XnView Reviews

I prefer XnView to IrfanView or FastStone Image Viewer

about XnView · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful Report as spam

I've tested XnView Standard version, IrfanView and FastStone Image Viewer. I liked XnView the most, because:

  1. XnView scales well in Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on 150% DPI.

  2. XnView has a tabbed interface, therefore viewing multiple images is very comfortable.

  3. XnView has an option to show image properties (EXIF information), such as date taken, camera model that was used to take that image etc., in program's title bar.

If you're looking for a free image viewer and basic editor, I suggest to try XnView first.

A year or 2 ago, I had 50-75 photoshop files that I needed to convert to .pngs. doing so through photoshop was plausible, but would take forever to load each image and then export. I don't remember how long it took with this program, but I remember being relieved that it was so easy. It looks a little intimidating but ended up being pretty straightforward.

I use it to view my photos, batch rename (as yyyy.mm.dd - hh.mm.ss######) and batch resize etc. to archive the photos which taken by my phone and camera etc.

good but perfectible

There's many little bugs in this software. Altough they don't make it crash, they make it annoying to use in some cases, specially when dealing with thumbnails.

Could you be more specific? Failure to handle Unicode names is a deal breaker for me.

Multiple instances

I really like it for allowing multiple instances. Having a single instance isa real downer when working with a lot of images.
