The interface of IrfanView is rather simple. You will see a large black window – this is where your images will be displayed. At the bottom of the program window you will also see essential information about the image like size, date taken, resolution, color depth and more. The functionality of the program resides, however, in the toolbar on top of the image window. It does not offer anything revolutionary but you still get all the tools you will need to work with your images. You can open, delete, save, zoom in/out of files, go back and forward and more. The File-Help menus in the upper left corner also offer numerous functions, even more than the toolbar. In a few words – IrfanView can be simple and useful to the average user and at the same time powerful for the professionals out there.

Basic Operations

As with many other programs to do anything with IrfanView you must first open a supported file. Only then can you work with the file. Strangely enough IrfanView 4.41 does not support drag-and-drop, which means you will have to open each file manually. Once opened you can apply numerous effects to it such as rotation, color correction, conversions, sharpening, color replacement and more. This is why IrfanView is free for non-commercial use, but if you want to make money out of it you must pay a royalty to its author.


IrfanView is easily one of the finest image editors and viewers in the world so no wonder the program has been with us for nearly 20 years. It combines a small file size, easy installation and numerous features with low system requirements – a combination that makes it a winner. Still, if you want to use it for commercial purposes you will have to pay for it but in any other case the program is free. And really, it can't get any better than this.
