First Impression is a software tool whose purpose is to provide a simple means of viewing pictures with commonly used formats.
The installation process is a piece of cake, as it does not last longer than a few minutes and it does not offer to download or add any items that are not actually necessary for the program to fully function. Once you are done with it, you are greeted by a minimal interface, as you can only view the opened picture. It becomes quite clear it can be used with great ease by anybody, from beginners to highly experienced people.
Supported extensions and options to tinker with
This software utility enables you to upload BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG and TIF images with the help of a built-in file browser, yet you should know it is possible to go to the next, previous, first or last photo with just a click of the button.
Properties such as location, size, attributes and last accessed time and date can be brought up, while pictures can be flipped or rotated. Zooming in and out is available, as well as using the original size or enabling a full screen mode. Last, but not least, opened pictures can be set as a desktop wallpaper or Note Mania’s background.
Performance and conclusion
CPU and memory usage is minimal, which means that the computer’s performance is not going to be hampered in any way and it can be used alongside other programs, without facing difficulties. The interface is intuitive, the response time is good and we did not detect any kind of issues. Taking all of this into consideration, we can safely say First Impression is a tiny, yet efficient piece of software. Nevertheless, its overall simplicity might ward off power users.
