IrfanView is a very fast, small, compact and innovative Freeware (for non-commercial use) graphic viewer.
IrfanView is known as the first graphic viewer for Windows which has provided GIF support.

Its revolutionary character has also made it one of the first applications offering Multipage TIF support and the first graphic viewer with Multiple ICO support.

IrfanView seeks to create unique, new and interesting features, unlike some other graphic viewers, whose whole "creativity" is based on feature cloning, stealing of ideas and whole dialogs from ACDSee and/or IrfanView! (for example: XnView has been stealing/cloning features and whole dialogs from IrfanView, for 10+ years).

The interface looks basic and simplistic, but once you start exploring the menu, you discover lots of advanced options. Additionally, you can add to IrfanView a variety of third-party plugins so you can view almost any image format you can think of.

IrfanView has a long list of features you will discover on the go: supporting the most common file formats, thumbnail/preview option, toolbar skins option, support for Adobe Photoshop Filters, batch conversion with image processing, fast directory view, multipage TIF editing, file search, email option, a multimedia player, print option, scan support, IPTC editing, screen capturing, lossless JPG rotation, hotkeys, Unicode support, and not performing registry changes without the user’s action or permission.

With the help of IrfanView, you can extract icons from EXE, DLL and ICL files, apply effects (blur, sharpen, filters etc.), change color depth, perform file searches, and enjoy paint options (drawing lines, arrows or circles) and straighten images.

IrfanView has been around for many years and it is being constantly updated. It is very well-organized and compact, even if it features so many options. It is also available in a portable version.

IrfanView is simple enough to encourage beginners and advanced enough, at the same time, to please power users.


Changes to IrfanView 4.52:

Improved Paint PlugIn stability
Support for DPX and CIN formats (DPX PlugIn, thanks to Patrick A. Palmer)
Support for FLIF format (Free Lossless Image Format, PlugIn)
Support for HEIF format (with installed HEVC extensions/codec, see Win10)
