InfranView is a free image viewer with image editing tools and multimedia player capabilities for Windows OS. Recently its file support has been extended so that now it is even capable of playing audio, video and postscript files (somewhat similar to Mac OS file previewer).
The interface has been improved, and its simplicity and extensive file support make it one of the most downloaded and preferred media viewers in addition to being free.
With the program users are able to crop, resize, adjust levels, add effects and do basic image editing. With the plug-in support users can play MP3, view AVI, MPG, MPEG, MOV and display postscript files, like PDF/EPS.
Other features allow to: rotate an image, acquire OCR images, send file by email, create wallpapers, make slideshows, create thumbnails, insert text, capture screenshots and more.
InfranView started out as a simple picture viewer and now it is even capable of showing CAD, Flash and RAW files. In summary it supports over 50 multimedia file formats, which definitively make it better than any media viewer, even QuickTime.
The program isn’t going to replace a professional image editor or a specialized media player, but it is surely a great multimedia tool to have installed on the computer.
