Irfanview is a great image viewer, but there are sooooooo many more things you can do with Irfanview that go well beyond just viewing the pictures from your digital camera and resizing or cropping and rotating them - and it's all free!
  • batch conversion - ultrafast!
  • self-running slideshows - which include mp3 sountracks too
  • screen savers - make your own
  • annotations for tutorials (with the IrfanPaint plugin)
  • screen captures - manual, automatic capture for timelapse movie creation, with cursor, from region, from window, from full screen,  multi-screen...
  • extracting frames from an animation (AVI) into image sequence
  • creating an HTML thumbnail spritesheet for the web
  • use it with programmable digital painting tools such as Project Dogwaffle through Irfanview's command-line options
  • use it as a cup holder.... er, no, nope, sorry, no, that we haven't figured out yet how. Maybe some day, maybe some day Irfanview will be everywhere. I'm pretty sure it went with Klipsi to Antarctica in 2003 and to the Northpole in 2008 after being a silent but very important participant already back in 1998 during the great Carribean eclipse, and I can just  imagine the day when it will be seen in a screenshot aboard the ISS during a casual video game party, or perhaps on a maiden voyage to Mars, .... but, a cup holder?
You can also find many command line options to run Irfanview from other applications, and you can find very interesting ways to work around some limitations. For example, if you want to extract a frame sequence from another movie format such as Mpeg, just to an automatic screen capture while running the movie in another irfanview session. You can also change the playback speed if your system is too slow to handle it in realtime.

Okay then, now that we have that clarified, here's a first of tutorials using Irfanview to help you appreciate this great tool:
