I guess my words won't be enough to describe this program at his real value. Many thanks to Irfan Skiljan for creating such a useful graphic software. This is my favorite graphic viewer software for Windows. I use it for the first time back in 2001. It doesn't have extensive painting abilities such as GIMP or Adobe Photoshop. However this is a lightweight player and viewer that has a different purpose. It is fast, easy to use and it can handle many graphic file formats. It is small - his size at the time that I am writing this review is fewer than 2 MB in size. Additionally you can download plug-ins and other skins from official website (see bottom). When you use IrfanView you’re limited only by your imagination. For example, did you know that you can create screensavers and slide shows? (all you need is IrfanView, install it and learn how to use it plus a small collection of images). The best part after you created a screensaver or a slideshow is this: you can run them as stand alone executable on other computers (Microsoft Windows) that doesn’t have this program installed. I guess this says a lot about the abilities of this free image viewer.
