    XnView has dozens of tools and filters for fast image editing, as well as an integrated file manager with several functions to organize images. Besides everything runs on both Windows and Linux. It's a bit slow compared to Irfanview, but it's still one of the best programs of its kind.

    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.

    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.
