    nomacs is so far the best contender to irfanview. You can go through images and delete or keep. Scale and cut. Having some trouble with paste, but I hope that is a setting. Or an yet undiscovered feature.

  2. ImageGlass is a simple picture viewer with which you will be able to display your image collection in a very similar way to the one that Windows provides by default, but with some additional functions.

    Bundleware

    The first installer available on the website, presented by the author, "ImageGlass Spider", is bundleware. From the privacy policy: "Also, the software shares available resources with the Spider's customers, to pass traffic through your device."The author is aware of the problem and indecisive on what action to take. Since less experienced users would fall for the "Spider" edition, be careful when downloading this software.

    ImageGlass vs IrfanView opinions
    Almost everyone thinks ImageGlass is a great alternative to IrfanView.

    Best free for commercial use alternative to IrfanView. Small, fast, and better than the default Windows image viewer.

    qView is a Qt-based image viewer designed to be practical and minimal, available for Windows, macOS, and Linux

    qView vs IrfanView opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    IrfanView is not a simple viewer. Take all of what qView does away from IrfanView and you still have a complete program. qView appears to be a good program just not an alternative to IrfanView.

    gThumb vs IrfanView opinions
    Some users think gThumb is a great alternative to IrfanView, some don't.

    It lacks the simplicity and the 'just-works' feel of Irfan. gThumb keeps resizing images, doesn't respond logically to a scroll wheel and has an overal annoying interface.

    gThumb does not have some of the more important and convenient features found in IrfanView.
