Irfanview (G) - "software/imaging"

It is trying to be simple for beginners and powerful for professionals.

IrfanView is trying to create new and/or interesting features in its own way, unlike some other graphic viewers, whose whole "creativity" is based on feature cloning, stealing of ideas and whole dialogs from ACDSee and/or IrfanView! (for example: XnView has been stealing/cloning features and whole dialogs from IrfanView, for 7+ years).

IrfanView was the first Windows graphic viewer WORLDWIDE with Multiple (animated) GIF support.
One of the first graphic viewers WORLDWIDE with Multipage TIF support.
The first graphic viewer WORLDWIDE with Multiple ICO support.

Some IrfanView features:
    -Many supported file formats (click here the list of formats)
    -Multi language support
    -Thumbnail/preview option
    -Toolbar skins option
    -Slideshow (save slideshow as EXE/SCR or burn it to CD)
    -Show EXIF/IPTC/Comment text in Slideshow/Fullscreen etc.
    -Support for Adobe Photoshop Filters
    -Fast directory view (moving through directory)
    -Batch conversion (with image processing)
    -Multipage TIF editing
    -File search
    -Email option
    -Multimedia player
    -Print option
    -Change color depth
    -Scan (batch scan) support
    -IPTC editing
    -Effects (Sharpen, Blur, Adobe 8BF, Filter Factory, Filters Unlimited, etc.)
    -Extract icons from EXE/DLL/ICLs
    -Lossless JPG rotation
    -Many hotkeys
    -Many command line options
    -Many PlugIns
    -Only one EXE-File, no DLLs, no Shareware messages like "I Agree" or "Evaluation expired"
    -No registry changes without user action/permission!
    -and much much more

This program is most likely the best imaging edit software around. The supported file format list they have includes over 80 formats, including video and some sound! One impressive feature that I use is the batch process, that allows to not only convert a bunch of files from one to another, it also allows you to do a mass rename of a bunch of files. I use it to both resize a bunch of my huge images and rename the files at the same time. The rename is powerful, and even allows me to rename all my files to the date the picture was taken, so a picture taken on Dec 9th of 2001 at 2:00 AM would be renamed to 011209 @ 020000 (or however I want to do the format). If you do pictures, want to edit or make animated .gif, and simply enjoy free programs that appear to almost do it all, this is a total must. I have not had any problems with this software, and I use it on both my desktops and both my laptops. This should be part of the operating system!
I will have something here... at some point...
