IrfanView is simple, fast, and free for individual use. The program lets you open and edit images as well as multiple media formats. You can cut and crop images, apply batch conversions, add sharpen or blur effects, create panoramas, and change color modes easily. The program continues to add support for an array of file formats and has plug-in support for most image, video, and sound formats, including MP3, AVI, audio CD, and WMA. The interface is far from fancy and is downright awkward in spots--when you're opening thumbnails in a separate window, for example. Once you get the hang of the interface, however, IrfanView works wonderfully as an image editor--but it's not going to replace a major paint program. The image viewer works even better, providing multiple ways to preview image collections. IrfanView wraps about every feature you could desire into an image viewer in a free, compact download.
