I tried downloading this program and it would not open on my Vista Computer?

Now it is to late to take advantage of the free offer!

Hope they give us another chance to download and install to a Vista system!

No: 56 Laura.

(here is Irfan, the author or IrfanView)

Laura: you are probably an "expert" and you can show all of us, which malware etc. is in IrfanView?

And of course, why you can't uninstall it, which "traces" are left in the system?

=> tell us facts!

Writing incorrect/stupid stuff without proof and facts is not nice.

If you don't know where from to download a software, use CNet. (this is also the default download link on my website)

If you get a software from a phishing site and get malware, you must not blame the software for this, you should blame you!

What you get for free. I tried several old, useless progs like this. The standard is the prog in MS Word - crop & resize fast. But, Word will not save graphics in JPG. Old git

Yes, it has very few features compared to something like photoshop, but it's a light-weight program that makes it easy to crop and resize photos. I actually had a big pile of photos that needed to be resized the day this program was released and was dreading opening every one in photoshop because it's really not worth it to load that RAM-heavy program unless I'm going to be doing some serious editing, which I was not.

So I wandered over here, and bingo! A small program that let me resize all my phots much faster than photoshop would have. I approve.

Hi Folks,

There is no justification for slandering a well respected program like Irfanview if you do not have supporting information. As the previous poster said you may not downloaded it from a reliable site (e.g. the author, Snapfiles and Fileforum are the 3 reliable sites I recommend) and somebody could play tricks. Most shareware sites do not do much checking on their files, but at least the other reputable ones (Tucows, Softpedia, PCMag, and many more) should get them from the author. MajorGeeks and Nonags might get some good note, as well.

How to check supporting information ? Check Snapfiles, Fileforum, CNet/Download.com see what are in the reader reviews (those are known for generally legit reader reviews) also you can check Wilders and Castlecops.

Put the name of the program in Google with the name of the locale for a quickfind.

Generally, a quick rag of a well-respected program, without supporting info, for having 'nasties' is going to be found to be wrong.

Shalom,
Steven

I downloaded this no problem. My teenaged son just used it to edit photos for the first time. It worked well for him. Other programs we've tried are complicated for him at this point. So we're happy. Free, doesn't take up much space, kid likes it--what's not to like?

For those of you who don't know, many people who work from home must have a "clean" computer with nothing that could compromise their clients' information. Sometimes they are not even allowed to have game programs on their computers. Home work rarely pays enough to have a second computer for personal use. Laura is a professional and doing the right thing being cautious. Would you want your medical info. going out because a transcriptionist working from home downloaded malware?

Thanks for the programs, GAOTD and Happy Holidays everyone!

Please Get Your Facts Straight. Before you slander a program!You say some software has many NASTIES and Malware in it. But then you give away your real understanding of things when you say maybe it comes from the MIRRORS one downloads from. Do you know? I dont think you know any way enough to advise people.
Do you think the publishers of IrFanview enjoy EXPERTS like you.
And if as you state your computer is to valuable to download software on to....What are you coming here for....is it to give your expert software reviews.Please dont post if you have no thing of value to say.

Don't dismiss this too quickly.
Has some sophisticated features for such a small program,
including adjust levels (3 channels), adjust curves with user-defined points(lacking in many free and expensive photo programs)and a unique colorize option for hue/saturation-- to name a few.
It's not Photoshop, but if you use it for a while it might grow on you.

A Merry Christmas to all!

Nice for basic editing of colors contrast and similair other picture attributes, it works exactly as i need to enhance my photos. if your looking for more in a photo pic editor my only reccommendation hands down to edit and enhance pics to the ultimate is located at: www.photodex.com the program is called: CompuPic Professional (and with good reason!!!) it does all i ever need to do to pics such as, borders, red eye removal, caption adding color correction, slideshows of various degrees, the list goes on and on, happy holiDUH I mean Days have a good one.

The best free software out there I have found is Fastone FS Viewer. http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm

They also have a freeware image resizer that does a great job and is very easy to use.

I liked their software so much, I donated $30 to them.

#45 Doug... right on. While I have downloaded and continue to use only about 1 out of every 50 offerings on here, I mostly like it when Members point us to other software that is out there. I have obtained many good programs as a result of Members taking the time to suggest alternatives.

As to this program, meh. I have been using photo editing software since 1997, back when digital cameras were just becoming affordable.

There are some better programs that are free and have been around for about seven years or more. The developers have had the time to refine the programs to where in 2008 they are bug free and feature rich.

As to Irfanview, which is more an image viewer rather than an editor, my hat's off to Irfan. He was one of the first to provide people with a freeware image viewer, back when others were charging for programs or posting buggy freeware. Irfan has prospered and I am happy for him. In 2007 his program now does many image edits the same as this program.

There's lots of freeware alternatives to this program which I consider a very basic image editor. You can go on the Net to find them, or you can try this one. I think Gimp is a great program, but that may be too complex for most users.

A great source for all this is Wikipedia. They have a great amount of info on image editors and viewers. For example, click the below links. They will tell you about the viewers out there and what edit functions each has and also explain terms and editing functions such as those contained in this program.

Sunlit does what it says but needs more development, especially at $29.99.

I work with photos everyday. Mainly color correction, batch resizing, batch renaming, optimizing for the web etc..
In order of best to worst imo

1)Photoshop
2)Fastone (free)
3)ACDsee, Picassa (free)

I can't stand the gimp, too complicated. Irfanview is horrible.
Will try the others mentioned above.

Sunlit just need more development and it may make that list ;^)

This is to photofiltre/picasa/ifran what buggies are to the Model T. Oh, and nobody needs "one more version of the wheel", especially if the original wheel is free.

Calvin of # 27; I have to really doubt if vendors use these comments much in deciding prices. In light that most offers lead to free software that may or may not be better than the offer, it's surprising they would make these offers at all.. Hell the leads to other software is why I pay much attention to this comment section. :)

does appear that Belgian Dude doesn't fully understand the idea about Giveaway. While one is given a day to download, install, register the software, the application remains free to use for longer than a day. In essence these offers are shareware, shareware that's fully functional, with no time limit. The only time one would have to consider purchasing the software is if the computer with the free install fails or if the user desires to install it on additional or a new computer. No one will buy a product after using it if they don't feel it's worth the asking price. BD calling anyone who would buy it stupid is no better than Wesley calling BD a moron.

Hi GAOTD and members.

For someone that hasn't got photo editing software, who is just starting out with his/her first computer, perhaps a child or a pensioner, or for someone that cannot handle/are scared of complicated photo editing programs, then this little offering is absolutely ideally suited and for that I thank you, GAOTD.

Is it worth the money - that depends on what you are prepared to pay and what else of this type (Ie Simple to use) is available.

Now, to the members who continually bemoan the offerings on here because there is freeware available I say, Thank You - But I think that the point has been made by now, about this offering and ALL of the previous, Dont You? Is it not time for you to 'Shut Up!'

And for those of you who believe that we should be forever grateful to the team at GAOTD because they are giving us something for absolutely NOTHING!!!, then I suggest that you take your head out of your arses and wise up. NOTHING's for NOTHING!!

We are testing software and choosing to keep it if it serves our purpose and purchasing the 'Real Thing' at a later date if the later offering has a lot to offer based on what we have already learned from the free offering. We are reporting back to this site with our findings - both good and bad so that the developers can improve the software, thereby helping them to make more money. This is just business.

GAOTD is also giving other software designers an idea of what the public should expect in a piece of software for themselves to implement in their own design.

The list goes on but I don't suppose thsat I am likely to influence the illiterate amongst you that continue to plague this site with your mutterings, therefore I will LEARN TO ACCEPT THE THINGS WE CANNOT CHANGE.

Anyhow A VERY MERRY XMAS to all at GAOTD and to ALL of the members - even the grumpy ones.:).

1.Irfan View,
2.Picassa,
3.XnView,
4.PhotoFilter,and
5.The GIMP

I come a lot but do not paste. The idea of GAOTD is to receive things for free (like Christmas) but, feed back is the most respected "thing" appreciated here. the program does what is it says it does and ,sorry , but not much more the price is adequate considering all software is $19.99 and up, but some freeware does this and more for "FREE"ware.BUT LEARN TO ACCEPT THINGS YOU CANT CHANGE.

Interesting concept in the small spartan photo editor, the kind paint shop pro was at the start, but here very few tools, the ergonomics of the front feature "curves" is fubar with my mouse.

The home site smells of a fly by night operation, with no description of the "features", so few they are. Is there a trojan or GAOTD teams hand crafted this joke to have something to give ? ;-)

Hi- first time poster.

As a semi professional artist my self I have to say that 30 bucks for this is way not worth it. The lack of functions make this an extreamly useless program. Although it does exactly what it says and did install without hastle and runs properly.

It need much more development.

An almost identical in design freeware app but fully developed with dozens of filters is:

http://photofiltre.free.fr/

I am allways on the lookout for more and varied graphics software.

Thanks for reading this :)

I think that I will pass on this one. I have all of the freeware programs that were listed plus a Adobe Photoshop and elements. When there is excellent freeware available to perform the same function, a developer should explore niche application development.
I understand the principle of promotional give-aways. However there should be true value when a price is listed.
On another note, trashing another persons point of view is rather infantile and should be discouraged. There is no good reason for the kind of anger demonstrated in so many of the comments in the past few weeks.
I always visit GAOTD to check on the latest offering and make my own judgments when possible.
Thank you GAOTD for providing so much in the way of new offerings.

MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

To Wesley Evans, who cleary can't comprehend the idea about Giveway.

The price of the software does count. The reason of it being free today is for promotional reasons and to get reviews. That there are people like Wesley whom don't have the intelligence to understand that is not our problem.

I guess he is one of those that think that anything that is 'free' for a day is marvelous, no matter how limit it's functionality is or how overly priced it normally is.

The price matters because it shows how detached from the reality the maker of the program is. It shows how little respect for his customers he has. It also shows that there must be a lot of stupid people around that would actually pay the normal price. So sue me for trying to warn other people about it.

It also shows the lack of empathy, insight, reason and common sense Wesley Evans has.
