IrfanView ALL plugins
IrfanView is not just an image viewer. Of course, it can open virtually any image format, but it can also get support for a wide variety of media files by using a collection of plugins. This particular set of plugins is everything you need in order to cross the boundaries of simple picture viewing and handling within IrfanView.
The IrfanView PlugIns collection's installation is straightforward and deploys all content within the PlugIns directory of your IrfanView installation location for on-the-go usage. This impressive set truly brings added value to an almost encyclopedic supported file formats list.
Once the installation process finishes, you cannot be wrong in assuming your IrfanView to be a distinguished media and document viewer that comes with a sophisticated set of newly learned skills. First, there is the support for reading Adobe Photoshop 8BF filters, Artweaver or BodyPaint 3D files. You can also burn your slideshows to CD or DVD now using the Nero Burning ROM software, read CAD files (DXF, DWG or SVG) and even more special image formats such as Canon's CRW/CR2, Kodak's PCD, EA Sports' FSH, Valve's VTF, Webshot's WBZ/WBC/WB1, Microsoft's HDP/WDP, ECW, EXR, FlashPix, ICS, JPEG2000, JPEG-LS, MNG, JNG, MRC, SID, SFF or WSQ files.
By applying this plugin collection, IrfanView can load DICOM formats (DCM, ACR, IMA) or DJVU documents, send images as emails, read Flash/Shockwave/FLV files, transfer files from Thumbnails window using FTP, save PDF files, play video/sound/audio-CD files using Windows Media Player, read Nokia Logo files, handle EXIF/IPTC/Comment information from compatible files, play MP3/MP2/MP1 files, paint lines, circles, arrows or straighten image. The application is also able to read EPS/PS/PDF files using Ghostscript, play QuickTime and Real files, capture a rectangle area of the screen, play OGG files and even read some rare image formats (PSP, XPM, RLE, WBMP, TTF, FITS, PIC, HDR, WAL, DNG, NEF, DCR, X3F, CAM, YUV or PVR).
IrfanView's PlugIns collection goes beyond the job of making the software better. It undoubtedly and radically remodels the way we see IrfanView by further widening the spectrum of supported file formats and the available operations.
