A stable and very fast tool for viewing and converting image files


Our rating: 


Pros & Cons:

A small fast well featured piece of software - in some ways the most versatile of any; Simple to use and very stable; Multi-monitor support.
Very few - but does not seem to offer an easy route to upload images to the web.

Our Review:

XnView is a really good package and has many of the features of other competitors, but I find it little less fully featured. On the plus side it is stable and very fast and has only a small download.

It can read more than 500 graphic file formats and export to about 70 formats. Other features include image IPTC, EXIF metadata support, editing facilities, slide shows and support in 44 languages. Excellent.

There's a XnView sister program, XnView MP (of which MP I presume stands for multi-platform), which runs on Windows, OS X and Linux. It's currently in beta and less fully featured.
