Irfanview 4.00: A fast and sleek webtool for image management

IrfanView is a very fast, small, compact and innovative FREEWARE (for non-commercial use) graphic viewer for Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista.

The official website of IrfanView claims that Irfanview is trying to create new and/or interesting features in its own way, unlike some other graphic viewers, whose whole "creativity" is based on feature cloning, stealing of ideas and whole dialogs from ACDSee and/or IrfanView! (for example: XnView has been stealing/cloning features and whole dialogs from IrfanView, for 7+ years).

IrfanView has the ability to convert images between most of the supported formats. IrfanView can also perform some basic image editing and processing functions, including cut, crop, resize, resample, change the color depth, adjust brightness, and adjust contrast.

A new version Irfanview 4.00 has just been released. You can check out the new features at versiontracker and download it from there. Alternatively you can directly download the new vresions from this link.
