Free Photo Viewer 1.2
Clean environment and quick setup
The installation process does not last very long and does not pose any kind of problems, such as changing web browser settings or downloading products you do not actually need.
The interface of the application is clean and easy to navigate through, as it only consist of a menu bar, a few buttons, a folder structure and a few panes in which to preview images and display metadata. As a result, both power users and beginners can learn how to handle it with ease.
Options you can access and tweak
This software utility enables you to view pictures in a full screen mode, zoom in and out, as well as convert images to others formats (JPEG, BMP, GIF, PNG, TGA), and save EXIF and IPTC tags.
Furthermore, you can view file properties, access Explorer, change the viewing mode (e.g. large icons, list, details), rotate and resize photos, adjust image brightness, contrast, gamma, saturation and color balance.
Additionally, you can create a slideshow, use a search function according to the images' EXIF information, hide the mouse cursor in full screen mode, set file associations, use keyboard shortcuts, and more.
Performance and conclusion
The image viewer runs on a low-to-moderate amount of system resources, contains a well-written Help file and daily tips, and ran smoothly during our tests. It has a very good response time and we have not come across any errors.
Overall, some users may find Free Photo Viewer with its minimalistic features refreshing, in comparison with more advanced similar software.
