Free Software Friday

I’ve known about IrFanView for years, but I always thought that it was just another image viewer app.  Little more than the built in windows image viewer.  I was WAY off!

This sweet little app is a swiss army knife of basic image editing, audio and video playback and a whole lot more.  It will do screen captures of all kinds (even on a timed basis – thanks Jared!), slide show of a directory of images, and batch file conversion and renaming. 

I thought the “Panaorama Image” feature was particularly cool.  You point the app at a series of images and it will stitch them together into a single view.  All this and it can capture images from a scanner too!  Very cool.
