help & Advice - - DISCOVER - www.ir­fanview.com

This isn’t new soft­ware by any means, but there’s a rea­son it’s reached such ven­er­a­ble stand­ing: Ir­fanView is one of the best bits of free soft­ware of its kind. If you want to view an im­age quickly and eas­ily, you want Ir­fanView. It sup­ports a long list of for­mats, in­clud­ing ob­scure im­age types from old cam­eras, vec­tor graph­ics, and more. View­ing isn’t its only trick: con­vert­ing images from one form to another is sup­ported, and you’ll be able to per­form rudi­men­tary tweaks too.

It’s quick to launch – in our experience far faster than Win­dows 10’s less­com­pat­i­ble Pho­tos app – and you can even ex­tend its ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Head to www.ir­fanview.com/plug­ins.htm to add sup­port for au­dio and video files and even PDFs. Set it as the de­fault app for images: in Win­dows 10, open Con­trol Panel and head to De­fault Pro­grams to do it.

See it Ir­fanView sup­ports a huge range of im­age for­mats, and is faster than Pho­tos.
