Introduction about IrfanView Graphic Viewer
IrfanView is a graphic viewer for Microsoft Windows. It supports all common graphic formats (BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, TIFF and many more) and allows you to open, view and print images.
The program also provides an extensive range of features including image editing, image processing and batch conversion.
Probably the most popular freeware graphic viewer of all time
IrfanView is the most popular freeware graphic viewer of all time, offering a large number of features and options that can be accessed through a simple user interface. It comes in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions for Windows 7/8/10 systems. IrfanView can open over 500 file formats (including animated GIFs), as well as view many other formats such as IFF, EXR and WDP (Windows Device Profile). It also has support for Youtube videos (if you have a browser installed that can play them) but not Flash content.
IrfanView was the first Windows graphic viewer with Multiple (animated) GIF support
IrfanView is a graphic viewer with support for multiple GIF files. It was the first Windows graphic viewer to support animated GIFs, and it remains one of the most popular free tools for viewing and editing images.
The program has an intuitive interface that makes it easy to browse through your files and find the ones you want to open. It also has a wide range of editing tools, including basic photo editing options like color correction and cropping. You can also apply filters to your photos or add special effects like sepia tones or black-and-white settings.
One of the first graphic viewers capable of opening multipage TIF files
TIFF is a popular image format that can be used for printing, web and other uses. It is easy to compress and uncompressed. TIFF files are lossless, meaning they retain all of the original data.
The first graphic viewer to support multiple ICO formats
ICO is a graphic file format used to store icons in Microsoft Windows operating systems. ICO files are used by the Windows Explorer, File Manager, and other programs to display icons.
The ICO file format is also used for icons in the Mac OS X operating system, but it uses a more efficient compression method than the Windows version does (compressed using Lempel-Ziv coding).
If you’re looking for an image viewer that supports ICO files, check out IrfanView. It’s free and lets you view all kinds of different images—including ICOs—on your PC with ease.
Creates slideshows with your photos and pictures
You can also create slideshows with your own music. You can add captions, text, and transitions between pictures. The slideshow has a built-in wizard for easy creation of slideshows.
You can save the slideshow in any of the following formats: (Windows Media Player) WMV, (QuickTime) QT, (RealMedia) RM, (MPEG-4) MPEG-4 Video File Format (*Video*), AVI, JPEG Image File Format (*JPG*), GIF Animated Graphics File Format (*GIF*), BMP Bitmap Image File Format (*BMP*), PNG Portable Network Graphics (*PNG*)
Supports more than 50 image formats (including all standard formats like JPG, BMP, TGA, GIF, PNG, PSD etc.)
We know you don’t have time to mess around with image viewers that don’t do their job right. That’s why we’ve built IrfanView Graphic Viewer to support more than 50 image formats (including all standard formats like JPG, BMP, TGA, GIF, PNG, PSD etc.).
It’s fast and simple to use, so you can focus on your work instead of wasting time on your image viewer.
Quick directory navigation (moving through directories)
When you’re looking through your files, the Fast Directory View allows you to quickly navigate through folder structures. This feature is useful if you have a lot of images and need to find something specific quickly.
In this view, you can perform the following operations:
- View details of files (such as file name and size).
- Create new folders.
- Delete unwanted files
Create icons from images or screens
The Icon Editor included in IrfanView allows you to create icons from images or screens.
To use the icon editor:
- Select Icons > Create Icons.
- Select the directory where you want to save all created icons and then click OK. All known bitmap formats are supported by IrfanView (see section “Supported graphic formats”).
Lossless JPG rotation
It is possible to do lossless rotations of JPG, BMP, PNG and GIF files. Lossless means that the image will not be corrupted in any way. You can rotate your images right during the conversion process and see how your image will look like after rotation.

It also allows you to view and edit animated GIFs as well as create slideshows with your photos and pictures. If you need something more advanced than this basic tool though, I recommend looking into some other options like Paint.NET or GIMP which are both free programs with more features than what IrfanView offers.
