Welcome to XnView, the Universal Graphic Viewer and Converter.
With XnView you can quickly and easily view, process and convert image files. XnView is able to read more than 500 different formats and then convert them to other formats such as GIF, BMP, JPG, PNG, multi page TIFF. XnView can also display video formats, many digital camera formats and more exotic formats such as Amiga IFF and Calamus.
The Image viewer (Browser) is similar to Windows Explorer. You simply navigate the directory structure as desired and any image files found in a directory are displayed in miniature (Thumbnails). This lets you keep an overview of the images available at the same time as letting you quickly view and select specific images. XnView can be run without installation and this makes it perfect to be used as a "photograph album on CD", especially as it is free of charge for private use.
As well as offering easy image viewing, XnView also offers more advanced features such as Web page creation, contact prints, multiple conversion (format and transformation), slide shows, screen capturing and Twain support for scanners and digital cameras. Numerous image filters and effects for image processing are available. The connection to other widely used professional graphic programs e.g.Adobe Photoshop, can be done using 'Drag and Drop', clipboard or 'Open With' Menu option.
XnView lets you create the optimal defaults according to your needs and preferences, thereby letting you work in the most efficient manner. The integrated file operations such as copying, moving, creation of directories and files makes XnView the universal tool for graphics.
