    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.

    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.

    pros, cons and recent comments

    Selecting Images for a collection (e.g. Calendar) is easy and works super fast with the keyboard. And another keystroke copies all selected images in a separate folder for printing.
