    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.

  4. 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.

  7. HoneyView is a fast image viewer that supports archived image files for comics/manga/photos. Its design is light and the interface skin can be changed. You can set HoneyView as your default image viewer and also add a shell context menu.

    HoneyView vs IrfanView opinions
    Most users think HoneyView is a great alternative to IrfanView.

    Allows lots of settings for mouse buttons and wheel allowing me to zoom in and out with the click of a mouse button and scroll my images up/down at a sensible speed with my mouse wheel. Absolutely brilliant program. Lightweight and stands head and shoulders above Microsoft Photos (Windows 10). Has now taken over from IrfanView.

  8. qView

    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.
