IMAGE BASED SOFTWARE - IRFANVIEW

Sharing about an excellent software ( forgot to share it before though i have been using it for quite some time). The software is IRFANVIEW, www.irfanview.com . It is an excellent software which does so much, so can't really put it under any single category. It serves the purpose of a viewer, converter, slideshow maker, image editor, media player and so on. Though it does not boast of a very impressive interface, which is because of a dearth of toolbar options but the capabilities are quite impressive. The user needs some time to get comfortable with the menu but once done, user can work wonders with it. Everytime i have used this tool, i have discovered some new capability. It is quite a comprehensive software and can solve many requirements of a teacher. Some of the features that i have explored/ experimented are
  • editing images
  • creating executable slideshows
  • compressing images
  • creating panoramic images
I can go on and on and still there are options that i haven't yet explored.

With a range of plug-ins available, one couldn't ask for a better tool

A very good tool and thanks to Irfan Skiljan for being pretty regular in coming out with updates/ revisions.

These facts are really interesting. Few of them were well known for me but many of them were brand new for me too!
I will print this one out and show to my friends because they will be definitely interested in that. Thanks!
