IrfanView 4.10 – Image Viewer and Converter

Posted in Fun Stuff, Graphics, Site News, Utilities, Windows


Apart from Adobe Photoshop, IrfanView 4.10 is another alternative which users can opt for image conversion. Some of the basic features are as follow:

  1. - View images
  2. - Image format conversion
  3. - Image optimisation
  4. - Scan and print images
  5. - Slideshow creation
  6. - Batch processing
  7. - Play movies and sounds
  8. - and others…

The features that I like best about IrfanView is that it is lightweight, yet capable of performing batch processing as well as slideshow creation. Undoubtedly, this is one good software to go, if you are short of cash to purchase expensive photo editing softwares.

Recommended Software of the Week – Picasa 2

Posted in Fun Stuff, Graphics, Site News, Utilities, Web Apps, Windows


Picasa 2 was initially developed by Google three years ago and released as a free software. In spite of this, Picasa is still one of the most popular and useful photo album around to manage photos and pictures located in the PC’s hard disk drive.

Picasa is not just a image library, it also include editing tools for enhancing photo images. For example, Fill Light is a tuning tool that brightens or darkens picture that contains dark backgrounds (e.g. someone with his back to the sun).

Picasa is definitely recommended software of the week. You should have it as long as you have digital photos and purchasing professional softwares, such as Adobe Photoshop, become expensive.

Picasa can be downloaded here.
